‘The Power of Prayers’

 

Last Monday morning, while on the way to the airport, I received a text message that my flight to Toronto was cancelled. To save money I had chosen the Canadian Airlines for my trip to Korea, and now it looked like I would face some difficulty in arranging the connecting flights. As I was expected to attend important meetings as soon as I arrive in Incheon, I could not afford to miss the connecting flight. I would have been frantically worried at other times in the same situation, but strangely I felt at peace this time. I even managed to send Kakao Talk message to our Assistant Pastors; “I am at airport. I may have to leave tomorrow, but I am not worried because all of you prayed for me at today’s early morning service. It will be a good trip. Take good care of our sheep.”

 

After over an hour of negotiations, my flight to Korea was rescheduled for a direct flight to Incheon on Korean Airlines, which is usually more expensive than connecting flights and more than I am willing to spend. What a special blessing for me! Knowing that I would arrive on time in Korea, I enjoyed the four hour of leisure time at the airport by having a cup of coffee in peace until the departure time.

 

Our prayers have power, either in accomplishing what we want or not. Even if I were not provided the better option, as I was spared of any unnecessary anxieties or worries, your prayers were answered. This morning I experienced the great power of prayers again, thanks to all of your prayers.

 

A renowned attorney in Washington, D.C. gave this confession; “In my line of work, sometimes I lose my case at the court, and I was always stressed about the possibility of losing my cases. When I won, I was very happy, but only for a moment, and then I began to worry about losing the next case. One day, I decided to change my perspective and to rejoice in advance, until I actually lose the case. This change of perspective has helped me greatly in my life.”

 

My beloved congregation, all of the pastors at KUMC of Metro Detroit are praying for you. And the Intercessory Prayers Team, the Parish and Cell Group Leaders are also praying for you. Therefore, please do not worry ‘in advance’, as most of our worries are ‘in advance’ of actual facts. Let us believe in the power of prayers and rejoice ‘in advance’ this week. Sending you love and blessings!
