I read this on DaySpring Devotions today and wanted to share it with you. It is such a good reminder of the POWER in our prayers!

No ocean can hold it back.
No river can overtake it.
No whirlwind can go faster.
No army can defeat it.
No law can stop it.
No distance can slow it.
No disease can cripple it.
No force on earth is more powerful or effective than the power of prayer. - Linn Carlson, DaySpring writer

The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
James 5:16 NRSV

May 6 is the 59th Annual Observance of the National Day of Prayer. Join with millions of people around the world in prayer for America. We invite you to be part of interceding for our nation, leaders, communities and families. One prayer, one heart at a time, we can change our nation!

The LORD is Good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him... Nahum 1:7 NIV


I am hoping that we join together ~ today and every day ~ in praying for our nation!

I am also reminded today in the power behind our prayers for the desires of our hearts. GOD WANTS TO BLESS US ABUNDANTLY! Are we really letting ourselves listen to those deep desires of our hearts? God placed them there. He WANTS us to acknowledge those deep desires. He WANTS to bless us with answers to those prayers.

However, it is up to each one of us to release His holy power to answer them. We release that power by praying. C'mon.......bind up the enemy by no longer walking in fear of your desires! Release God's divine power by recognizing your personal desires and by asking God to fulfill them! In His way. In His timing. We shouldn't just "sit back and watch God"........we need to seek Him and ASK Him to answer!

In the hustle and bustle of life,it is easy to just assume that God knows what we want. What we need. Well, He does know. But He wants us to come to Him with those wants and needs. May this national day of prayer remind us to pray for our nation, as well as for our own personal desires ~ according to His will. He is a big God and He cares about our nation as well as each one of us!

Have a BLESSED day!
