Prayer inspiration

"Prayer brings you into a sacred partnership with Jesus Christ, the enthroned Son of God.  If God has not revealed this to you in His Word, it would have been blasphemous to suggest that you could share such partnership.  "The Lord worked with them" is a succinct history of the early church (Mark 16:20).  Further, Scripture calls all Christians "God's fellow workers" (I Cor. 3:9, II Cor. 6:1). 

There are many ways to "work" with God- through obedience, through service to others, and through sharing His love.  But He wants to have even more intimate contact with you. 

He wants to bring you into His inner circle where you can hear His great heart beating for a lost world.   

He has created you with the ability to speak to Him and fellowship with Him.  Above all else, as His "fellow worker," you were created to pray- as He prays...

He loves you so much that He desires you to intercede with Him as He intercedes with the Father, and to bless the world as He does.  

He mediates blessing through prayer.  You and I are to do the same"
-Wesley L. Duewel, Touch the World through Prayer
