Here’s an old story, but a good one. An organist was getting ready to play as the church service began. But when he put his hands on the keys, there was no sound. Everyone in the congregation knew that something was wrong, but no one knew what to do. Thinking fast, the pastor went to the podium and began praying a very lengthy prayer. While he was praying, the church custodion figured out that the organ was unplugged and quickly rectified the problem. Then, with the pastor still praying, he jotted down a note and handed it to the organist. The note read: “After the prayer, the power will be on.”
Be honest now, how much have you prayed today? Since I’m figuring that you and God have a lot to talk about, why don’t you settle in right now and have a quality time of prayer? Remember that the power is off until you do.
