Ladies prayer . . .

The ladies from our church meet every Monday night for a time of group prayer. This is not a new idea or anything that may seem significant at all.

But IT is. We hadn't met since the Monday before Christmas. We sat and chatted, gave our praises and made our requests for almost two hours. Then we bombarded the Throne of Grace on behalf of our group.

The significance of this is that Jesus is interested and attends these meetings. It is not earthingshaking every week but we have seen the Hand of God at work. A list has been kept and we have seen lives touched and situations changed as a result of diligent prayer.

A subset of our group stayed later at the home of our host and began talking about the burdens in our spirits. That is SIGNIFICANT. We, as God's people, need to realize that burdens need to be verbalized so that they can be made reality. WE HAVE NOT BECAUSE WE ASK NOT.

God's Word is a call to action. It is not for the timid. It requires us to get outside ourselves (comfort zone!). We forget that when we are weak, we will be made strong. We may not feel equipped (sigmificant) but if it is His Will, He will equip us.

We just need to take that leap. Come and join us as we endeavor to do His Will.
