GOD’S WORD SAYS PRAYER IS A GIFT THAT IS GIVEN.
John 16:24 (Amplified Bible) declares so clearly why this is true:
Up to this time you have not asked a thing in MY name; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your JOY may be full and complete.
Your prayers are a major part of our mission here at Houston Northeast Aglow.
WE WOULD CHALLENGE AND ENCOURAGE YOU TO RELEASE YOUR FAITH AND SEND PRAYER REQUESTS (please be as specific as possible) TO OUR CONFIDENTIAL E-MAIL:
In addition to submitting requests at our monthly Aglow meetings, we are excited to be blessed to be able to give you another opportunity of allowing us the privilege and honor of praying. We will pray on your behalf, lifting your confidential prayer requests to God in the power of agreement.
Matt 18:19 says:
“I also tell you this: If two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”
What Does God Say?
1Thess. 5:16-18: Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
James 5:16: Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Rom. 12:11-12: Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Phil. 4:5-7: Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
We as Christians know the power of prayer; however, in the busyness of daily living, it is so easy to forgo and forget. In God’s economy, prayer moves mountains, changes the atmosphere, restores, heals, and equips His chosen—it must be specific with earnest supplications and persistence. Jesus Himself prayed earnestly in
“who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear.”
We see in Matt. 7:7 and Luke 11:9, where God repeats Himself with the words—the ever-famous Scripture:
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
