Storming The Heavens In Prayer
















This view is beheld each time the members of Rileyville Baptist Church attend services. Astounding beauty and a vast reminder of GOD's power and strength encourage each of us. I can not see this view from where I live and likely the view out your window is not as magnificent, but let us remember HE is faithful to see us through the difficult times in our lives.

As my prayer list grows and nearly every friend and family member struggles with something, I am reminded the battle belongs to HIM who loves us most. We are to lay it all at HIS feet and leave it there! If you are like me, I often pick those requests back up and try to fix them or I senselessly worry about them. Let us stand together, binding our hearts in agreement to leave each and every need at HIS feet.

Storming the heavens in prayer,

Andrea

Andrea:
A dear Christian sainte told a group of us that we are the most teachable when we are in the valley.
My prayer list,like yours, grows each day. All we can do is lift the people and their needs to Jesus and allow Him to intercede.

I was actually at your blog earlier this morning at "Mountaintop Blessings in the Valley" post. I had no words to add.

I, too, am praying for many. Thank God, He never tires of our requests and loves to hear our praises! He IS powerful, compassionate, and full of mercy & grace to help us in our time of need!

I ♥ the view members of Rileyville Baptist Church have. (D'ya suppose they take it for granted?)

I lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: whence shall my help come? My help cometh from Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth.

Toyin O. said...

Amen. Yes, the battle belongs to him and he has never lost a battle:)

Amen. We submit all to Him, as we speak the word only in every circumstance. We believe. We pray for God's help for all people and we thank Him.

Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ - Luke 10:9

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is Yours, O Lord, and this is Your kingdom. We adore You as the one who is over all things. - 1 Chronicles 29:11
