The Power of Prayer
Written by Christi Given | February 20, 2012
As Christians, we have access to the throne room of God. We are enabled by the power of God to bless people, impact our friends and family, and make a difference.
In life, we face struggles, opposition, testing, trials and waves of challenges. Through prayer you can overcome anything! The Lord WANTS you to ask him for help, wisdom, and advice. Don’t belittle God by thinking your prayers are silly, or that He doesn’t care–God does care!
If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm (Psalm 37:23).
He delights in every detail of your life. God is jealous for you! What is so great is God’s line is never busy. He is ALWAYS available and ready to listen. Sometimes we don’t always get an answer right away, but it doesn’t mean He isn’t at work.
He will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6).
Do you believe you have power through Christ?! He said “You will do greater things.” He will enable you! He will go before you!
When Moses was fearful and unsure about speaking to Pharaoh to release the prisoners, Moses questioned God, but the Lord said, “I will give you the words to speak.”
He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him (Exodus 4: 16).
You see, the people of God are always in communication with Him. Why? Because He orders their steps. He leads, He guides, He counsels. God should be your Father, your best friend, and your helper!
He said, “keep seeking, keep knocking” (Matthew 7:7). You don’t just say a prayer once and stop–prayer is continual, just as any relationship is! Keep watering the relationship and it will grow.
Don’t give up!!! I recently heard a pastor say, “don’t go to the phone, go to the throne!”
PI girls, what is it that YOU are praying for?
