John 15:16
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

I was thinking about prayer the other day. To me, prayer is the most mysterious and auspicious privilege we have as Christians. How it is that my humble words can move the hand of Almighty Creator, I’ll never fully grasp, yet they can. I believe it has something to do with God’s love. God is love and God loves to commune with his beloved. This happens in prayer.

As I pondered prayer I imagined prayer was like the great aqueducts that the Roman constructed to bring water from lakes and reservoirs into their cities. Now, rain falls where it chooses, so the rain could provide drinking water for Roman cities by falling directly on the city. Yet, the Romans also built aqueducts to carefully channel water into the cities to provide a constant supply for their residents. Just the same, God in his sovereignty, can and does meet our needs and guide our steps by his own will and initiative, like rain falling on the Roman cities. However, in his love, he has opened the way for you and me to be canals of his power through personal deliberate prayer, like the Roman aqueducts supplying the cities of their empire with water.

The prayer of a righteous man is powerful, and in Christ, we are righteous. And no good thing will he withhold from those who walk uprightly. Our God will meet all our needs according to his rich resources in Jesus. He is faithful, and his love is enduring. He will never let you down; he is with you always. In his great sovereignty and grace, God has chosen to give you the most mysterious and auspicious privilege of prayer. Use it!

God-tracking is being a canal for his power, through prayer

1 John 4:8
Romans 5:8
John 3:16
James 5:16
Psalm 84:11
Philippians 4:19


Dear Lord, help me to build my prayer life to please you and glorify your name

“Dear Lord, thank you for the privilege of prayer. Thank you that, in your love, you have seen fit to give me the honour of being able to commune with you and move your hand through prayer. Thank you that my prayer is like a canal, bringing the sustenance of your touch to those around me. Help me to wisely pray. Help me to fill my mind with your Word so that I will always pray according to your will. Help me to be diligent in prayer and to walk in faith that you will answer every prayer I utter. Dear Lord, help me to build my prayer life to please you and glorify your name. Amen.”
