Many of the requests called in to the Abundant Life Prayer Group are for matters beyond human control: “Only God can help” ― “Doctors say he cannot live” ― “Her disease is incurable.”

Immediately, this lifts prayer to a higher plane…the realm of the supernatural. In an easy matter, faith is apt to be mingled with human reasoning. We can think of possible ways prayer may be answered. But God says, “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways (Isaiah 55:8).”

When human efforts fail, it is God’s delight for us to ask largely of Him. Things which are impossible with men are possible with God (Luke 18:27).
