“The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but un-offered prayer.”
You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant..”
Heb 12: 24
Here on my own what can I do? Look where I come to when I come to God in prayer – the awe and power and wonder of the divine community and the love of the One who chose to be our mediator! He has opened the way for us to have a private and intimate audience with the Father whose love for us is beyond measure. If we’re feeling tongue- tied the Spirit himself expresses our yearnings. There was a time most people stood in awe of God whether they responded to him or not. We have lost that reality and it takes a cataclysmic event to shake most of us out of our preoccupation with everything but God. There will come a day when each of us is alone with him and we will see then the opportunities we had to pray and the need that there was for us to pray. If we are to make a potent difference in pushing back the powers of darkness to see light dawn, it’s time to pray; time to discover what God will do in us and through us.
