One of my favorite quotes on prayer is from Watchman Nee ~
“Our prayers lay the track down on which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, His power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails.”
Isn’t that an awesome visual?! I love thinking of a huge, mighty locomotive filled to overflowing with God’s power and blessing…and how my part is to pray and “lay down the tracks“.
I’ll often picture this mighty locomotive as I pray for my husband…”laying down the tracks” as God’s power is unleashed as he heads off to work.
Or “laying down the tracks” for my children…asking God to come “roaring through” with His protection and goodness and grace in their lives.
You get the drift…. 🙂
It breaks my heart to think of a powerful Steam Engine, filled with Divine blessings and miracles, waiting patiently in the station, desiring to have rails on which to run.
Last year I asked others to “pray down some tracks” while I worked on writing my “Red Hot” Bible Study. I could totally sense the prayers!! Some days I could barely write fast enough to keep up with the “down load” I was receiving. (And I can’t wait to share more on God’s good plan for this study!)
As I prepare to head to Kokomo for the filming of my testimony, could I please ask you to “pray down some tracks”? I am so out of my comfort zone, and desperately need a fresh measure of God’s power, presence and peace!
My week is filled with more wardrobe shopping, hair and makeup sessions, and script practicing. (Ah ~ my stomach hurts just thinking about it!) Mostly I want to spend time connected to the Vine, allowing Him to do His transforming, empowering work! I’m so deperate for Him!
May I please ask you to “pray down some tracks” and watch God’s irresistible power and might come roaring through?! I’ll be heading to Kokomo on Sunday ~ with filming taking place on October 10th & 11th.
I’d be so extremely humbled if you’d pray for things like peace, good weather, that I’d be able to talk into the camera without being a nervous wreck, patience for the video team while they work with a “newbie” (and that I wouldn’t make them take 60 “takes”), my family while I’m away, technical stuff would go smoothly, good health, that I’d be more focused on God rather than if my wardrobe makes me look
fat, oops, I almost let some “fat talk” slip (sorry if I disappoint you, I’m just being painfully honest), that God’s Spirit would come upon me in a powerful way (and that it would be obvious that it is God working in and through me), and most importantly, that God would use this project to transform lives for His purpose and glory (only reason I’d do something like this!).
How about for you?? How could I lay down some tracks for YOU?? I’d love to hear from you!
