Read Luke 9:28-36.

Prayer Brought the Glory

“And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered,

and his raiment was white and glistering” (v. 29).

   “Prayer Changes Things” is a famous saying found in various graphic formats posted on social media, hanging in churches, displayed in homes, and stocked for sale in many places of business. Even though that may be true, of greater importance is the fact that sincere, devoted prayer changes people – especially the ones doing the praying.

Have you ever met the “Man with the shining face?”  Jesus prayed while His disciples slept but were awakened by the shining light emanating from Him as He prayed. That light can also be ours if we invest time with the Master in prayer.

One of the unforgettable memories from my childhood churches is of the saints in earnest prayer. It seemed that their faces were glowing as they forgot about their surroundings and brought us all into the presence of God. Peter's sentiment was very real as we children (at least this one) wanted to stay in that atmosphere of God’s glory and never return to the struggles of life beyond the prayer room. (Harold Carpenter)

“And He walks with me, and He talks with me,

and He tells me I am His own;

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

none other has ever known.”

--- C. Austin Miles


Pray until your tabernacle is filled with God’s glory and spills over into your daily life.
