Our first sermon this year was about Prayer. Our Pastor talked about how being in prayer can sometimes change things or at the least, change our perception of things.
His example was regarding the Constitution. He is a history lover so that's probably how he came across that little example. So, with all of that out, on to the story.
It seems when all the leaders got together to write the constitution, they couldn't all seem to agree on exactly what they should go into the Constitution, and one person made the suggestion that they pray about it. As a group.
They didn't agree on that either so they didn't do it, as a group that is. But the one who asked them to pray, (sorry, I don't remember his name) he did pray. He took his problems to the Lord, and he did see an improvement, although it may have been a small improvement. He saw it, and he knew it was because he prayed.
The whole point was to let us know how important Prayer is in our lives. We should pray for our Nation, our Government, our friends and our enemies. And more important than that is how prayer strengthens us. It's how we communicate with God.
Today our hearts ache for the people in Haiti and what they are going through. I cannot imagine what they must be going through. And while we are so far away, one thing we can do is pray.
Pray for the people of Haiti to know that there is a God who loves them.
I know someone who's father is very ill, and I pray for him and his family.
We all need to be in Prayer, and it won't cost anything except a few minutes of your time. So if there is a situation that you just seems so overwhelming you don't know what you can do, just remember that anyone can pray.
