What must we do to see God work? Dr. J. Edwin Orr reveals the answer at the National Prayer Congress in Dallas, TX, October 26-29, 1976.
“Dr. A.T. Pierson once said, ‘There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.’ I’d like to talk to you today about what God has done through concerted, united, sustained prayer.
“So what’s the lesson we can learn? It’s a very simple one. It’s that familiar text. ‘If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin will heal their land.’ 2 Chronicles 7:14
“What’s involved in this? God expects us to pray.
“Now some people say, then that means it’s up to us. No, you can’t say that either. Matthew Henry said, ‘When God intends great mercy for his people, He first of all sets them a-praying.’ Even God is sovereign in this matter. But we must respond. He has chosen never to work without our cooperation. It’s a very simple thing: You must pray and God will work. May God help us so to pray, Amen.”
