I walked in my office on Monday morning ready for the week. I prayed and I was prepared for my church’s Prayer Marathon week. My conversations with God were strategically planned with targets of prayer. I was excited and War Room ready. Bible? Check. Prayer closet? check. Then it hit me. A mountain of work, a mountain of problems and situations. I couldn’t get it together. My prayers were cut short, my quiet time got loud, A “Lord help” here, and a “thank You Jesus” there was all I could get out at times. I didn’t know how I was going to get over, around or move this mountain of work. That was Monday. By Wednesday I could tell it was going to get even more interesting. It’s now Friday and I still have plenty of work on my desk but I’ve learned to keep prayer as a priority. As the old Hymn says, I must tell Jesus all of my trials. My favorite part is the refrain which says: I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! I cannot bear these burdens alone; I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.
When we take everything to God in prayer, He gives us strength to climb, to run, to walk and to endure what is before us. Do you have a mountain that needs to move? Sing unto the Lord. Pray. Keep the faith, and watch God work.
