Journaling Lent: Day 15, The Power of Prayer

For the next 40 days I am reading "He Reads Truth: Lent 2016" as a daily devotional. While I am preparing for the celebration of Easter I have decided to journal my thoughts and share them. If they seem scattered or disconnected it is because these words are my immediate response to each daily reading. To find each day's reading click here: He Reads Truth: Lent.

Prayer works. It can be a thought or whisper to the Father or hours of weeping and intercession on your knees before the Lord. Daniel prayed fervently before God alone. The apostles met together and gathered the people collectively and sought God.

There is no formula that makes God answer our prayers. Believe His promises, walk in obedience, pray to Him, and listen for His voice. It may be a while before He answers your prayer, and it may not look like the answer you want - but take heart He loves you and He is faithful.
