Magnificent Prayers by Nick Harrison

SCRIPTURE: “You have made known to me the path of life;
You will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” (Psalm 16:11 NIV)

Why is it that prayer in the name of Christ brings such fullness of joy?
In part, because we get what we ask. But that is not the only reason, nor the greatest. 
It makes God real. When we ask something definite of God , and He gives it , how real God becomes! He is right there! It is blessed to have a God who is real, and not merely an idea.
There is no greater joy on earth or in heaven, than communion with God, and prayer in the name of Jesus brings us into communion with Him.
The Psalmist was surely not speaking only of future blessedness, but also of present blessedness when he said “in Thy presence is fullness of joy.” O the unutterable joy of those moments when in our prayers we really press into the presence of God! 

Magnificent Prayers by Nick Harrison

Beloved in Christ,
For the next 2 weeks, we will use the Devotional entitled Magnificent Prayers by Nick Harrison to remind us about the relevance of prayer in our daily lives.

 May the Holy Spirit minister deeply into our hearts, the message He has for us for today.



Prayer is truly, wonderfully, amazingly magnificent.
Prayer is an invitation to us from God Himself, asking us to please communicate with Him. Through prayer, we ask for and receive good things from our heavenly Father. Through prayer, we are invited to ask of Him of  whom an angel told Mary, 
“Nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37). Miracles, yes -but certainly prayer itself is the greatest miracle.
The best antidote to spiritual depression is prayer. When we enter into communion with God, despair and hopelessness must go. 
Never fear the darkness. Overcome it through the power of prayer.
Has it occurred to us that the answer for which we continue to pray may already be on its way! God has heard it and attended to it. Don’t be discouraged by the delay
God is faithful, keep watching expectantly.
