Pressure Applied Prayer – S3E3

In general, most people have experienced or are experiencing some type of pressure. Hence, the need for this episode, Pressure Applied Prayer. Now, before going any further the educator in me wants to make sure we are all on the same page. Because the word ‘pressure’ has several different meanings. 

Photo 1 White woman sitting in front of computer trying to work while surrounded by her children and pet cat. Photo 2 Black woman sitting in front of computer with her hands in the prayer position. Both pics represent the message--Pressure Applied Prayer. Because when under great pressure, applied prayer is the best way to get direction and peace.

So, for this post, the pressure we are referring to means burdens of physical or mental distress. No doubt, we can all agree, the COVID-19 pandemic put families around the world under a great deal of pressure. For me, I could not go through the pressures of life without pressing back with prayer.  

Apply prayer to every situation 

Have you ever heard the phrase “Prayer changes things?” I am a witness; I know prayer works. You see, I know for a fact that when I pray, God always hears me. And He has shown me as such, time and time again throughout my life. 

Listen, in case you didn’t know, God cares about what you care about. This is what the Holy Bible has to say about His care. 1 Peter 5:7 Amplified Bible says, “casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” 

Thus, when you seek Him in prayer in Jesus’ name, He hears you and He will answer you. So, when the pressures of life overwhelm you, press back by applying prayer to each situation. 

Prayer–the burden remover 

Again, I cannot stress enough the importance of prayer because it is communication with God. You may ask, “But SD, how can prayer help me when I’m being pulled in all directions and I feel like I’m losing my mind?” Well, I’m happy to answer that very question as best I can with the help of scripture. Proverbs 3:6 New Living Translation says, “Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” As you can see, when we seek God’s direction, He will show us who, what, when, and/or where.  

In other words, no matter the pressure, God can and will lift those heavy burdens if you would just talk to Him about them.
