Praying Together

The prayer meeting downtown Asheville has sparked a lot of interest in the subject of prayer.
Some have spoken of a prayer revival. That is the burden to pray again or to pray more. Others have confessed, “I never have prayed that much. I know I’m saved, I love Jesus, but I’m not a person of prayer.”
As a pastor, I know that God has burdened me, and circumstances have forced me to pray more each day. Our families, our church, and our community deserve the faithful prayer of the people that have been changed by the power of God.
James 5:16 starts with that prayer of confession, “Confess your faults.” We know there is none righteous, no not one! Our prayer to God is “that we need Him.” That same verse declares,
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
The word “effectual” is the Greek word ENERGEO. It means that the prayer birthed in the “Just man” is by divine energy! A God powered prayer!
You see the connection? Not my will, but thy will be done! Not my time, but God’s time. Galatians 4:4 shows, not my way, but God you have your way, your divine purpose for your glory!
It is God’s prayer by the Holy Spirit through us; the instruments of His plan and purpose!
No wonder the disciples said to Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray!”
