Prayer is…powerful

If we only knew the power that is available to us through prayer, it would stagger most of our minds.  The Scripture is full of accounts of God using human prayers to accomplish might miracles:

If our prayers aren’t answered like we wanted, then maybe we didn’t believe or maybe it just wasn’t in God’s plan.  We must believe that he is able to do anything that we ask.

James 5:16

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.

There is power in the prayers of a righteous person. Pray, pray and then pray more!


  • God stopped the sun still for Joshua
  • God parted the Red Sea for Moses
  • God caused the great fish to spit up Jonah
  • God chose Isaac’s bride for the servant
  • God opened the jail with an earthquake for Paul and Silas
  • God fed thousands with five loaves and two fish

These are only a few accounts of the power of prayer.  We have all heard accounts of people that we know whose prayers were answered in a miraculous way.  Cancers that were healed, masses that disappeared, homes protected during massive storms, people saved from accidents, dying miracles and certainly salvation experiences.

Prayer can change things and people.  Prayers that were answered after a few moments and other prayers that were answered after many years are examples of the power of prayer.  Prayer can change governments, countries, nations and the world.  God told believers to pray to heal their land in II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Yes, there is power in prayer.  Pray believing that God is able to do what you are asking Him to do and then wait for Him to answer.  There are those who pray for a particular need and then act surprised when it happens!  We are to pray believing that our prayer has been answered.  Matthew 21:22

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
