DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Your Prayers Carry Weight With God
Jam. 5:13a; 2 Chro. 20:15-16
Jehoshaphat recited some high points of Israel’s history with God when he was confronted with challenges. Jehoshaphat’s prayers touched the heart of God and He responded. Another typical example was the case of Abraham and Sarah in the land of Gerar (Gen. 20:2). The king of the land, Abimelech, had acted in ignorance, and thus sent to fetch Sarah to be with him. Eventually, she was rescued from the king’s custody. Sarah must have touched the heart of God through her prayers that night; although, it was not recorded that she prayed. Are you really keen on entering your next level? Then, you cannot afford to ignore prevailing prayers. Arise today and hold on to the Lord in prayers until your answers are delivered.
Point of Emphasis: Earnest prayers produce wonderful results.
Prayer Point: Bestow upon me O Lord my God, understanding to know Thee, diligence to seek Thee, wisdom to find Thee, and faithfulness that will finally embrace Thee.
