Except You Become As Little Children
By Steve Higginbotham
June 5, 2005
 

Have you heard about the little boy who popped his head in his mom and dad's room one night and asked them, "Hey mom and dad, do either of you need anything?"  They looked at each other a little bewildered, and responded to the boy, "No, son, why?  To which the little boy replied, "Well I was just checking because I was about to say my prayers."

Wouldn't it be great if we had that sort of child-like faith in the power of prayer and the benevolence of our God?  I am convinced that prayer is one of the most neglected resources available to the child of God.  I wonder just how much we do not have because we have not asked (James 4:2)?  I wonder what exceedingly abundant things God would do for us beyond what we can even imagine if we would but ask (Ephesians 3:20)? 

The prayer of faith (James 1:6), prayed by a righteous man (James 5:16), that is in harmony with the Lord's will (1 John 5:14) shall be given unto us (Matthew 7:7).
