Prayer is love


155303887120533101_tLMVCI2C_bWho gives, gives, gives and gives? Answer: the prayer warrior.

Love drives him to his knees. Desperation keeps him there. He is the unknown engine of revival, working unseen to change the winds of history. Behind every conversion, there was somebody praying. Behind every miraculous offering getting the church out of debt, a prayer warrior did battle.

142637513169993642_cH1SkDdz_bHe goes unheralded. Others get the credit. Still he prays — and Heaven rains in response. No one claps him on the back. No one thanks him. In fact, people wonder why he’s “wasting time” praying.

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another — John 13:34 NIV. Prayer is one special way to love.

  3. I really liked this post. I agree. Prayer is the power of God put into action by the believer. You don’t pray – don’t complain about what you don’t have. Thanks!

  6. I found salvation because my great-grandmother was a prayer warrior who prayed it forward. What a beautiful example she was.
