Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/17/14

This week’s scripture is from Mark:

Jesus Christ -- Heinrich Hofmann“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”    (Mark 11:24)

Let us remember we need always to pray. When things are good, we should pray; when things are not good we should pray. When the weight of things and the trials of life are hard upon us we sometimes struggle to pray. Yet our Lord is ever-faithful, and what He asks is that we pray in faith believing that He hears our prayers and that He will answer our prayers.

May the Holy Spirit prompt us to look to the Lord in prayer every day, first with thanksgiving, and then in petition stating exactly what we want or need. He knows what we need before we even ask, but He wants us to ask. Let us remember to pray not in fancy or religious words, but directly from our heart, speaking to Him as beloved children speak to their Father.

May the Lord bless you as you pray this very day.
