Ex. 14:15  Then LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me?  Tell the people to get moving!"

There is a time to pray and ask the Lord to help you and there is a time to put feet to your prayers and move.  The Israelites were praying, but they weren't going.  They were waiting around wondering what they were going to do, wondering if God would do anything to help them.

Prayer without feet is usually a waste of time.  God wants us to pray, but He also wants us to do our part.  The Israelites were going nowhere until they obeyed God and stepped forward.  The moment that the feet of the priests touched the water, the sea parted.  Soon dry ground was available for them to walk on and they began their journey.  What a sight it must have been!  A million and a half people walking between sea waves piled high on each side of them.  Impossible?  No, because God heard and answered their prayers.

Pray much, but also put feet to your prayers and do something to bring about what you are praying for.  Granted, there are many things we pray about that we cannot do anything to achieve the desired results, but many of our prayers require us to do what we can do to help ourselves and others.  Pray and then get moving!
