Day Three: GOD'S GONNA DO SOMETHING!

Posted by David Goodin , in 40 Days of Prayer 04 May 2013 · 2024 views

Read: Psalm 4
Pray: For leaders of your city (mayor, courts, police, fire)

When I pray, I just know God is going to answer. I’ve been sure of this since I was six years old.

It was a dark night in southern West Virginia, early winter with a big storm moving in. I went to bed with the wind howling and rain coming down in sheets. It began as a thunderstorm, with sudden bolts of lightning and loud claps of thunder. I was terrified…so I prayed. I asked the Lord to stop the storm, at least long enough for me to fall asleep. Almost at once, everything was stone silent! I slept the night away as peacefully as you please.

The next morning I looked out the window and was amazed. Rain had turned to snow and there was a foot of it on the ground, with trees down and power lines strewn here and there. It had stormed all night, but it had stopped for a short while—in answer to my prayer—so that my little heart might be calmed.

For a lifetime, that early experience has emboldened me. Whenever I am overwhelmed, I go to Him in prayer. He has never disappointed me, and I know He never will!

Dear Jesus, I am asking in your Name and you have promised to supply. Strengthen my faltering faith with your rich and confident love. Amen…and thank you, Lord!

Thank you Jesus that you give peace even in the storms. I need it now in this journey with aplastic anemia for my 8 year old granddaughter. Because of the "kindness and love of God our Savior" (Titus 3:4) we can have this peace that only You give!

There is a peace that surpasses all understanding. I know that it does not come from me, but is a gift from God.
