I have mentioned in earlier blogs that Frank and I have committed to PRAYING TOGETHER every night over our children, our staff/church members and our city. Spurgeon says “Our praying is the shadow of God’s giving. When he is about to bestow a blessing he first of all works in us earnest prayer for it.” In other words, God moves us to pray; we pray. I thank God for the prayers of the saints through the years over us and our family! About a year ago our church decided to sponsor a baby from SHANGHAI HEALING HOME. We were even able to name him -ANDREW MARK. Even our school got in on the action and supported him both financially and prayerfully. Just recently I received an email of a picture with Andrew Mark and his precious adoptive family. God moved through so many to touch this special child!
There is a high duty and privilege. Can you pray, my brother, my sister? If you know how to pray, you can move heaven and earth. If you pray, then you can set almighty forces in operation. Spurgeon goes onto say, “You can suffer no need, for everlasting supplies await the hand of prayer: “Ask, and it shall be given you.” You cannot miss your way, for you shall be guided in answer to prayer. You shall hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it.” Believe in God, and you will prevail with God. Believe in his promise, and plead it. Believe in his Spirit, and pray by his help. Believe in Jesus, who makes intercession; for through him you may come boldly to the throne of grace. Faith alone can confirm feeble knees. “According to your faith be it unto you.” To pray without faith is formality; nay, it is vanity. To be weak in prayer is a disease which will bring on many other maladies. Seek faith to become Masters of the Art of prayer. I would rather be Master of the Art of prayer than M.A. of both universities. He who knows how to pray has his hand on a leverage which moves the universe. But there is no praying without believing. If thou believest not, thou mayest be heard – it is more than I can promise thee; but if thou believest, thou shalt be heard, for God refuses no believing prayer. To refuse to keep his own promise when it is pleaded would be to falsify his word, and change his character; and neither of these things can ever be. Have thou strong confidence: “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Jesus said, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Believe in prayer, and you will pray believing.
He is such a faithful God!


  1. Good Morning, Amen… 🙂 Have an awesome day in our LORD, with Love.
    I also pray for all Pastors, staff members/ all locations of our Churchs/events, city and family daily.
    Great blog, Thank You, LORD.. Keep on Praying:) Hallelujah.

  2. Hallelujah, Amen!!! There Is A Saying: “Prayer Is The Key In The Hand Of Faith That Unlocks Heaven’s Storehouse.” Sounds Like “Moving The Universe,” To Me. Thank You Lord, That We Can Come Boldly To Your Throne With Our Petition(s) Of Faith And Prayer, Amen.

  3. “Jesus Is On The Main Line, Call Him Up And Tell Him What You Want.” That’s Just How My ForeParents Would Put It, And It Is Still True Today!!! Amen, Amen, Thank You Lord, Amen.
