Soon after I graduated from college I gave my life to the Lord. Even though I grew up in a godly home, I treated salvation like a game of Russian roulette. I played around because I figured I had time on my side. Was I ever deceived!
I know today what made me drop to my knees, repent of my sins and ask Jesus into my life: prayer. My mother spent untold hours in prayer crying out to God, "Lord, save my children." She knew back then what I know now: Prayer changes things.
Despite what we see in the natural realm—a failing economy, broken marriages, cancer, the war and more—God intervenes when we intercede in prayer.
The Bible says, "And when they had entered [the city], they mounted [the stairs] to the upper room where they were [indefinitely] staying-Peter and John and James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas [son] of James. All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer, [waiting together] with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers" (Acts 1:13-14, The Amplified Bible).
God is no respecter of persons. If He responded to prayer 2,000 years ago, He will show up and move by His Spirit when we come together in one place, with one heart and no agenda, wholeheartedly seeking Him.
