Tremendous Power In Prayer


“Tremendous power is made available through a good man’s earnest prayer. Do you remember Elijah? He was a man like us but he prayed earnestly that it should not rain. In fact, not a drop fell on the land for three and a half years. Then he prayed again, the heavens gave the rain and the earth sprouted with vegetation as usual.” James 5:16-17 Philipps Version. 

Do you ever feel like your prayers bounce off the ceiling and come back down.

There is tremendous power in prayer, but we need to know how to access this power.  We sometimes forget that people in the Bible were real people. James 5:17 reminds us that Elijah was a man just like us and he prayed that it wouldn’t rain for three and a half years, and it didn’t.  He had the faith, the boldness, the courage to come into agreement with what God desired to do and his prayers availed much.

So, what is it that seems impossible in your life?  How are you praying about it? Do you spend most of your time in “prayer” complaining to God how you feel about it? Or do you take action, listening to God’s heart and will and believing Him for amazing transformation?

Don’t allow disappointment to weigh you down, focus on the goodness and faithfulness of God to carry you through. There is tremendous power in prayer.
