“Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.” Matthew 15:28
You can touch God with your prayers. In our Bible reading for today. Bartimaeus cried until Jesus stood still. Jesus was touched by Bartimaeus’ persistent calls. There are gentlemanly prayers – which people pray softly, sophisticatedly, with big grammar and careful diction. There are also prayers that can touch God – usually persistent in nature. In Luke 18:1-8, Jesus gave an example of a prayer that would definitely touch God. In fact, He said the prayer would touch even a wicked fellow, not to mention God. Some people pray for a while and stop when they haven’t gotten a miracle. Why are you stopping? Do you have another option apart from God? I have had the privilege of going to see some Presidents and when you get there you cannot be in a hurry. You get there before the time of appointment that was given to you, yet you may have to wait for some time before you get to see the President. On some occasions, it is the President who wanted to see me, yet l had to wait. How can you then go before the President of Presidents and say because He hasn’t attended to your request that you want to leave? If you leave, who will be affected? God remains God whether you pray or not, but you are nothing without Him. When you tarry in the place of prayer, He is touched and then gives you whatever you want. Even the woman with her daughter in Matthew 15:22-28, didn’t stop until Jesus answered her, It will show in how long you pray. Many people are still struggling with their problems because they stopped praying too early. Let that not be your story.
BIBLE READING: Mark 10:46-52
PRAYER: Oh Lord God, give me the power for breakthrough prayers. Help me to pray persistently.
