The 2006 movie, Amazing Grace, depicted the life of William Wilberforce, the member of the British Parliament who was most instrumental in abolishing the slave trade in Great Britain. Through sheer determination and prayer, he took on the slave industry, and eventually witnessed the abolition of the trade… without war… without firing a single shot.
Of all things, guard against neglecting God in the secret place of prayer.
How much of what God wants to do in our lives is simply waiting for us to call on His name in prayer? How much of what God wants to do in our nation is on hold until His people humble themselves and pray?
But you may be saying, “Well, I prayed, and God didn’t grant my request… He didn’t answer my prayer.”
The thing that we often forget is that no is just a valid answer as yes is.
So, let me encourage you today: Make finding God in the secret place of prayer a daily habit in your life.
