This came in from a friend fo mine this morning. This is very encouraging especially for our brothers and sisters who are out of work or just struggling. Also, you can always expect a strong message from Charles Spurgeon. Rich
His Royal Treasury
The Prayer Meeting is not a farce, waste of time, or mere pious amusement. Some in these times think so, but such shall be lightly esteemed. Surely they know not the Omnipotence that lies in the pleas of God’s people! The Lord has taken the keys of His royal treasury and put them into the hands of faith. He has taken His sword from the scabbard and given it into the hands of the man mighty in prayer. He seems at times to have placed His sovereign scepter in the hands of prayer. What a victory would come to two who joined in the same wrestling! “One of you shall chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight.” (C. H. SPURGEON,)
Matthew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Prayer changes things -- and people -- and attitudes, thoughts and actions. God wants us to trust Him to do His best for us. Knowing that many are praying with us and for us gives a level of comfort and assurance that is hard to describe. And it makes it a lot easier to meet each day knowing that God is with us in all things.
Pray for our nation
Pray for those who are unemployed and need jobs, for those who have lost their homes and need housing, for those whose business are suffering because of the economic downturn, asking that we, as a nation, will return to God, seeking His wisdom and will.
In God we trust: “If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness.
One last thought: When you are looking at someone you love, your pupils dilate, and they do the same when you are looking at someone you hate.
