“And having a high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.”
Jesus was not kidding when he declared, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matt. 28:18)
He occupies the highest throne of authority! Remember:
He called a coin out of the mouth of a fish.
He stopped the waves with a word.
He spoke, and a tree withered.
He spoke, and a basket became a banquet.
He spoke again, and demons fled, sickness was healed, and even a battalion of soldiers collapsed instantly!
Economy, Meteorology, Botany, Food supply, Governments,… “All things have been handed over to me by my Father” (Matt. 11:27)
So when we pray, we need to remember just who it is that hears us! Taking all things He is and has done should stir a faith and peace in our valleys when we call out to Him!
So pray! Since God works, prayer works. Since God is good, prayer is good. Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven. You’re never without hope because you’re never without prayer. And on the occasions you can’t find the words to say, just call on His name. He is near to the brokenhearted and they of a contrite spirit.
Going forward, when you spend your time with Jesus in prayer, just as with communion, do it in remembrance!
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;”
