“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear” Isaiah 65:24

The story of every great Christian achievement is the history of answered prayer. Christians who know how to pray are the richest gifts earth can offer heaven. Prayer honors God and dishonors self. It is man’s plea of weakness, ignorance, want, a plea which heavens cannot disregard. The potency of prayer hath subdued the strength of fire; it had bridled the rage of lions; extinguished wars, expelled demons, bust the chains of death, rescued cities from destruction, stayed the sun in its course, and arrested the progress of the thunderbolt. Paul calls it a striving, an agony. With Jacob it is wrestling. Elijah prayed and God answered him by fire. Hannah’s prayer was observed by Eli as “spiritual drunkenness”! It is the battlefield of the Church, its citadel, the scene of heroic and unearthly conflicts. If we can go on our knees and cry to the God of heavens and earth; then we can be reassured of overcoming any situation confronting us in life. The prayer that attracts divine attention is not a prayer from the lips but a prayer from the heart. Prayer is not the fruit of natural talents; it is the product of faith, of holiness, and of deeply spiritual character. This is the month of your “Divine Attention” when heaven is ready to focus her attention to that your particular need and give you your heart desires. The goal of prayer is the ear of God; and God will hear every one of your cries in the busy hour of the daytime and in the lonely watches of night in Jesus name.
