There are things in this world that may grab your attention,
But give greater thought to what Jesus did mention–
That life more abundant can be yours every day;
And that will increase if you take time to pray.
Give it your heart and give it your all–
Remember that, for you, there’s no greater call.
The things of this world–its gadgets and inventions,
Can never compete with all of God’s intentions,
Which are wrought by you through prayers effective and fervent,
Impacting lives–through prayer, you’re His servant.
P. A. Oltrogge
“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.”
James 5:16-18 (New King James)
