Topic: There is Power in Prayer [December 22, 2016]
Scripture: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
Thought For The Day: When you are in agreement with the God that cannot be defeated, then you are indefatigable.
Prayer is a major secret of power. Paul the Apostle was a man of intense prayer; so, tremendous power was at his disposal, to the extent that handkerchiefs from his body healed the sick (Acts 19:12-13). That was why he said in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Pray without ceasing.
Prayerlessness is the major reason for the powerlessness of this generation. A prayer-less Christian is a powerless Christian. If there can be a revival of prayer in your life, there will be a revival of power.
How then does prayer produce power?
1. Prayer positions a person in the courts of God (1 Kings 17:1). It gives you a stand before God, and to stand with God is to stand in power.
2. Prayer brings a person into partnership with God for the establishment of the Will of God on earth (Ezekiel 22:30). When you are in agreement with the God that cannot be defeated, then you are indefatigable.
3. Prayer positions a person as a Kingdom representative on earth. When you are a man of prayer, you are licensed to speak and act on behalf of God and His Kingdom.
Remember This: When you are in agreement with the God that cannot be defeated, then you are indefatigable.
1. Be consistent in your prayer walk with God.
2. Treasure the Presence of God above everything else.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the grace to be a person of prayer. Help me, LORD, to maintain a right standing with You, in Jesus Name.
