The Same Power

The same power that conquered the grave lives in me.  It lives in you. While I served as a youth pastor years ago I was once asked by a member of the youth group why I prayed.  On the surface it seems like a strange question.  It isn’t though.  Not at all.  It was a great question.  It was clear, direct and sincere. My answer was just as clear, direct and sincere.  I expect God to answer and even deliver a miracle if needed. My only surprise was that this youth member grew up in the church.  While she attended our youth group meetings she had a church home that she and her family attended .

When we pray we should do so with expectation. Believing God is on our side and will move on our behalf.  I say this because it’s true.  It doesn’t mean that life isn’t hard.  We will face trials just as Christ did.  Not every prayer is answered with a miracle, but pray every prayer with the expectation that God is listening and is ready to help us in our time of need and suffering.

Matthew 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
