I was up early to clear my driveway & sidewalk of snow before heading off to the gym. It was snowing so lightly I figured I was done with it for the day. By the time I got back an hour or so later, my paved surfaces looked just like everyone else’s: covered in snow. The only evidence that I’d shoveled were the little piles of snow at the corners of my property. The flakes were so small, it looked more like flurries than a shower, yet — oh, how they accumulated in a short amount of time!
Prayer can work like that. The words don’t seem very profound, you almost feel useless mentioning the same request again but the Bible says the Lord collects our prayers in golden bowls. Our prayers have an accumulative & lasting affect!
One form of prayer not to be neglected is praying in other tongues as the Spirit directs us. Like all prayer, we may not see the results right away, but the Bible tells us that those prayers are powerful & effective. Keep praying both with your mind & with your spirit.
