Power of Prayer

Philippians 4:6-7
Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Prayer is the communication with God through Christ and the Holy Spirit. Just as any physical relationship requires communication, the spiritual relationship between the Christian and God requires communication. Communication is the fundamental part of any healthy relationship. This is how we understand one anotherís thoughts, feelings, needs, desires, etc. We must have prayer to stay in fellowship with God. The Bible reminds us in Matthew 6:6, but when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father secretly. Then your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you.

It is important to pray the scriptures. This is the powerful written word of God. These scriptures are promises of God that we can claim victory, declare healings, or even rebuke the enemy. Praying the scriptures allow the Christian to pray with faith, hope, boldness, and truth.

There is power in prayer. Prayer can change any circumstance or situation. Prayer lifts burdens, strengthens our spirit, provides comfort, gives opportunity to voice needs, allows us to ask forgiveness, to seek directions, to intercede for others in need, and is a wonderful weapon against Satan and his demonic forces.

Prayer is a wonderful outlet to relieve stress, anxiety, worry, and fear. Why? Because we are encouraged knowing that God hears our prayers and knows our thoughts. He can wipe away every tear from our eyes, turn sorrow into joy, fear into courage, and anxiety into peace. Nothing is too big, and nothing is too small for the God with unlimited ability and resources. The same God who merely spoke the world into existence, who knows where every blade of grass has sprouted from the ground, who knows every star by name, who knows every hair upon our heads, cares about what we care about, who loves us unconditionally and eternally and will not withhold blessings from His children.

Don't take prayer lightly. It is every Christian's responsibility to maintain a strong, healthy, and powerful prayer life. And always with any prayer, be sincere and reverent. Always give honor, glory, thanks and praise to our remarkable Savior. Take time to talk to the Lord, let Him know that you love Him enough to spend time in fellowship with Him. If you are not in the routine of praying, you will lose touch with God from the lack of communication, simple as that.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
