We know the power of prayer by interacting with people who have received its healing power.  The prophet Elijah calls on God to start a fire dosed in water after none of the pagan gods could do it.  He was trying to convince people that the God of Israel was the one true God.  What an amazing  site when a powerful gust of fire consumed the offering and the wet wood.

When we pray we may not see anything as dramatic as that, but why not ask.  We have a powerful force in Cursillo called Palanca.  Prayers and sacrifices we call Palanca have great power.  They give us the opportunity to “go big” as did Elijah.  He prayed for the Lord to do something dramatic and believe God would follow thru.  We should do the same. Even though we are not having Cursillo weekends, we still need to do Palanca.  We need to pray for an end to this pandemic and a return to religious freedom in America.  We need to pray for healing and of course pray for our Cursillo movement.  Please also check our web site to register your Palanca.  There more power when we put all our prayers together !

So go big in your prayers.  Ask God for powerful solutions, always knowing he will answer in his own way and in his own timing.  Try it !! You never know what might happen !!
