A Prayer Prompted by Mark 5

Dear Heavenly Father,

There are times when we feel completely helpless, but this chapter shows us that Jesus is willing and able to help us in those times of our desperate need.

As in the case of the demons, we declare Christ’s power over the spiritual realm and any spiritual attack we may undergo.

As in the case of the woman, we believe that there is no sin, disease or condition that we may face that puts us outside of your grace, your love and your ability.

As in the case of Jairus’s daughter, we declare that Jesus has conquered even death.

Teach us to come to him for help, whether our needs are small or great. We understand that we truly depend on your grace and your provision through him, first of all, for our sin. That was our greatest need.

In Christ’s name we pray,

Amen.

 

Palmer St. Podcast: Pray

We may ignore prayer because it does not seem effective.  Prayer is somewhat humiliating, because it reminds us that we are powerless, weak and needy before God.  Jesus said it clearly when he said, “without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)  Prayer is powerful because God is powerful and God invites us to pray.
