At one point in his ministry, Jim Cymbala, author of Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, sensed that God had a message for him:
If you and your wife will lead my people to pray and call upon my name, you will never lack for something fresh to preach. I will supply all… that’s needed, both for the church and for your family, and you will never have a building large enough to contain the crowds I will send in response.
As the people’s prayers were answered, the Cymbalas saw a wider application to the truths they were learning:
Prayer is the source of the Christian life, a Christian’s lifeline… Pastors and churches have to get uncomfortable enough to say, “We are not New Testament Christians if we don’t have a prayer life.”
If you make that kind of commitment to prayer this very day, you too can connect to the source of Christian life and watch God supply all that’s needed for you and your family.
P.R.A.Y. for Today
Praise God for being a Shepherd to your church; repent of any failure to seek His power; ask God for a breakthrough in your church’s ministry; yield by praying for this with others.
