Encouragement for your daily walk with God
Concerning prayer, Charles Spurgeon wrote, "Prayer pulls the rope below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly. Others give but an occasional pluck at the rope. But he who wins with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously, with all his might."
I believe in prayer! I hope you do too. When a Christ follower prays, he/she should do so expecting for God to bring the answer! Why can we pray so expectantly, you ask? There are many reasons, not the least of which is His faithfulness. He is faithful—and just and loving—with an everlasting love!
Raise your voices dear saints. And expect great things from God. There is an old gospel hymn titled, Prayer Bells of Heaven. The refrain goes like this:
Prayer bells of heaven, oh how sweetly they ring,
Bearing a message unto Jesus, our King.
If you are burdened down with troubles and cares;
Ring on and on for God will answer your prayers!
Therefore I say to you, Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. Mark 11:24
