Do you need a breakthrough?
Do you desperately want to see your prayers answered?
When we desperately want God’s answer, we focus all our energy on receiving it. It is this drive, says E.M. Bounds, this “…singleness of desire, this definite yearning that counts in prayer and drives it directly to the center of supply. This is the basis of prayer that expects an answer. It is that strong, inward desire that has entered the spiritual appetite and demands to be satisfied.”
Prayer is a call to transform circumstances, people’s lives, their cities and their nations for their good and God’s glory.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” (Matthew 5:6, NIV).
“That’s when men and women began praying and worshiping in the name of God” (Genesis 4:26, MSG).
Your desire and desperate felt need is part of God’s “equation” or invitation for you to develop your prayer life.
“Without desire, there is no burden of the soul, no vision, and no glow of faith. There is no strong pressure, no holding on to God with a despairing grasp…. God draws very close to the praying soul. To know God, and live for God – these form the objective of all true praying… So, to those who pray like this, the Bible becomes a new discovery, and Christ a new Savior by the light and revelation gained through your prayers” (E. M. Bounds, The Necessity of Prayer, ch. 4).
