TOPIC: PRAYER IS POWERFUL
TEXT: JAMES 5:13-18
MEMORY VERSE: “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).
Prayer is far beyond talking to God, like many Christians assume. Prayer, the greatest of all powers accessible to humans, translates a person from the physical realm to the supernatural realm, where we may wield the power of God. It is in this realm that "all things are possible to him that believeth" because real prayer invokes the power of God. This was why Gordon Lindsay said, "Prayer isn't a last resort to turn to in an emergency. Prayer is an essential part of our day to day life. When we learn the secret of praying, our whole life will become a succession of miracles." This awesome prayer power is only accessible to those who have been washed or cleansed in the blood of Jesus Christ, through repentance from sins. Righteousness and holiness grant us unhindered access to the presence of God where you may freely "decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee." Wouldn't you rather pursue and acquire this awesome power by which you may excel in all human endeavours?
QUOTE: Prayer invokes the power of God.
CHALLENGE: Acquire prayer power and rule your world.
PRAYER: Help me, LORD, to acquire prayer power.
