Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in (Christ), fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith …

Peggy and Christine

•February 7, 2014 • Comments Off

‘In 1949-1951 God used two elderly sisters, Peggy and Christine Smith, in the Lewis Revival in Scotland. Both women were in their eighties. Peggy was blind, and Christine was crippled with arthritis. They couldn’t even leave their little cottage to worship in the village church. But they knew how to pray. God used their prayers to plant seeds of longing in the hearts of men who then began to pray for revival. God sent a great spiritual awakening in response to the earnest prayers of these two obscure women.’

~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Biblical Womanhood in the Home, p.76. 

 

The significance,  the power and the legacy of prayer!

What an Almighty God can do through the humble, faithful, sacrificial prayer of those who love Him.

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective ~ James 5:16.

The perfect way to come to the end of the year, in worship of God’s beyond-words greatness :) This is stunning! Blessings on your New Year’s eve …

 
 

Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works thy hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed;

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook, and feel he gentle breeze;

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

Lyrics translated by  Stuart K. Hine, 1949.

Of God’s Life

‘The true ministry is God-touched, God-enabled, and God-made. The Spirit of God is on the preacher in anointing power, the fruit of the Spirit is in his heart, the Spirit of God has vitalised the man and the word; his preaching gives life, gives life as the spring gives life; gives life as the resurrection gives life; gives ardent life as the summer gives ardent life; gives fruitful life as the autumn gives fruitful life. The life-giving preacher is a man of God, whose heart is ever athirst for God, whose soul is ever following hard after God, whose eye is single to God, and in whom by the power of God’s Spirit the flesh and the world have been crucified and his ministry is like the generous flood of a life-giving river.’

~ E. M. Bounds, Power Through Prayer.

 

Though these words were intended for the preacher, they are words that can also apply to any Christian life. In whatever God has called each of us to, in whatever He ordains for each day, may our lives be ‘God-touched, God-enabled, and God-made.’ May our character reveal a heart that ‘is ever athirst for God,’ and may our interactions with others, and the areas in which we serve, give life ‘as the summer gives ardent life.’
