Prayer is powerful. According to the Bible, the power of prayer is the power of God who hears and answers our prayers. Here are some things to consider when thinking and praying:
God can do all things; there is nothing impossible for Him.
For nothing will be impossible with God.
God invites His people to pray to Him. Prayer to God should be made consistent, with thanksgiving to God, should be made in faith, and must be within the will of God, for the glory of God and from the heart right with God.
Luke 18:1 (consistent)- And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.
Philippians 4:6 (thanksgiving)- Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
James 1:5 (faith) -If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Matthew 6:10 (within God’s will)- Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
John 14:13–14 (God’s glory)- Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
James 5:16 (Heart right with God)- Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
God hears the prayers of His children. He instructs us to pray, and He promises to listen when we do pray.
Psalm 18:6- In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
The power of prayer does not come from us. It all comes from God. Prayer places us in contact with our Creator, and we should expect almighty results, whether or not He chooses to grant our petitions or deny our requests. Whatever the answers are to our prayers, God, who is all the source of power comes from, can and will answer prayers according to His perfect will and timing.
• To God that your prayer life with Him is multiplied more than you have ever experienced before.
• That your prayer life becomes a part of your daily life.
