The Power of Prayer

The Power of Prayer

Theme: The Power of Prayer 

Text: (James 5:16) “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous (person) availeth much.”


Here is a question, Pray first, or Plan afterward?

God expects us to be orderly. He expects us to manage our time, to discipline ourselves, to prepare well-planned programs. But if we could learn to pray first and plan afterward how different would be our homes, our marriages, our families, our life, and even our churches, or whatever we are doing for Christ. 

Maybe, just maybe, we are planning in one direction and God’s will is in another direction. God might say, “Hold everything! Turn around and go this way. This is My will for you, not that way.” 

Even if we are plugged into God’s will and know we’re going in the right direction, we may be going at a snail’s pace. God says, “Look, you see only a tenth of what I have for you. There are nine-tenth that you you’re not seeing, that you don’t know anything about."

Thru prayer, God wants us to make ourselves available to Him, and to say before we start a plan, “Lord, tell me what You want me to do, where You want me to go, how You want me to do it.” Praying

Then our Omnipotent God, with all the abundance of heaven at His disposal, will pour out His power upon us. Instead of flowing our tiny, tiny plan, God wants to open heaven and flood us with His blessing.
