Then the priests, the Levites, arose and blessed the people, and their voice was heard; and their prayer came up to His holy dwelling place, to heaven.
THE THING THAT PLEASES GOD – PRAYER OF FAITH
And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
THE THING THAT FACILITATES HEAVEN ON EARTH.
In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
THE THING THAT MOVES ANGELS ON BEHALF OF PEOPLE
Are angel not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
THE THING THAT POSITIONS US IN POWER.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
THE THING THAT NEVER FAILS
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
THE THING THAT OPENS HIGH SECRETS.
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
1. SEE GOD IN HIS GREATNESS FIRST
“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?
He made people
He sets them where they are
He knows their thoughts
He loves them
He has a plan that cannot fail
I In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple.
2. SEE WHAT THE ENEMY DOES NOT SEE
For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
2.1. THE ENEMY DOES NOT ALWAYS FORESEE THE TURN AROUND STRATEGY IN GOD’S HAND.
1 Corinthians 2:8
None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
3. SEE HIS READINESS TO COMFORT
2 Corinthians 7:6
Nevertheless God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus,
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.
4. SEE YOUR HELP COMING FAST
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you.
And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
