Prayer seems to be a given when it comes to spiritual leadership. We know about prayer. We study about prayer. We talk about prayer. We teach about prayer.
However, do we believe in the power of prayer?
Most people can attest to the number of times God answered prayers in powerful ways. We have seen Him answer in unexpected ways that went beyond our request.
We are thankful for the avenue of prayer and we desire the kind of faith that knows God will continue to answer our requests.
Perhaps the struggle we have deals with the temptation to doubt when various trials arise and challenge our faith in God’s power to answer…yet again.
When it comes to prayer, there is no magic formula, special words, proper position, or time of the day that makes a difference.
For Christians, prayer is about the simplicity of a humble heart that trusts God to answer in His time, in His ways, and in our best interest.
We may not always understand, but to pray without ceasing is the foundation to powerful leadership.
