Power of Prayer

I went to an international conference on missions. There they had a “wall of prayer.” Written on a wall were the names of different countries and missions around the world.
I was very touched to read about all the missions in the world. I prayed for people in these countries who do not know Jesus. I prayed especially for people in my home country of Chile. I want people in Chile to know about Jesus and His wonderful gift of salvation.
Our Bible verses today show us that prayer is very important. James gives the example of Elijah who prayed for rain, and it happened. James also reminds us that we should pray when we are having troubles, when we are sick, or when we are struggling with sin.
Spend time in prayer today. Pray for people around the world who do not know Jesus. And pray for Christians who have problems or are sick. God will pay attention to your prayers!
