WHEN GOD’S PEOPLE PRAY: “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we asked of Him.” (1 John 5:14-15) It is a wonderful thing to have a friend praying for you! It is a wonderful thing to have a husband or wife praying for you! It is a wonderful thing to have a parent praying for you! It is a wonderful thing to have a son or daughter praying for their mom and dad! It is a wonderful thing to know that someone is praying for you! “We do not value the power and efficacy of prayer as we should. Prayer and faith will do what no power on earth can accomplish.” (Ministry of Healing, p. 509) WE WILL MEET AGAIN FOR PRAYER MEETING AFTER THE HOLIDAYS AND WEEK OF PRAYER.
