Cheetahs hold the title of the worldâ€™s fastest land animal and can reach a top speed of 70 miles per hour. The cheetahâ€™s speed is a unique one. No matter what happens, it will get to the end before its opponents; thatâ€™s one of the advantages of its incredible speed. As I reflect on the prayers in this volume from Ezra to Job, I canâ€™t stop imagining how Ezra and Job ran after their destinies in a tough race. This is not the time to walk, but to run after your promises through prayer. Job is an example of the race finished well. Even with all the odds he faced, he recovered and continued the race. Job lost all he owned, his entire family, and even himself; when a plague struck him down. People told him to curse God and die as they didnâ€™t believe that Job would get back in the race by one way or the other. However, Job did the exact opposite; rather than cursing, he blessed the name of God. Lo and behold, his illness left him, he became cured, and all that he lost was replaced in more folds. Even with all the odds that Job faced, he completed his race and finished well, surpassing the people that had no afflictions. The advantages of prayer are enormous – prayer will get you to where you need to be at the right time and keep you one step ahead of the race. In every competition or race, we find ourselves in we shall run faster like cheetahs and finish well. Your prayers are the cheetahâ€™s speed! Prayer will make you run after your promise and distance you from your past failures and mistakes.
