What do you need? Are you trying to make a decision; do you need a financial miracle; a job? Do you need a family member to be saved; a relationship mended; a healing in your body; deliverance from an addiction? What do you need? What have you been seeking? What have you been waiting for? Have you been asking others to help you with? Have you been seeking others to pray for you? Have you been trying to work harder at getting a solution to your problem, issue or situation? Get back to the basis.

It’s nice to have people to talk to; it’s a blessing to have someone listen when you’re down; it’s great to have ambition and to be able to work hard. But when it comes down to getting what you need, the way you need it… when it comes down to receiving the answer to your question; the solution to your problem; and joy from your sorrow…when it comes to receiving deliverance from bondage and directions when you feel lost…when it comes down to getting what you need the way you need it, you have to get back to basics.

When Hannah could not have children, and she was in deep sorrow and sadness, she prayed and poured out to God. What was the result of her prayer? She had a son named Samuel, a judge and a prophet. She also had 3 more sons and two daughters. When Moses was fed up and overburdened with the complaining of the people of Israel, he talked to God and God gave him help. Before Jesus chose the twelve disciples, He prayed all night. Before Jesus was arrested in the garden; when His flesh wanted a way out and his disciples were sleeping….when He was preparing to face the cross and face the betrayal, Christ prayed! He endured the pain and finished His mission…. But He prayed!

Have we forgotten the basics? Prayer with faith removes worry; prayer with faith removes doubt; prayer with faith causes breakthroughs; prayer with faith causes us to walk in God’s will; prayer with faith makes our work easier and our faith stronger. When you need something, get on your face and pray! When you are seeking direction, open your mouth and pray; when you need a miracle, pour out your soul and pray! When you feel over-burdened and overwhelmed, lift up your hands and pray! When you need a family member blessed or a loved one saved, go into your closet and pray!

It’s so simple, but we make it so hard. The Bible tells us to cast our cares on Him….the Word tells us not to be anxious, but to pray. Why do we have such a hard time giving our worries to God? Why can’t we just do what the Bible says… ‘Pray without ceasing.’?

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

Love somebody today who doesn’t love you; doesn’t care about you; won’t repay you, can’t repay you and doesn’t want to repay you…then you will be treating them the way God treated you…
