God’s work in prayer is enabling us, empowering us to the faith that our words are part of God’s work on earth. He gives the confidence. He has the authority to do this in our lives. The calling to all of us is exactly the same: to partner with Him in our prayers. He invites us to come, to listen, to seek, to call on Him. Receive His thoughts and His ways. He longs to reveal them to each of us. Revelation is offered when we accept His invitation.
As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desireand achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11
Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel,
for he has endowed you with splendor. Isaiah 55:5
