Connections! Devotional Today

       Prayer is so important, and yet it seems most people pray only when they have a great need they can't handle themselves.  The world is in that situation right now.  No one knows how to solve the problems before us, but how many are willing to come aside to pray about it?  We get so caught up in our daily life we forget that we have a responsibility to seek solutions for the greater good of the world.  God says one can put a thousand to flight, but two can put ten thousand.  There is much power generated when God's people come together in unity of purpose--to worship Him and to pray for His Will to be done on earth.  Won't you find a group and begin to pray?

     The devil has decimated and all but devastated the prayer life of Christians and of their homes and of their churches. Many churches still don’t have prayer meetings. And where they do, they usually are the weakest, most anemic of all the many meetings.
     But the Lord is changing this. Thank the Lord for the many new movements of prayer. We are on our way back to the Upper Room, back to the real, normal pattern of the Spirit-filled life for every Christian and for every church.
     The Upper Room is God’s own master plan to bring revival. That plan has not changed; it is still God’s plan today. Will you go to the Upper Room?
