There's Power in Prayer

I was asked to write a little something for our church newsletter about our prayer ministry.  As I was searching thru some greeting cards to pick out just the right card for a special person (it takes me FOREVER to pick out a card 'cause the words have to be from my heart and fit the person!!!)....I came across one that had these words about prayer....so I included in my article.

No ocean can hold it back.
No river can overtake it.
No whirlwind can go faster.
No army can defeat it.
No law can stop it.
No distance can slow it.
No disease can cripple it.
No force on earth is more powerful, or effective,
Than the power of PRAYER!!!

This was the verse of scripture that I thought went right along with these words....

James 5:16b (NLT)
The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. Amen!
    I also love pretty cards meaning cards that have beautiful verses, and yes, they have to fit he person I'm sending it to.

  2. Amen! I still enjoy sending out handwritten cards with special messages for Christmas. It's sad how much this tradition has died down due to technology. I'm not too fond of e-cards--not for Christmas anyhow.

    I stopped by to wish you a beautiful Christmas in case I don't get to next week. Many blessings to you and your loved ones my friend.
