Prayer–is that all?

Have you ever thought this way: “Yes, prayer is important, but giving / doing / serving is where the action is really at…”? It’s easy to think this way, but the more I read, the more I am convinced it’s exactly backwards. The Apostle Paul had this to say, concluding the chapter on spiritual warfare with this finale:

Praying ALWAYS with ALL prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with ALL perseverance and supplication for ALL saints;

Ephesians 6:18

This is one reason why I am very grateful for your prayers for me and ROA. If I take the Lord at His Word, prayer is not just a nice thought: it is the means to moving the hand of God, so to speak, and is therefore no less valuable, and perhaps more so, than monetary contribution or any other kind of gift. That fellow pilgrims would speak to the Lord of heaven and earth on my behalf is an immense blessing–one that inspires me to create software to help us all become better prayer warriors.
