Pocket Sized Thoughts – Prayer – Part 15

When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven.” (2 Chronicles 7:1)

This was the climax of much labour and a long prayer (not that there is merit in the length of prayers). Great energy, commitment and sacrifice had gone into building the temple. At last the work was done but without the living presence of God, it was only a mere building. Solomon knew this and led the people in prayer. When he had finished, God answered by fire. Elijah experienced the same on Mount Carmel as did the 120 disciples on the Day of Pentecost. Whatever we pray for, the Presence and glory of Jesus Christ among His people, as a living flame, is the ultimate answer to all prayer. Let us pray then, without ceasing, without doubting, in much faith and expectancy for the Lord Jesus to glorify Himself in power and reality in all our lives.

PRAYER :- “Lord, glorify yourself in me in every part of my life. Amen.”
