Communion with God through prayer is our most powerful resource. With our prayer not only can we change our circumstances, we can also change the world. You don’t have to be spiritual to know that prayer is important. Recently Justin Bieber asked his fans for prayer to overcome depression. “Just feeling super disconnected and weird…I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for you guys to pray for me.” Wrote Bieber. Although I am not a fan, I prayed that Justin would surrender his life to Christ. One of his fans, Michelle Caissi, however prayed this prayer “You are in my prayers that God will give you the strength to overcome your depression. Bring light over darkness and happiness over sadness. You are not alone…Keep faith and going to therapy. It helps.” I know we pray but how often do we pray for all men (women). Our prayer shouldn’t be focused only on our needs or the needs of our families. We should constantly pray for pastors, teachers, missionaries, and others who are spreading the Gospel. Our prayers can potentially hinder Satan who challenges anyone making a real difference for God. 80% of the time, we should communicate (with God) instead of positively criticizing or confronting in love. We should also pray for our presidents, governors and everyone in authority around the world so that there will be peace and an atmosphere for the propagation of the gospel.
