“The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]." (James 5:16) AMPC
There are many things in life today that have happened but would never have happened if only we had prayed. Oftentimes, it’s not what happens that really is important, it’s what we do with what happens that matters, because the truth is, we can change anything.
When we just let things be, they dominate us and affect the circumstances of our existence. No Christian is powerless, even the prayerless one has a lot of power but the power is not put to use. He’s like a man who has a generator in his house; all the electrical fittings are there but he doesn’t know how to put the generator on.
We must realize the tremendous power given to us in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Many of us have never used that power; some of us have used it once in a while, but we need to use it more and bring glory to God, our Father.
Don’t accept the theory that “Whatever will be, will be”; study the Bible, you’d find that Jesus prayed so much. If anybody was qualified to let things be the way they were or to have stayed away from prayer, it was Jesus, but He prayed so much and so often.
In the book of Acts, we find Phillip transported by the Holy Ghost. He was moved physically by the Holy Spirit to another location. In moments of heartfelt prayer, we can be transported in the spirit, while we are still in one location to some other nations and accomplish divine tasks. Also, through prayer, our spiritual eyes are opened and we know what to do in every situation.
Give yourself to prevailing prayers, so that the Spirit of God can use you to deliver men and women around the world; this is not only important, but required today, even as the coming of the Lord draws near.
