S.O.S. Prayers

‘God is our mighty fortress, always ready to help in times of trouble. And so, we won’t be afraid!’ Psalm 46:1–2 CEV

One day a woman was driving through the countryside when she saw a tornado approaching, so she hid behind her car and watched as it demolished a nearby house. Running over to what was now a hole in the ground, she saw a man hunkered down with his eyes closed. ‘Are you ok? Is there anybody down there with you?’ she asked.

‘No,’ he replied. ‘Just me and God having an urgent conversation!’

Nothing fuels prayer like real need; in a crisis even unbelievers will pray. There are some issues in life we simply can’t resolve on our own, hence the psalmist wrote, ‘When I am in trouble, I pray, knowing You will listen.’ (Psalm 86:7 CEV) Sometimes our prayers are simply cries for help meant for God’s ears only. When you’re out of options, your faith develops fast and emergencies become opportunities to experience God’s grace and power in a greater way. So, if you’re in an S.O.S. situation today, here’s a prayer God will answer: ‘Father, it feels like I’m in an impossible position with no way out. Let me feel Your presence and the encouragement of Your Spirit, reminding me that with You all things are possible to those who believe. Send the answer from Heaven to my earthly situation. From where I stand, things look hopeless. But You are the God who created the earth from nothing, and rolled back the Red Sea so Your children could cross over safely. You made the blind to see, the lame to walk, and the deaf to hear. Today I thank You that You’re my God, and that You are “always ready to help in times of trouble”.’
