Providence 365, Week 33: Providential Prayers

This is Barbara, of Precepts & Promises, here with Week 33 of Providence 365.
The verse I chose this week is Ephesians 6:18, which says:
With all prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit...
...with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.  
God is indeed Sovereign, but He uses means, or the things of this world, to accomplish His will.  "Means" might be things that we can't control, like the weather or the actions of others.  It might also be the things that we can do in our lives, like acts of mercy and generosity.
Prayer is one of those.  Scripture speaks of God changing His mind after hearing a prayer from a faithful follower.  Whether or not He had already determined that changed course of action is for greater minds than mine to determine.  What I do know and believe is that God hears the prayers of His people. 
When God hears, it is not like when you and I hear.  Implicit in the hearing of our prayers by a faithful and good Father is that He will act on those prayers in our best interest and for His ultimate glory. 
What a great responsibility we have!  Our brothers and sisters all around the world are suffering various levels of persecution.  We have close friends out of work.  Our families are fractured.  Our own hearts need encouragement. 
This week, be on the alert for the things God brings to mind or in your path that need prayer and petition, knowing that you could very well be the means He has chosen to accomplish His will.  What a great privilege and responsibility!
 You can get the word art Here.

And, then, when you have your layout completed, we (Pam and I) would love you to come and post in  our forum and gallery.  We want to rejoice with you!
