my Niece, sent this to me today, thought there was i lot of truth in the words.
I was going to post it in the General page, but thought it might be better here in the prayer page."Prayer is a Mighty Tool, in a Spirit Filled Believer"

Just Push

A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled
with light, and God appeared. The Lord told the man he had work for him to
do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained
that the man was to Push against the rock with all his might...

So, this the man did, day after day. For many years he toiled from sunup to
sundown, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the
unmoving rock, pushing with all his might!

Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, Feeling that his
whole day had been spent in vain. Since the man was showing discouragement,
the Adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture by placing thoughts into
the weary mind: (He will do it every time)!

You have been pushing against that rock for a long time and it hasn't
moved.' Thus, he gave the man the impression that the task was
impossible and that he was a failure. These thoughts discouraged and
disheartened the man.

Satan said, 'Why kill yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving
just the minimum effort; and that will be good enough.'

That's what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a matter of
Prayer and to take his troubled thoughts to The Lord.

'Lord,' he said, 'I have labored long and hard in Your Service, putting
all my strength to do that which you have asked. Yet, after all this
time, I have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter. What is
wrong? Why am I failing?'

The Lord responded compassionately, "My friend, when I asked you to serve
Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock
with all of your strength, which you have done.

Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it. Your task
was to push. And now you come to Me with your strength spent, thinking that
you have failed.

But, is that really so? Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and
muscled, your back shiny and brown; your hands are callused from
constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard.

Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass that
which you used to have. True, you haven't moved the rock. But your calling
was to be Obedient and to push and to exercise your Faith and trust in My
wisdom. That you have done. Now I, my friend, will move the
rock. "

At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect to
decipher what He wants, when actually what God wants is just simple
obedience and faith in Him.

By all means, exercise the Faith that moves mountains, but know that it is
still God Who moves The Mountains.

When everything seems to go wrong......................Just P.U.S.H ...

When the job gets you down................................Just P.U.S.H.

When people don't do as you think they should... ....Just P.U.S.H.

When your money is 'gone' and the bills are due......Just P.U.S.H.

When people just don't understand you..................Just P.U.S.H.

P = Pray

U = Until

S = Something

H = Happens

Pass this on to all your loved ones and friends who may need it; they
may get it just in time. 'Though no one can go back and make a brand new
start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
