Be Encouraged! Our Prayers

Can "Change History"!


"How could one have chased a thousand,
and two have put ten thousand to flight"
(Deut 32:30




We believe our Prayers can "Change History"! In fact, whether we are Praying in large groups, small groups or privately, God will hear our Prayers and Act. We must have EXPECTATION.

Allow the Lord to encourage you in this regard:


He will "save by many or by few." (I Sam 14:6)

In fact, "nothing can hinder" Him! NOTHING! NOTHING!

This passage comes from the story of Jonathan and his armor bearer who singlehandedly scattered and destroyed God's enemies.

As Jonathan and his armor bearer stepped out, the Lord's Power was so incredible that there was great trembling amongst their enemies as well as an earthquake.

Matthew Henry has some very instructive comments which should encourage our band of Pray-ers:

· "It is an invisible power that sets bounds to the malice of the church's enemies…"

· "There is no restraint in the Lord, no limitation to the holy One of Israel, but it is easy for Him to save by many or by few."

· "Let this passage strengthen the weak and encourage the timid; may we plead with God to enforce our heart cries and silence our doubts; It is nothing with God to help, whether with many or with those that have no power. (2 Chron 14:11)"

· "Who knows? He can use us for His Glory. It may be the Lord will work for us, work with us, work a Sign or Miracle for us."

· "We have reason to think that Jonathan felt a Divine impulse and impression, setting him upon this bold adventure…"

· "Perhaps he had an actual regard to that Word of Joshua (Josh 23:10), One man of you shall chase a thousand, borrowed from Moses (Deut 32:30)."

So, we must have Faith that God gave us stories like these to encourage our Faith and Prayers. It seems to be unimportant to the Lord whether we have massive numbers Praying or just a few. What seems to matter is our FAITH, Continuous and Dedicated PRAYER and EXPECTATION that our petitions will "Change History".

Again, please join as together we CRY OUT for GOD's INTERVENTION!

"In my distress I called to the LORD,
and He answered me."
(Psalm 120:1)
