Watch and Pray

This simple blog is devoted to the greatest privilege that man has ever been given; PRAYER.

The Kingdom Partnership of Prayer

Prayer makes a way for God to act sovereignly on earth. Jesus said to pray, “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10).

God has chosen to work through people, not around them. Therefore, He also says, “Truly I say to you, whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matt 18:18). The obvious inference is that God has limited some of His activities on the earth and will respond only to the prayers of His children.

Heaven waits for those of us on earth to pray for things to happen. E. Stanley Jones once said, “We align ourselves with the purpose and power of God and He is able to do things through us that He could not do otherwise.” God seeks for a person, an intercessor, to plead for His perfect will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (see Isa. 43.26; Jer. 1:12).
