Our Prayers Release God’s Providence

 

Prayer Is Not A Fruitless Exercise That God Gave Us To Perform In Order To Determine If We’re Faithful. Prayer Is The Vehicle That Releases God To Move On The Earth.

 

“Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness.”

Martin Luther

 

“One of the great wonders of Christianity is that you were born into your times, to set your times aright.” - John Eldredge

Matthew 16:19 “And that’s not all. You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom, keys to open any and every door: no more barriers between heaven and earth, earth and heaven. A yes on earth is yes in heaven. A no on earth is no in heaven.”
