Episode 352

TODAY’S READING:

“There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

1 Samuel 2:2

 

This verse comes out of Hannah’s prayer in the Bible. Quick recap, Hannah was a wife who could not bare children. She was one of two wives, and her husband’s second wife would always taunt her for not being able to provide him with a child.

 

She never would lash back out to her, she knew her prayer life was powerful, and she didn’t need to stoup down to that level. She handled herself with grace. Although she was heartbroken, she believed that God would have the favor of her and her life.

 

She prayed so much that a priest once saw her and accused her of being drunk because her mouth was moving, but he couldn’t hear her prayers. Her confidence and passion for God are what I admire most of her life.

 

She was the kind of person that knew that God was able, and her prayers mattered.

 

A lot of us face equal devastation, in our health, in our relationships, in our careers, in our education, and it is hard to keep the faith. It’s hard to continue to pray when you’ve been asking for years for the same thing. But I encourage us to be like Hannah this morning.

 

May we walk badly into our prayer rooms, our cars, our beds, our offices, our kitchens, the backyard. Where ever God meets you, I pray we go there. We declare that what we are praying for will come true. But it is through our real, humble, and passionate faith that we must know that there is no one holy like the Lord, there is no one beside Him, there is no rock like our God. This verse is a good direction for us to look to.

 

When we say those words, when we feel those words, when we declare those words over our lives, things happen. The atmosphere shakes. The enemy trembles because he knows that there is no rock like our God. So pray. Pray without ceasing. Pray to know that God hears. Pray real prayers, humble yourselves, like really humble yourself. And be passionate and bold about what you are asking for. 

 

PRAYER

Father God, today we badly pray. We pray like Hannah. We know like she knew that there was no one holy like you. There is no rock like you. We know that you are greater than all things. We know that you love us beyond measure. And today, no matter how tired we are of praying for the same thing, we are going to pray for it again. We are going to give it to you. We know you hear us. We know you’ll bless us. We thank you for listening to us when we pray.  It is in your son’s Holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
