PRAYER IS A LIFESAVER

BIBLE THOUGHT: “THEREFORE CONFESS YOUR SINS TO EACH OTHER AND PRAY FOR EACH OTHER SO THAT YOU MAY BE HEALED. THE PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN IS POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE” (JAMES 5:16, NASB)

READ 1 SAMUEL 12:16-25 for a better application of the lesson.

I HEARD a story about a bald eagle soaring over a lake. The eagle sent his talons deep into the lake for a fish, but his catch was far too heavy! The eagle began to sink when two other eagles appeared. Each one went under one of the wings of their comrade and carried him to safety. What a beautiful picture of prayer.

I like to think that prayers build walls of love around those prayed for. The walls are built with sincere concern, promoting healing and well being in Christ.

Make a wall of love and prayers for someone today. You may not know the results of your prayers, but God knows. You can be strong, lifting wings for a friend in need.

Sing “Pray All the Time

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for answering our prayers. We worship, adore and glorify You in every way. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
