The Depths of Prayer

Dear Diary,

Prayer is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself and others. God always answers prayer. God will lead you into a deeper place of prayer. Psalm 106:9 says, “He led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.” Are you in a wilderness? God will lead you through. He will not lead you through a shallow place, but through the depths. Some wildernesses may be darker and deeper than others, but God will lead you on. Romans 8:26 tells us, “For we know not what we ought to pray…but the spirit itself maketh intercession for us…”  “He who causes us to go through the depths, as through the wilderness, will also cause us to go through the deeper places of prayer” (Amy Carmichael).  Pray in earnest and allow God to take you into the depths of prayer.

Thought for Today: How precious and healing are those prayers that come from the depths of our soul.
