The Power of Prayer
Have you experienced the power of prayer? Have you earnestly cried out your concerns to God and received peace, healing, grace? Prayer is for sure one of the most amazing gifts God has given us. If you haven’t experienced the power of prayer, don’t waist one more minute! Why?
E.M. Bounds guides us “Four things let us keep ever in mind: God hears prayer, God heeds prayer, God answers prayer, and God delivers by prayer.”
Watchman Nee has said “Our prayers lay the track down which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, his power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails”.
One of my most marvelous prayer experiences has been a very quiet, earnest, tearful evening prayer with my husband about some hurts I had experienced. I gave all my hurts to God and we asked him to heal me. Afterwards I fell into peaceful sleep and in the morning the hurts were gone. I can’t explain it in any other way than that God had healed me. Miraculously all the hurts had been taken away.
“If you want that splendid power of prayer, you must remain in loving, living, lasting, conscious, practical, abiding union with the Lord Jesus Christ” states C.H. Spurgeon. God is generous and pours out gifts for his children. More and more you experience the power of prayer less likely you are to not to pray. It comes as much a part of you as breathing. Matthew Henry has said “You may as soon find a living man that does not breath as a living Christian who does not pray”.
I agree with Brother Lawrence: “There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of continual conversation with God.”
Thank you for the gift of prayer.

Come and teach us to pray.
Come and show us the way.
In Jesus’ name,
