When you pray, do you seek His Face or His Arm?

In some of our prayers, if we are honest to God, we will find that rather than seeking His Face we are simply seeking His Arm. We pray because we find ourselves in a position where we need His Strength. We believe that

“…nothing is impossible with God.”

(Luke 1:37 NIV)


“Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea-- the LORD on high is mighty.”

(Psalm 93:4 NIV)

"Prayer, at its root, is a willingness to let God be God."

Dr. Sam Bruce

To pray is to commune with God. To speak with Him face to face. God is tired of having long-distance relationships with His people.
