Prayer’s Alteration

I have been studying for several weeks the prayer life of Jesus as mentioned in Luke’s Gospel. He prayed five times in this book.  This Gospel has been called by some the ‘Gospel According to Prayer’. God has blessed in this study with several great truths about prayer’s Altering Work. One truth is found in Luke 9:18; “And it came to pass as He was alone praying, His disciples were with Him…” He was praying but they were just there.  Let us be assured that you might not feel like praying or even have the mental capacity to pray but ‘He ever liveth to make intercession for us’.

The other truth is in Luke 9:29; “And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered,” The word ‘altered’ means to have a drastic change to happen. I feel confident that prayer is not to change the things of our circumstances. The Bible says He is always the same, He changes not.  He did everything before He ever did anything. I believe prayer is to change us as we through prayer enter into His divine alteration and say ‘not my will but thine be done’.

Until next time,

Evangelist Tom Gilliam
