“And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto [them].”
In every drug, there is something called the “active ingredient,” which is the main drug or the chemically active part. This is because other substances which are not the principal drug is added to make it.
The “active ingredient” in prayer is “God’s Covenant or Word.” When Israel was in bondage, God heard their groaning and pain but what made God respond was not necessarily their suffering. The “active ingredient” was “God’s covenant or Word.” God remembered His covenant and respected them.
God respects His word more than your suffering. Let’s remind Him of His word or covenant in prayer and enjoy a powerful prayer life!
