Prayers

I saw this on our pastor Matt Chandler's Twitter updates and it struck something within me today. Maybe it's because I can't stop thinking about the devastation that has ravaged a poor, helpless Nation over the past 24 hours? Maybe it's because I often find myself feeling helpless to my mom's disease? Or maybe it's something the Lord hasn't revealed to me yet. All I know is that when I feel helpless, and like I can't do anything, I want prayer to be my impulse. And more than that, I want to have faith like a child that my prayers are powerful and effective because they are part of His providential plan.

"Prayers are powerful and effective not because they alter God's providential plan but because they are a part of it." - Jeremy Treat

Is your Pastor a partner with Pastor Mark Driscoll and the series Vintage Jesus?
