Just Pray


Jesus in Pray

Quote from our Pastor speaking on Jeremiah 29:1, 4-14:

So it was, during this particular time, so many had turned aside to idol gods. They had different altars set up throughout the land and God did not look on this favorably. And he allowed certain things to happen; one was this captivity, knowing that if the church were in trouble, they would seek him for deliverance… And God begins to speak …and says [to Jeremiah], “Send a letter to the church. Let them know that I have not forgotten them.” He sends the letter and he says, “Tell them to be encouraged. Tell them to lift their heads up… [And] instead of being confrontational …pray for peace. Live in harmony. Don’t become so aroused and be so willing to fight and to struggle; but pray for peace. Walk in peace.”

So many times, we feel like we need to confront everything. [But all we need to do] is just pray… I learned a long time ago that when you pray, the prayers of the righteous [are] like heaping hot coals over the heads of your enemies. Folk will start treating you right and don’t know why they’re treating your right.
