Effective Prayer

Do you know what the most powerful weapon against the enemy is? Prayer, Yes prayer! It is the Power of God through the Spirit of God in prayer that He will destroy walls, break chains, devastated wicked plans, and deliver from evil. It will give you strength, courage, and boldness to stand against the enemy and trust fully in the Lord.

Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it, John 14:13-14

If you want to know where to go, pray. If you want to know what to do, pray. If you are in despair, pray. No matter what situation or circumstance, good or bad you must pray. Let the Lord know your request, believe in Him, and trust that He is in full control. Then leave it all in His capable hands, turn your face to Jesus and march forward in the confidence of the Lord.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24 

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” Matthew 21:22 

Do you want to be effective in your everyday life, speech, and deed? Then you must spend much time in prayer and communion with God. Pray continually, stay in contact with the Lord day and night, make your requests known to the Lord and He will answer your prayers.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Even Jesus had weaknesses in His flesh as a human just like you and me, though perfect in deed and thought. But He would get up while it was still dark and spend time in prayer with God. He needed the strength and power only the Lord could give to accomplish God’s will. 

And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He(Jesus) departed and went out to a desolate place, and there He(Jesus) prayed. Mark 1:35 

Realize that what God wants, it is for His power to move through you. He wants to be continually connected to you that He may accomplish His will through every moment of your life. 

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:16

If you stay in prayer and in His Spirit, though you may not know where you are going at times, He will accomplish so much more in your life. He will make you strong, wise, and effective through your own weaknesses, through prayer. 

If you do this one thing, then you can be confident that He will do all He said He will do, for the Lord can not lie, He does not sleep, He does not lose, and He will not fail.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! Matthew 7:7-11
