Are You in the Prayer Business?
By George and Carolyn Bridges
But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all; Matthew 12:15 (King James Version)
People who are in business expect to make a profit. They put time, money and energy into their business. They get the experts in specified areas to advise them. They go after the best people to hire for specific jobs. Why? They intend to make a tremendous profit.
So we should be about the business of prayer. Prayer is not something that we do as a religious tradition because it is “the thing to do” in crisis. We don’t speak to God hopelessly and aimlessly about intervening in a situation. No! We are to approach prayer with the attitude of receiving results.
The Bible is not just a storybook. It is not a good history book. The Holy Bible is God speaking to YOU, imparting His will to you. He is letting you know what His will is concerning your situation. Therefore, it is up to you to search the Scriptures and find your answer.
Be about the business of prayer and walk in victory every time in Jesus’ Name! To God be all the glory. It is good to be alive and well!!!
