Welcome to School of Prayer Saturday. I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day Weekend. This post will be short and sweet.
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do no know.” The phrase might things actually means “things that are hidden, inaccessible, things that are fenced in.” Prayer penetrates barriers. It pierces hearts. It operates from the inside out. It knows no off-limits. The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, and prayer massages it! Prayer knows no limited jurisdiction.

“The unbeliever has many defenses against our evangelistic efforts. He can refuse to attend church. If he does show up, he can shift into neutral and count the cracks in the ceiling. You can visit his home, but he doesn’t have to let you in. Hand him a tract on the street, and he an throw it away. Get on TV, and he can switch channels. Call him on the phone, and he can hang up. But he cannot prevent the Lord Jesus from knocking at the door of his heart in response to our intercession. People we cannot reach any other way can be reached by way of the throne of grace”.
