THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
When a person enjoys sweet communion with God through prayer,
it will take more than the threat of a den of lions to keep that
person from enjoying prayer!
Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house;
and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem,
he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed,
and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
1 Tim 2:1-4
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet
and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together;
and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
Tomorrow, May 1, 2014, is the National Day of Prayer.
The theme this year is “One Voice, United in Prayer.”
Rom 15:6 says, “That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God,
even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The power of individual prayer is seen in Daniel. (See Dan. 6:10 above)
Though prayer was forbidden, he still prayed.
When he was tossed in the lion’s den, God shut the mouths of the lions!
The power of prayer in unity is shown in Acts 4:31 above.
When the disciples gathered to give thanks for those released from prison,
they also asked that God give them boldness to speak for Christ.
The whole house “was shaken!”
And, they received the boldness they requested.
Prayer is the door which should open our every morning,
and close our every evening.
Tomorrow, may we pray in unison for our nation.
Pray for those in “authority”! (1Tim. 2:1-4 above)
Pray that God will once again give Christ preeminence in our nation’s leadership.
Pray that God will restore moral righteousness to our leaders.
Pray that all fellow Christians will have “boldness” to speak in Christ’s Name.
Let’s shake the house!
