This week on SGN Scoops we have focused on Prayer. We hope that what you have read has encouraged you to spend more time talking to our Heavenly Father.

Today we have two more Prayer features. Please be sure to let these artists know that you have read their comments.

Today’s Bible verse: “Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.” (Revelation 8:2-4New King James Version (NKJV)

The Hyssongs, Southern Gospel trio:

I believe that prayer is the key to moving the hand of God. The Bible clearly tells us that often we have not because we ask not. I can not imagine starting or finishing the day without prayer. Our family often stops during the day to ask God’s wisdom, guidance, direction, and blessing. The Hyssongs gather in our motor home before a concert to pray.
When Richard’s daughter was born six-and-a-half years ago with more than 22 tumors in and around her heart and multiple brain tumors, the doctors told us she would probably not make it and if she did she’d never walk or talk. We prayed and friends all over the world prayed. A book I wrote is being released this week entitled, Makayla’s Heart Moment by Moment. Get a copy and read for yourself how God answered prayer.
Everyday we see the hand of God working in our midst. Our Lord who healed the deaf, gave sight to the blind, and caused the lame to walk again, still hears and answers prayer today.

I love praying in the car while driving to work, or to sing, to church, or anywhere! It makes me more aware of the things around me and makes me feel safer. One of my biggest prayers was answered in my car as well!

One day I was crying and having a meltdown while driving home because I needed a sign from God that I was doing what He wanted me to do regarding a particular situation. I was crying so hard that I pulled over and parked the car because I couldn’t see to drive, and after a few minutes of tears and crying out to the Lord, I looked up in the sky and saw that the rain clouds were drifting away and a big beautiful rainbow was stretched across the highway.

I’ll never forget that for as long as I love. The rainbow is one of Gods majestic signs, but that day it was also very personal to my heart.
