Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The Power of Prayer

"The LORD .....hears the prayer of the righteous."  Proverbs 15:29 (ESV) 

The resource to infinite power is God. The access to infinite power is God's Son Jesus. One of the greatest expressions and influences of infinite power is prayer. God has so designed and planned that through our prayers God does wonderous things.

James 5:16-18 (ESV) 
16 .......The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 
17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
Father it is both gracious and generous that You include us in the miraculous affects of prayer. Believers throughout history have seen You chance the climate, still the storms, heal all kinds of disease and affliction, transform enemies into friends, give peace in the midst of turmoil, guidance in uncertainty, faith that over comes fear, abundance in times of need and so much more through prayer.
Father when we pray according to Your will, for Your way, and for Your timing, the impossible happens. Lord Jesus you have said: "20.... I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (ESV) 
Father thank You for the encouragement, and invitation to pray boldly in faith, in conjunction with will, and for your glory. In the power name of Jesus, Amen.
