1.27.18 – Phi 1:19

Each and every day of our lives comes with absolutes. Some greater than others but nonetheless they are certain. Yours may range from a morning cup of coffee to a child running to hug you as you walk through the door at the end of the day. It’s comforting to have things in our lives that we look forward to with confidence. Can you place prayer in this category? Paul, while in-prisoned by the Romans, writes of his joy, partly due to the fact he knew the Philippians were in prayer for him. Paul himself being a man of prayer knew the power that prayer holds. James 5:16b – The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Do you devote time each day to spend with God in prayer? If not, why not? If you desire to be closer to God, there is no better way to do that then spending time with him. In doing so, sharing your concerns and desires, via prayer, is very much the same as we would with any other dear friend. As we experience answered prayer, our confidence (faith) and relationship with Him grows. It is powerful, it is meaningful, it is absolute! Philippians 1:19 – for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, #devotionals
