No matter how bad things look, you can always, always still pray about it. Prayer is a powerful weapon – once used and you see the positive result you will always make it your number one choice. Being a praying woman doesn’t mean I don’t have bad days…but, when those bad days come, I know what my option/choice will always be. When you know the effective working power of prayer, it makes you always want to go right into prayer.
March 26, 2014 I was faced with a very painful situation that caused me a great measure of grief. One of my girls had left home without saying goodbye. As a Mom, this must have been the most painful experience I ever had to endure. The worst feeling for any mother is to know you did the best you could and it still wasn’t good enough. All that was left for me to do was to call on God and trust Him to take care of her while she was away from the safety of her home and family. My tears were my meat day and night. I was completely devastated and destroyed beyond words. After the first four months of praying and crying – day and night, my tears began to take a physical toll on me. I felt incredibly weak in my body. I remember sitting up on my bed early one morning praying to God telling Him that I needed to stop crying right away because I was going to get sick. It was one of those desperate prayers that I had prayed numerous times before, and saw God miraculously turn things completely around for my good. I kid you not – that moment I prayed, I immediately felt strength coming into my body and my tears stopped flowing. Approximately one month to the date, I had my first unsolicited contact with my daughter and everything turned right around bringing healing to the entire family and extended family.
Whenever you decide to get on your knees and fight like a man, God always comes through for you. God knows when you have no other options. God will move Heaven and Earth to keep His promises.
If it had not been the Lord on my side, I don’t know where I or my daughter would have been. Whatever you are facing today …you can pray your way out. I tried it and it works.
My mess became my message – today, she’s happily married and raising a beautiful family. My scars became my stars because now I can brag about God’s continued and ongoing faithfulness in my life. In my crisis, I proved that Christ is always on my side. My test became my testimony – I can speak about my pain without feeling the pain. No weapon formed against a praying person can prosper.
Let the devil know whatever he tries, it’s not going to work because you don’t mind waiting on the Lord.
Prayer Works – the power of a praying mother. The power of a praying spouse. The power of a praying grandparent. Prayer works !!!
