That very special day is here again. Our worldwide day of prayer. As the sun makes its sweep around the globe, fellow staff and volunteers in every nation on earth gather at the foot of the throne to sing praises and to ask God to intervene so that all might come to know his love. Kay and I will soon join with our 25,000 staff worldwide in an entire day of prayer. I always welcome these days, which we have twice each year. These days are very unique.
I recently listened to this short excerpt from John Piper:
God, the sovereign ruler of the universe, has ordained that prayers cause things to happen that would not happen if we do not pray. When James 4:2 says ‘you do not have because you do not ask’, it doesn’t mean ‘you would have anyway even if you did not ask because I’ve got a plan’.
Kay and I are accepting the privilege God is offering to us to focus today on helping cause things to happen that would not happen if we do not pray.
