“I guess all we can do is pray about it.”
I’ve been guilty of saying that like it was the last option available with a “hope it works” kind of attitude behind it.
It’s easy to fall into the thought that whatever God wants to happen will happen; so what is the point of praying?
Even in His sovereignty, God still invites us to participate in what He is doing on the Earth. One of these ways is through prayer.
We read about men like Abraham and Moses using prayer to intercede on behalf of others. God listened. Esther fasted and prayed before she went before the king, and God gave her favor. Jesus prayed and the dead were raised to life.
James 5:17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth.
So, for my friends and family in Houston and other parts of South Texas, we stand with you. Praying as Elijah did. We pray protection over your families and your homes. We pray for peace in the midst of the storm. We pray that the rains would cease. ~Anu
