Praying from the heart, even for a second, sending a request to our Heavenly Father, brings tremendous dynamic results according to James 5:16. Praying what God wants for our lives is what I call ‘transforming prayer’ or ‘praying strategically’. It will always be birthed by God from deep within your heart.
Yet the state of our hearts can change radically in a moment, from faith to fear. Something unexpectedly confronts us maybe that brings new circumstances for us to deal with, that may even achieve a devastating blow to us. In a moment we are in fear and confusion, without focus, with no faith. This new challenge we face may and indeed can, change the way we think, feel, or see life, and cause us to ask the questions. What should we do? Where do we run to? To whom do we turn to for wisdom and counsel?
For me the answer to these questions has been God and His Word for many years now. God has counselled me through His Word hundreds of times, and always His wisdom has come, and liberally. God’s Word has given me tremendous peace, direction and solutions have always come to answer difficulties that I have faced, even under the greatest of pressures.
