(James 5:16) says, The Prayer of a righteous person ispowerful and effective. Scripture gives us examples of ordinarymen and women of God who prayed and extraordinary things happened as a resultof their prayers such as Elijah, Moses,Daniel, Hannah, Jabez, David, Hezekiah,Rachel, Leah, just to name a few. What God did back then in the lives of his children, He is still able to do Today in our livesbecause God never changes.Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever. Never underestimate the power of prayer. Prayer is one of the powerful weapons we believers have to use against the enemy. That is why the enemy tries to limit ourprayer life because he knows that ourprayers limit him.According to Scripture, We should never stop praying,(1 Thessalonians 5:17). We should always pray even if we don’t feel like praying and no matter what our circumstances look like. Prayer releases God’s power in our livesand in our circumstances.Prayer doesn’t have to be complicated orlong for God to hear us. God still hears us even if our prayers areshort and uncomplicated. However, whenever we pray, Scripture saysthat we should believe that we have receivedit and it will be ours, (Mark 11:24).Prayer has the power to change things starting with the one who Prays.
(Romans 8:28) Amplified Bible says, And we know [with great confidence] thatGod [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God,to those who are called according to Hisplan and purpose.God’s plans for us cannot be thwarted(Job 42:2).Nothing and no one can stop God’s plansfor us from coming to pass. Nothing is impossible with God,Nothing is too hard for God.God is Able to use everything that wasmeant for evil, everything that was meantto harm and destroy us to work for ourgood.Every obstacle is an opportunity for Godto show Himself strong on our behalf,(2 Chronicles 16:9). God is Able to use every challenge weface in our lives as an opportunity for usto know God more, to grow spiritually, to develop our faith, perseverance andcharacter.God is Able to renew our strength and spread our wings of faith, as we allowthe winds of God’s spirit to lift us toHigher ground.
GOD DOESN’T GIVE US WHAT WE CANHANDLE, HE HELPS US HANDLE WHAT WE ARE GIVEN
Scripture reassures us that Nothing is impossible with God, Nothing is too hard for God.Nothing is too big for God to handleNothing is too small for God to notice.God cares about everything that concernsyou and me.God sees and knows everything that wego through in our lives.God is with us, in us and for us.There is nothing so small that it escapesGod’s notice and nothing so big that itsurpasses His power.God doesn’t give us what we can handlebut helps us handle what we are given. No matter what each day brings,we can rest assured that God will alwayshelp us handle what we are given. God is still All Powerful, All knowingand Present Everywhere. God is actively involved in our dailylives even if we don’t see it.
