LIFELINE TO HEALTH & HEALING
In the book, Steps to Christ are found these often repeated words:
"Why should the sons and daughters of God be reluctant to pray, when prayer is the key in the hand of faith to unlock heaven's storehouse, where are treasured the boundless resources of Omnipotence [God's almighty power]?" (pp. 94-95)
Prayer is the source of power in battling temptation, in following God's will and in saving souls. But it is also our greatest strength for our day to day struggles. When we pray, a great burden is lifted off our shoulders because we know that God is stronger than any stress that bombards us. When we're hurting or confused, the devil may tempt us to think that no one understands or cares what we're going through. There is no one we can talk to. But Jesus is near and cares about anything that touches us. And when we believe that, we will have a tremendous hope that will carry us through every trial and temptation. It will give us strength to carry on.
Prayer Power is one of the greatest blessings we have in managing stress or any other pain in our lives. It's an essential part of healing when we've lost a loved one or suffered any kind of loss. The Bible assures us that God will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). In every affliction, He is with us, just as He was with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace (Daniel 3:20-35). And science is confirming that God's Word is true. People who believe in the power of prayer have a strength to tap into that others do not. It gives them strength to hold on, comfort and peace in their loss, and healing for broken lives. Prayer is truly our lifeline to heaven.
