The Prayer the Righteous Can Move the Hands of God

We are Agreeing in Prayer

My Dear Friend,
You have prayed and waited patiently for God to answer your prayers about your future. I know that it has been a difficult time. The waiting is often the hardest part! I want you to be encouraged and not downcast. You are such a precious friend, and I hate it that you have gone through difficulty. James 5:7-8 says, “Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.”
When you have sown in faith, the Lord has seen. You have been patient, and  God knows your needs. You need His hand to move on your behalf, and it will. Continue in prayer and doing all you know to do, stand firm! That is what the word instructs us to do. Continuing in James 5: 16-18, “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” Then James talks about Elijah, and I love this scripture. “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain; and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.” Then Elijah prayed for it to rain.  Elijah kept praying for rain.
Six times he prayed and sent his servant to see if there was rain, and nothing happened. What did he do? He prayed a seventh time.
He sent his servant again who said, “I see a cloud the size of a man’s fist.” Elijah said, “Better get ready, it’s going to rain!” The word says, “And he prayed again and the sky poured rain, and the earth produced its fruit.”
Elijah, the man with a nature just like ours, prayed earnestly. So it shall be with you. Elijah’s prayers were answered not because Elijah was amazing, but because God is amazing. I will pray for you, and you keep me posted. Better get ready!
God loves you my friend,
