A Call to a Life of Prayer - Antonio Baldovinos
Now more than ever, we need to be living lives of prayer. There is a call going forth from the heart of the Lord to cry out for the justice of God, making the wrong things right. Antonio shows us how prayer is the key to unlock the secrets of Heaven! Why? Because prayer is an encounter with the living God to release His heart on this earth. What stops us at times form coming to this place of prayer? We do not see God as He truly is. We think He is distant or that His promises might be for someone else, but not is. But Antonio reminds us of the reality is that we are talking to a real God on a real throne in a real place (Heaven)! We needs to see God rightly as a just and merciful God who loves His people and wants to move. Antonio calls us to the place of faith to believe that God is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do. This is the place where our prayers will get answered. It is a call to partnering with God to see His Kingdom come and His will be done!
