Four Presents You Can Give: Prayer
 

Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Marianne Adlard, a bedridden girl in 1860s London, read about the success of evangelist D. L. Moody and longed for his ministry to touch her own local congregation. She prayed, “O Lord, send this man to our church.” In 1870, Moody was indeed invited to speak at Marianne’s church; but that morning there was no response to his message. Marianne prayed earnestly that afternoon. In the evening Moody asked if anyone wanted to give their lives to Christ. A flood of people rose to their feet. Moody was so surprised he had them sit down while he clarified his invitation. Still they stood. In a ten-day period, four hundred people professed faith in Christ.


Like Marianne, Epaphras wrestled in prayer for the church he loved, asking God to work among the people. He believed his greatest ministry to others was in prayer.


When we present the needs of others in prayer to God, we’re exercising Throne Power—the power of coming to the Throne of Grace so another soul can receive mercy and grace to help in time of need. Only heaven knows the power of such a ministry.


Our prayers should be insistent. There comes a time, in spite of our soft, modern ways… when we must wrestle…. The Bible recognizes such a thing as storming heaven.

In 1991 a huge deposit of natural diamonds was found at a location in a remote corner of Canada's Northwest Territory, about 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle. By 1998, the EKATI mine was operational and it was estimated that just one pit would yield an astonishing number of diamonds, seven or eight million carats. In fact, from 1998 through 2009, 40 million carats were produced from the mine's six open pits.
