Hello and welcome to World Hope! As we gather today my heart is filled with anticipation and expectation for the Lord to work in our lives to fulfill His purposes and plans for each of us. I pray that you see His touch and experience His presence in your life as we worship, pray and fellowship.
James reminds us that our prayers are effective, that much is accomplished as we pray, James 5:16. Often as I pray I question the effectiveness of my prayer as I do not always see the impact that I desire. Many times God is at work in ways that are not visible to me. Those are the times that I need to continue to pray and stand on God’s promise that my prayers are making an impact.
There are times that we feel overwhelmed by the events of life, the load that we carry, the concerns that we have for others or the needs that are present in our lives. Keep praying! God is at work, whether you see it or not, He is working to fulfill His purposes and His plans in our lives, the lives of those we love and the world around us. May we continue to stand strong in prayer and stand firm on God’s promises.
Be blessed as you continue to pray and believe!
