The Power of Prayer

Jesus gave Christians two great gifts for us here on earth, the Holy Spirit and prayer.

The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray and He didn’t hesitate in sharing His wonderful prayer in not only the book of Matthew 6 but also in the book of Luke 11. We know it as the Lord’s Prayer.

Matthew 6:9-13
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Praying isn’t hard to do.

The power of prayer can really move mountains, calm storms and bring peace of mind.

What happens when one prays depends on who, what and why the person is praying.

Making visits to various prayer websites over the years has left me with mixed feelings, especially, the sites that ask for people to donate for having someone pray for them. This is so ridiculous to think that because one pays for another person to pray, somehow, that prayer is going to get to God quicker for the person praying than the person who needs prayer.

The power of prayer is so remarkable that some have written books, produced DVDs and CDs about the subject on how to pray, when to pray and ways to pray. As usual, some believers will find anyway to make a dollar from a free gift from God.

I can’t say this enough. Prayer does work!

Nevertheless, in order for prayer to take hold of our lives, we must believe in whom we are praying too.

The power of prayer can transform lives. But prayer is not “positive thinking or the law of attraction.”

The power of prayer is all about praying the will of the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

If you are going through something in your life right now or know of someone needing prayer, I have included these subjects with scriptures and teachings that will hopefully benefit you in your prayer life.

Salvation
Healing
Deliverance
Forgiveness
Wisdom
Loving Relationships

The power is in Christ and the belief that He will answer our prayers if we seek Him with our whole heart according to His will.

Why not take the time right now to pray. Not just for yourself but someone who really needs you to pray for them.

Don’t ask someone if you can pray for them…just pray in the Spirit.

The power of prayer works!
