I have 3 students that have gone from being a major pain to a total joy this year - as a direct result of prayer.  I'm talking, over night.  Literally.  Huge issue Monday...prayer Monday night and Tuesday morning... problem eliminated.  Okay okay I admit - not eliminated entirely, but the transformation has been so large with each of these students that it feels as if each problem just disappeared entirely.  The minute traces of negativity that are left seem hardly worth the energy to address.

Prayer works. 

Matthew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

John 14:13-14 I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it

Romans 8:26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

Phillipians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Colossions 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

James 1:7 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;

As I grow closer to God, I am more convinced than ever that there is nothing as powerful as prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.  People need our prayer - our neighbors, our families, our friends, our coworkers, our country's leaders.  So, Who or what have you prayed for lately?  What have the results been? 

Believing in the power of prayer,
