He's looking for a few good men (and women)!

Friday, March 28, 2014 (3:57 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions.

Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

The following is an excerpt from Moody's Anecdotes, a must read.

"A young man enlisted, and was sent to his regiment. The first night he was in the barracks with about fifteen other young men, who passed the time playing cards and gambling. Before retiring, he fell on his knees and prayed, and they began to curse him and jeer at him and throw boots at him. So it went on the next night and the next, and finally the young man went and told the chaplain what had taken place, and asked what he should do. 'Well,' said the chaplain, 'you are not at home now, and the other men have just as much right to the barracks as you have. It makes them mad to hear you pray, and the Lord will hear you just as well if you say your prayers in bed and don't provoke them.'

For weeks after the chaplain did not see the young man again, but one day he met him, and asked – 'By the way, did you take my advice?' 'I did, for two or three nights,' [the soldier answered.] 'How did it work?' 'Well,' said the young man, 'I felt like a whipped hound and the third night I got out of bed, knelt down and prayed.' 'Well,' asked the chaplain, 'How did that work?' The young soldier answered: 'We have a prayer meeting there now every night, three have been converted, and we are praying for the rest.'

Oh, friends, I am so tired of weak Christianity. Let us be out and out for Christ; let us give no uncertain sound. If the world wants to call us fools, let them to it. It is only a little while; the crowning day is coming. Thank God for the privilege we have of confessing Christ."

Need we say more? Let's ask the Lord to touch our lives with power today. That we may be released from our stresses, our problems and even our own desires — that we may become focused on being available for the task at hand. There's so much work to be done!

    The more prayers to be done the more temptation will come.
    But there is always a way out and the only way I know is through prayer.

    Never give up cos the one above us is watching and waiting for us to come back to him
    Prayer full hearthered is a very powerful prayer, now Im requesting for every one to prayer for the world for 'PEACE'

    I loved what I just read. Such an encouragement. The boldness God has given me these past few months, and now more of an reassuring within, helps me to step forward, and do what God would have me do.
    Thank you for your Wisdom, in Jesus.
