For many people, prayer is a last resort. However, prayer should be our FIRST RESOURCE! Prayer is simply communication with God. Jesus died to rent the veil between us and God the Father. Prior to that time, we needed an intermediary between us and God. A priest had to intercede on our behalf. We could not enter into God's presence and live.
Jesus came to restore our relationship with the Father. Yet, so many Christians do not utilize the access that Jesus died to give us! The Bible says that "We have not, because we ask not" (James 4:2). The fact that most saints spend more time worrying than praying, is baffling. Matthew 7:7 says "Ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be open unto you." In other words, God is saying PRAY! No matter what you are facing in this COVID-19 season, know that God is in control and that "The fervent, effectual prayer of the righteous availeth much" (James 5:16).
