Prayer is the Answer…

Prayer is the Answer by Steve Durkac shares the powerful and practical principles of biblical prayer as the answer to problems and difficulties of life.

Pastor Steve Durkac of CrossHope Chapel Bible Church in Mobile, Alabama offers the reader four principles and practices that make personal and corporate prayer a true meaningful and effective joy for the follower of Jesus.

Prayer is the Answer is a simple read that offers a mingling of inspiration, instruction, and pastoral insights that help raise your prayer life to a higher level of communion with your Lord Jesus Christ.

Back in 1963 an unknown editor of a Christian denomination’s magazine placed this powerful expressed of prayer into its pages as a vignette, among a series of articles on the topic of prayer:

“Prayer is the answer to every problem in life! It puts us in tune with the divine wisdom which knows how to adjust everything perfectly. So often we do not pray in certain situations because from our standpoint the outlook is hopeless, but nothing is impossible with GOD. Nothing is so entangled that it can not be remedied. No human relationship is too strained for God to bring about reconciliation and understanding. No habit is so deep rooted that it can not be over come. No mind so dull it cannot be made brilliant. No one is so ill that he can not be healed. Whatever we need if we trust God he can supply it. If anything is causing worry or anxiety let us stop rehearsing the difficulty and trust in God for healing, love, and power.”

Copies of Prayer is the Answer are available at no cost at CrossHope Chapel Bible Church and selected healthcare waiting rooms through the church’s Literature Ministry.

The Creator opened man’s side in the Garden, resulting in a bride called Eve. 4000 years later man opened the Creator’s side on the cross, resulting in a bride called the Church.

The world is clothed in great moral darkness but we may walk in the light of Heaven. We have the aid of holy angels to illuminate our atmosphere by their close proximity and shielding wings.

The world is clamoring for our attention by drawing us into its web of fear, anger, or hopelessness. But we are called to set our affection above, looking for Christ’s return, that we may have hope.
