May 2017 Update

“Lord, teach us to pray….So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” 
Luke 11:1, 9

Dear Praying Friends,

May 4th was National Day of Prayer. Our National Women’s Prayer Team regional leaders came together that day from around the country to meet and pray together, live and in person at the Luis Palau Association headquarters in Portland, Oregon.  We were a TASK force (Together, Asking, Seeking, Knocking) for His will to be done in and through the Palau team.  

In Luke 11, Jesus himself taught His disciples to pray.  Those lessons are for us as well, for we are also his disciples. 

Why did Jesus pray?  

  1. To be an example for us. 
  2. In His human nature, it’s a natural thing to do. 
  3. As part of the Trinity, it is a way to communicate between themselves.  

Jesus prayed for others (intercessory), and with others.  He prayed alone, in nature, regularly, as a sprinter and as a marathoner.  

His prayers were heartfelt, in knowledge of God and the Scriptures.  His prayers were persistent and full of expectation, looking to the will of His Father, not His own.  

We are called to pray in the same manner.  Let us be his TASK force . . . together, asking, seeking, knocking . . . for His will and in His perfect timing.

Asking Seeking, Knocking with you,

Gail Stockamp
