Prayer Leads To Blessing.

“When Solomon had finished all these prayers and supplications to the Lord, he rose from before the altar of the Lord, where he had been kneeling with his hands spread out toward heaven. He stood and blessed the whole assembly of Israel in a loud voice, saying, Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as He promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises He gave through His servant Moses.” (1 Kings 8:54-56).
Prayer leads to blessing. When we receive the Lord’s blessing, we are to pass it on to others. We do not pray to the Lord so that we can say, “The Lord has blessed me” – and leave it at that. We must move on from there. We are to share His blessing. We are to bring His blessing to others. His blessing inspires our praise. We think of all that He has done for us, and we say, “Praise be to the Lord.” He is our God. He has not failed us – and He will not fail us. He will fulfil His promises of blessing. May His blessing give us the strength that we need to keep on saying, with all our heart, “Praise be to the Lord.”
