The Power of Prayer?

My mom emailed this quote to me, and I just had to share it. My friend David Matthews, one of the ministers at the Downtown Church of Christ in Searcy, AR (where my parents attend), used it in his sermon last Sunday:

“I strongly suspect that if we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers to God makes, and all the people those little prayers were destined to affect, and all the consequences of those effects down through the centuries, we would be so paralyzed with awe at the power of prayer that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.”

– Peter Kreeft

That is a deep, profound thought that warrants meditation.

    I have seen the result of many of my prayers.
    Here’s one: I prayed most of the night for God to send someone into my life that needed Jesus Christ. The next morning as I was going into the gym I met Airiel Simmons at the front desk and she asked me about the shirt I was wearing (CIA Shirt). I told her it was our college group and told her about something we were doing on Campus that night. She showed up. Fast forward a few years; He name is now Airiel Woodell.
