Ask, and it will be given  to you;  seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. 

~Matthew 7:7, NASB


The Law of Prayer is to ASK.

~George W. Truett

Although Satan uses distractions, he does not want us to understand that we are being distracted. If we understand that he is behind the distraction, he loses his advantage.

Satan loathes and fears believers who pray. Any sincere pray offered by believers bothers Satan. He does not want us praying. Anemic prayers, good prayers, short prayers, long prayers, any prayer is bad as far as the devil is concerned. He does not mind us talking about prayer, reading books on prayer so long as we don’t pray. His approach is to discourage us from prayer by raising an endless questions that we cannot answer.

How does prayer work? Why would an infinite God who dwells in eternity listen to the prayer of a finite human in time? If God is sovereign, how can our prayer affect His will? How can He listen to thousands of us praying at the same time? How in the world can the human prayer of today affect the weather of tomorrow? We have answers to none of the above questions. Prayer is a mystery. It is something that we are to do in spite of the fact that we do not understand how it works. One does not have to understand the dynamics of electricity to flip a light switch.

Do I really know how to pray; as the old folks would say, “take hold of the horns of the altar?” Do I understand prayer? No, but I will pray every day. Don’t let Satan keep your from prayer. He will do everything he can to keep you out or your prayer closet. Many times, the devil has said to me, “You can’t pray, you don’t even know how.” My response is–“You may be right but I am going to pray anyway.” I believe God hears every prayer and no prayer is wasted. Every prayer counts.


I seen something last night, or at least, I think I saw something. Going into the Randolph facility, Ryder and I were impressed. You know you have money when you pay $20,000 per child in tuition. Imagine my shock when the PA announcer was totally without class. He was a red neck if I ever heard one. He would lead the Randolph fans in a cheer when Danville was in critical 3rd down situation. I think they replaced the dude at half time. I do believe it was a new guy in the second half.

If was not a good night for me sports wise: I was pulling for Danville, Boston, Kansas City and they all lost. Hey the temperature for last nights game was ideal.
