Prayer....it works!

And in case you don't know it by now, let me give you some stories to prove my point.....

Case #1

Louis Palau and City Fest came to Little Rock this past weekend. We have been praying and working for this for over a year!! But if you have been reading my blog for the last several months, you know we have been inundated with rain. We have already received over 61 inches of rain this year!!! And have had record rainfall in October. The days, and weeks, leading up to City Fest were dark and full of rain. We had over 1000 people on our prayer list for City Fest and one of our top prayers was for the weather. That the weather would clear up so the lost would come to hear the word of God. Well, it rained up to the day before it was to start.

The day of........perfectly clear blue sky. Not one cloud in it!!!!!

The weather remained like this through out City Fest and come Monday morning......the rain was back. It has poured ever since....and still is!!! What an amazing weekend it was and many heard the word of God. My son trained as a counselor and he said that Sunday night they had a hard time getting to all the people that wanted to hear more about our Savior!!!!

How cool is that?!

Case #2

Most of you know that I have a "Praying for you" tab at the top of my blog. If you don't, please check it out. I have committed to praying for each of you that post requests there and I believe that others are using it to pray for you too. I would love for each of you to head over there right now and just read the comments. We have had some awesome answers to prayer!!!!

We have been praying for a couple of families whose husbands have chosen to leave. I truly believe that satan is focused on attacking families and specifically husbands. And as we have joined in praying for them, we have seen one husband come home with a desire to make his marriage work!!! Praise God!!!

Won't you join me in praying for these requests?

Prayer is such a powerful tool.

And one that we ALL can take part in.

Thank you for this reminder that prayer is our most powerful tool. You are so right. We should never cease to pray or give up hope. :)

You brought to mind the old saying, "Prayer changes things."

The world would be in an entirely different place if more Christians stepped up to the role of PRAYER WARRIOR.
I'm so thankful for your pliable heart -- that you've allowed the Lord to use you this way.
