Unleash Your Prayer Power
“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you.” John 15:7 KJV
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Eph 6:18 KJV
Prayer is one of the greatest forms of preservation and protection that an individual can utilize. We should take our responsibility seriously and pray regularly. Prayer is the most powerful weapon of the Christian’s life. The prayer closet is actually the council chamber where divine commands are issued. It unlocks the treasures of God. In prayer we learn about God, His blessings, and His anointing.
Prayer is answer and prayer is power. The act of prayer generates omnipotence; Elijah prayed and the rain came and ended the three and one half year drought for the nation of Israel. Also the early church prayed and Peter was released from prison supernaturally. Prayer and praise was the key that brought sudden deliverance for Paul and Silas.
Prayer changes the course of nature. It brings life into dead bodies, and sight to the blind and peace to the troubled soul. Prayer is a weapon we have barely used. Daniel prayed Israel out of captivity.
Why do we place so much emphasis on prayer? Because Jesus Christ the Son of the Most High God had a prefect prayer life. He knew how to get into the presence of the Father through prayer. Jesus life was a life of prayer. Luke 9:28-36 reveals to us we can contact God and get answers. Just a few days before His decease at Jerusalem He went up to pray, and as He enters into God’s presence He had a vision and the disciples were privileged to see it as well.
What is prayer? Prayer is the place where we connect with our Heavenly Father. He is the source of our power. Prayer is the highest form of power on the earth. Prayer is the place where we meet with God. The first time God and man met was in the Garden of Eden, they met to talk over the plans that God has for the entire creation. As they met regularly in the council rooms of God, they walked and talked together. This is Awesome! Think about that!
In conclusion, I am sure God expects us to have a fervent prayer life so He can come and walk and talk and have fellowship with us daily. Over and over in the Scriptures God calls us a house of prayer, Mark 11:17 the place where His power is Unleashed beyond measure.
