The Power of Prayer

Do you believe in the power of prayer? Someone prayed for me yesterday. It was powerful. God definitely answered that prayer. It was a great reminder of the power of prayer. James reminds us, in James 5:16, that the effective prayer of a righteous person can accomplish much. It is not that the person is powerful, but the person is tapping into God’s power. I think we miss out on so much because we fail to pray.One of the greatest needs for our nation is prayer. One of the greatest needs for our churches is prayer. Prayer is perhaps the greatest need for families. Yet, we fail to pray. No wonder our lives are powerless. No wonder we feel defeated and discouraged. If you are facing a tough situation, pray. If you are discouraged about something, pray. Does your community or family have a glaring need? Pray. As a great old song reminds us, “Oh, what peace we often forfeit. O what needless pain we bare, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.”
