Pray For The Impossible

    God loves to have His children pray for the impossible. "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible" (Matt. 19:26). That is Godís invitation to ask Him to do that which no man can do. Someone has said: "We have lost the eternal youthfulness of Christianity, and have aged into calculating manhood. We seldom pray in earnest for the extraordinary, the limitless, the glorious. We seldom pray with real confidence for any good to the realization of which we cannot imagine a way. And yet, we suppose ourselves to believe in an infinite Father." Perhaps our prayer life is poverty-stricken because we have not even asked God to tell us of some impossible things that He is waiting for us to lay upon Him. He has glad, glorious surprises for every child of His own who dares to trust Him.
