Recently, I felt impressed to begin regular telephone prayers with Elaine in between personal visits. Tonight, Connie, Elaine and I joined together to pray. With increasing challenges facing my sister and her husband, I sensed that we must strengthen our prayer communion together. Tonight we began our petitions in praise to the Father for all the blessings He has bestowed upon us. God truly inhabits the praises of His people. His presence certainly enhanced our prayer time tonight.
Tomorrow night at our regular in-home prayer group, we plan to have Elaine on speaker phone for the body of Christ to lift her up as well. We must never underestimate the power of prayer especially in battling spiritual warfare. The demons shudder in the presence of God, and prayer draws us closer to the Father.
If you are in great peril and distress, rev up both personal and corporate prayer times. Look expectantly for the hand of God to move in new ways as you commune together in prayer. The experience certainly has been spiritually refreshing for us.
