Prayer is a present-moment activity. It requires the direction of our energies in fullness toward God, right here and right now.
But in this present moment, faith-filled prayer takes us on a bit of a time-travel. It takes us forward, into a future not-yet-seen. While we are there – actively attentive to a possibility – we take ownership of that place, in hope… before releasing it to the God who holds all time.
And he deals with it. Faith-filled prayer is:
“To enter and engage the future, and render it a past already dealt with.”
– Peter Roberson: Revival Streams
This is praying ’till you mean it,
Then trusting the One who receives it.
