In Times of Testing, Jesus Is So Worth It

Have you ever felt as if everything was going opposite the Lord’s promises? Have you felt like throwing in the towel, wondering if you’ve missed it because nothing worthwhile seems to be happening anymore?

Prayer Warriors

I’m convinced some of the greatest in the Kingdom of God are those we’ve never heard of and who perhaps are often stuck at home unable to do much that seems worthy to the world.

They are warriors in the Spirit, always interceding.

They may never see the results of their prayers this side of Heaven. Nonetheless, heaps of people touched by their intercession await them in a grand homecoming.

Your prayers are effective! What does His Word say?

“The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” James 5:16 (AMP)

When you feel there is nothing you can do for God, lean into Jesus and pray. Pray His Word and pray in the Spirit. Ask Him for His heart and pray, pray, pray.

You are affecting far more than you know for the Kingdom.
