Daily Reading: Ezekiel 48 GW; Acts 9 GW

Prayer works.

Can you imagine this scene?  Tabitha, lying dead after suffering an illness, her body prepared for burial.  Peter arrived after receiving an urgent message from the disciples saying they needed his help.  Upon his arrival, widows surround him, showing Peter the clothing Tabitha, also known as Dorcus, sewed for others while alive. If I was Peter, I think the pressure of the moment might get the best of me.  But not Peter, he knew what to do, pray!

Even after following God for five-plus decades, I still have moments of doubt.  In my prayer journal, I often write these words, “God, forgive me for doubting.”  As many miracles I’ve seen God perform in my life, I still doubt.

But not Peter.  Kneeling, he prayed. Somewhere in Peter’s Spirit, God answered.  Knowing what to do, he turns to the dead woman and says, “Tabitha, get up!”  Her eyes open, she looks at Peter and sits up.  What an incredible moment in time.

Take the position.

When Peter knelt and prayed, he was placing himself in a position of submission.  I’m not saying we have to get on our knees every time we chat with God.  But I do believe placing yourself in a submissive position helps your heart surrender to God.  Each morning, when I end my prayer time, I get on my knees.  Something sacred occurs at this moment where my heart softens as I submit myself to God’s will.

One of the most powerful moments of my life occurred in Nags Head, NC, during my twenties.  Single, with a girlfriend, we escaped for a night away from life.  Honestly, I can’t remember why we were both struggling, but I know we were.  Sitting in our hotel room, we decided to give our struggles to God.  I will never forget both of us getting on our knees together beside the bed and praying.  Life changed at that moment, my journey back to God becoming more of a reality.  

Prayer precedes miracles.  Take the position.  Submit to God, let Him do the work.

Lord, thank You for working miracles in our lives.  Forgive us for trying to control things on our own.  As we humble ourselves before you today, let our hearts come into alignment with Yours.  Let Your blessing and favor cover us as we move through our day.  IJNIP.  Amen
