All I Can Do Is Pray


Have you ever said "All I can do is pray?", I have. Billy Graham says that's the equivalent of offering a starving man food. Meaning, it's the BEST we can offer someone. Praying unlocks the doors of Heaven and releases the power of God. God wants us to pray for others, He uses our prayers to touch their lives.

Sometimes we see the fruit of our prayers instantly, hours after we pray them, or years later. Who can you pray for today?



pray without ceasing,
1 Thessalonians 5:17

Yet you do not have because you do not ask.
James 4:2

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; Philippians 4:6

Excerpts taken from "Hope for Each Day ~ Words of Wisdom and Faith" by Billy Graham

Have a blessed day my friends.

One of the symptoms of the "all I can do" mentality is that I sometimes wait until I've exhausted all other lines of attack that I can manage on my own, and then remember that I can pray.
I'm trying to outgrow this broken way of thinking, and also to hunker down and just pray for someone when the need becomes apparent instead of hoping that I'll remember later.
Thanks, Abby.
We all need to pray more.

This reminds me of what John used to say when I would mention that we must pray: Oh dear, it’s come to THAT! It would make me laugh every time. It is a high privilege to pray. I am so glad that we can. And I count it high blessing when a dear friend prays for me.

Oh for the power of prayer - yes, we need to be in a constant attitude of prayer, and be prepared to pray when and where ever prompted... I keep telling myself to do this!! Thank you for the the reminder of the power of prayer, dear Abby
