Growing Stronger Through Prayer – Daily Devotion


DEALING WITH CHRONIC PAIN
WEARS ME OUT! MY PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS
SOMETIMES MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I’M IN PRISON. I OFTEN FEEL ISOLATED, DISCOURAGED, AND FORGOTTEN. MOVING FROM CALIFORNIA
TO WISCONSIN INTENSIFIED THOSE FEELINGS. SO I STARTED A SUPPORT
GROUP – MY PRAYING PEEPS. THESE PEOPLE HAVE COMMITTED TO
PRAY FOR ME CONSISTENTLY, AS I TRUST GOD THROUGH
MY HEALING JOURNEY AND SERVE HIM FROM WHEREVER
HE HAS ME PLANTED. WHEN I FEEL LIKE GIVING UP, IT HELPS TO KNOW
THEY’RE PRAYING FOR ME. AND I FEEL STRONGER
WHEN I PRAY FOR THEM. IN THE BOOK OF ACTS, WE READ HOW GOD LED THE
DISCIPLES TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL. THE CHURCH GREW RAPIDLY AND PETER BEGAN PREACHING
TO THE GENTILES, GOD’S CHOSEN WHO WERE
NOT OF JEWISH DESCENT. SOME JEWS REJECTED PETER,
BUT HE PERSEVERED. THE CHURCH EXPANDED. BUT EVENTUALLY,
KING HEROD IMPRISONED PETER. THROUGH HIS WILD JOURNEY,
PETER TRUSTED GOD. HE KNEW OTHERS WERE PRAYING FERVENTLY ON HIS BEHALF. THE NIGHT BEFORE HEROD WAS
GOING TO BRING PETER TO TRIAL, GOD ORCHESTRATED
A MIRACULOUS JAILBREAK. PETER RUSHED TO MARY’S HOUSE WHERE, AS ACTS 12:12 STATES, “MANY PEOPLE HAD GATHERED
AND WERE PRAYING.” THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE
MARY’S REPORT THAT PETER HAD BEEN
FREED AT FIRST. BUT PETER’S EXPERIENCE CONFIRMED THAT GOD HEARS AND
ANSWERS PRAYER. GOD USES THE PRAYERS OF
HIS PEOPLE AS STRONG PILLARS THAT CAN HOLD US UP
WHEN WE’RE WEARY AND WEAK. SO, WHEN YOU THINK
THE SITUATION FEELS IMPOSSIBLE, CALL OUT TO HIM!
