Fervency of Prayer

"It is not the arithmetic of our prayers, how many they be;
Nor the geometry of our prayers, how long they may be;
Nor the rhetoric of our prayers, how eloquent they be;
Nor the music of our prayers, how sweet our voice may be;
Nor the method of our prayers, how orderly they may be;
Nor even the theology of our prayers, how good the doctrine may be---
which God cares for.
Fervency of spirit is that which availeth much."

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16)

The fervency in which we pray for the particulars of God's will to be accomplished in our lives will be the prayer that accomplishes much. The fervency in which you pray for lost loved ones will someday come to fruition. Don't lose your zeal to pray! God loves that we come to Him with the least to the biggest issues of our hearts. Go to him often with fervency and belief that He will hear and answer according to His will. Prayer through the Holy Spirit is the very avenue and the great privilege where we meet at the very throne of Almighty God. He does not grow weary of our constant coming to Him. Go often, go zealously, go believing!

Praying for you,
