There are times in the life a person where we feel there is nothing physically we can do. Sometimes we feel helpless when we get to those moments. Other times we do all we can (in our own strength) to try and avoid those moments and we end up burned out.
God gave us a prescription for how to get thru such times - Pray it out! To pray - to listen to God and to seek God. To pray - to align your will and thinking with God’s will and plan. To pray - to cast your burdens upon the One who cares for you. To pray - to seek God to work powerfully in your situation or the situation or another. To pray is not to do nothing. To pray is to ask God to do everything! Jesus coached His followers on prayer to conclude this week’s Bible text:
And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.” (Mark 9:28-29 ESV)
Come to the end of you? Pray it out!
Fail to accomplish what you think is needed? Pray it out!
Run into a spiritual enemy that is not budging? Pray it out!
