The Gift of Spiritual Synchronicity
What an incredible privilege and blessing we have to directly connect with the Maker of Heaven & Earth. W.R. Thomas described prayer as “an expression of devotion, an instrument of revelation and a weapon of warfare”. It enables personal communion with the one, true and living God. It’s the vehicle through which we tune into the heart of God; through prayer God discloses that which we need to hear and see. It resources us to engage in the heavenly realms; through prayer we are to have influence in that unseen spiritual world. We may have heard it a thousand times, but what if satan really did tremble when he sees even the weakest saint upon his knees?
Most Christians have little difficultly in believing in the potency of prayer, yet there are often times that we fall short of properly engaging in prayer. If prayer is effective, then we need to be effective in prayer. We ought to be a people committed to prayer, passionate in prayer and persistent in prayer. The truth is that prayerlessness works to cut us off from the prevailing, overcoming power of God. God has blessed us with this incredible gift of prayer, His word frequently calls His people us to be a prayerful people yet far too often we take prayer for granted.
The Global Day of Prayer is a great initiative and constructive catalyst in gathering people to pray for some of those things that really matter to God. It is an opportunity for us to bring our towns and cities, our region, our nation and the nations to God in prayer. To stand before God on behalf of geographical locations, difficult situations, particular circumstances and certain individuals. To passionately carry the burdens of our heart to the One who is able to make all the difference – after all, our prayers must mean something to us if they are to mean anything to God.
Let’s realise once again the power of our spiritual synchronicity as we join in prayer with countless other Christians in the UK and across the world, praying simultaneously. Let us join with them in humbling ourselves, in praying, in seeking His face and in turning from our wicked ways, knowing that God is faithful to His promise to hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land!
