Prayer



"Prayer lays hold of God's plan and becomes the link between His will and its accomplishment on earth. Things happen which would not happen without prayer. Let's not forget that. Amazing things happen, and we are given the privilege of being the channels of the Holy Spirit's prayer....we often feel helpless and hopeless until we remember, 'We do not know how to pray worthily as sons of God, but His Spirit within us is actually praying for us in those agonizing longings which never find words'(Romans 8:26, Phillips)."

Elisabeth Elliot

Blessings,
Linda

  1. So true...so true. Sometimes the deepest prayer is simply, "Ah, Lord God...", knowing He already knows what we have need of before we ask.

    Love you, Linda!

  3. "Prayer lays hold of God's plan and becomes the link between His will and its accomplishment on earth." This is the part that God has enabled us to participate in as His co-laborers. thanks for the reminder Linda,
