Day Fifteen - Prayer makes a difference

Posted by vneigenfind , in 40 Days of Prayer 16 May 2013 · 1732 views

Read: Psalm 17
Pray: That the gospel would go out in the Middle East with power and that many would follow the Messiah.


Prayer is the pulse beat of the Christian. It is essential to our relationship with God and our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing (I Thess. 5:17). He who is truly alive spiritually is constantly in touch with God. Obviously prayer is more than calling upon God for various needs.

Without question the Lord does indeed invite us to call upon Him for specific needs. When my wife and I were serving as missionaries in the jungles of Borneo (now Kalimantan) my wife became very ill with a high fever. Medical help was many miles away by river. After several days she took a turn for the worse. My four year old son and I knelt by her bed and cried out to God to heal her. Immediately she experienced a strong chill and the fever left her. A month later--brought by dugout canoe—came a letter from a lady in Tucson, Arizona who mentioned that while she was praying she felt that Mrs. Neigenfind was in some sort of trouble. She prayed earnestly that she would be delivered. We compared notes, and it was at the exact time we experienced the healing touch in Margaret’s body.

Our prayer life has been rewarding in many ways. We have witnessed family members, including children and grandchildren accepting Jesus as their Savior. Furthermore, two of our grandsons, Keith & Connor Neigenfind, are serving the Lord under the auspices of The Christian and Missionary Alliance.


Dear Lord,

Thank you for the relationship I have with you in prayer. Thank you for walking with me and for your many blessings. As I face the future, my one desire is to trust and please you in every aspect of my life.
--In Jesus name

Today in the National Office chapel, Steve Peterson and a healing team from our office, are beginning a ministry where we can go each Friday to receive prayer for healing. It is awesome how it goes along with the reminder in this blog about the healing power of the Lord! Thank you, Mr Neigenfind!
