The Gift of Prayer


It's the greatest gift to give when you are at a loss for what to give. It's always needed, always welcomed, and is better than any human word given. Prayer, when given on behalf of others, is placed in the hands of the Most Holy God, the Creator and Ruler; the healer, comforter, protector, and Sovereign God. He will be able to give and do far more than any human word, or gift ever could.

"When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God."  Ephesians 3:14-19
