The Power of Prayer

The Power of Prayer


“Pray without ceasing.” 1Th 5:17

When the Bible says, “Pray without ceasing,” that means pray every day, not just periodically or when you’re in trouble. “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (Jas 5:16 NKJV). The word “fervent” means passionate, persistent, and determined. It’s not the arithmetic of our prayers, how many they are; nor the rhetoric of our prayers, how eloquent they may be; nor the geometry of our prayers, how long they may be; nor the music of our prayers, how sweet our voice may be; nor the logic of our prayers, how argumentative they may be; nor the method of our prayers, how orderly they may be; or even the theology of our prayers, how good the doctrine is, that God responds to. Fervency of spirit is what “avails much.” The most powerful thing you can do is pray! And when you join with a prayer partner, your potential is awesome. “If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that [you] ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Mt 18:19 NKJV). It works like this: the less you pray, the less you want to pray; the more you pray, the more you want to pray. Nothing will motivate you to pray like answered prayer. But you can’t start with the answer; you’ve got to start with the prayer! Here’s a fact of life: we only keep doing what rewards us. So the key to building a great prayer life is to pray until you get answers. Think how deeply rooted doubt can become in our hearts when we’re actually surprised to find our prayers answered! So pray in faith and expect God to answer!
