There is a delicate web that crisscrosses its way across this land. It’s like a huge connect-the-dots pattern, and it happens every Wednesday evening. People gather together in their churches to pray and the wind of God’s grace gently touches the web, which is often laced with the tears of God’s most precious saints – ordinary people who take time out of their busy schedules to meet together and storm the throne of God.
Were you a part of this beautiful massive web tonight, or did you miss it? I mention it because we were not at our own church tonight, and my mind kept drifting back there – to my usual part of the web, knowing that even in our absence, prayers were faithfully being lifted to the God of the heavens. What a joy to pray with believers at one church and connect with others who were all doing the same thing!
And what is the reason for this great web? Is it even necessary, or should it go the way of so many other strands of our faith? Does America need prayer? Do our churches need prayer? Do you and I need prayer? Do you and I need to pray? If we don’t…who will? “And Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.” –Cowper The question is, will you do it?
“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.” Rev. 5:8
