In today’s powerful world that we live in, there’s so much power right at out fingertips.
And most of us can’t even explain what happens when we flip on the light switch. We can see the natural power of Niagara Falls, and we’ve heard about the great dams out West.
We even sometimes wonder how electricity goes out, and the lights in big cities. This is electric power.
I often look at the airports and wonder how the jet engines life off such a pile of metal, and it really flies. And at Cape Kennedy there’s the scape program at the space shuttles and the powers of natural, and man made things, goes on Prayer.
And there’s a power right at Christian’s fingertips, and it’s called the Power of Praye.
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done. ( John 15:7)
If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:14)
But we as Christians don’t really realize the profit that’s at our fingertips. This power that we have, just simply by asking.
Of course, we must have a clean heart and a pure life behind this prayer, and not to mention a surrendered will. Meaning we have surrender it to God. Not our will but his.
We have to make sure this request is according to God’s will, and Our prayer must be asked in the name of Jesus, and it must be for God’s Glory.
We cannot ask bad or evil things in Jesus name. God doesn’t want anything bad to happen to his people. And we are ALL his people. Whether we like them or not.
We all already know that Jesus Christ set the example for us to follow.
We cannot want God out of the picture and then ask Him to answer our prayers.
So if every Christian wants to be like Christ. Them we all have to pray without ceasing. I say a prayer under my breath when I’m out in town, or when have an appointment with someone. ”Father I ask that this appointment will go in my favor.”
When good things happen during your day. Silently or when to get where your going. Thank Him when you miss a car accident that was a close call. Thank Him for the extra money you found in your pocket at the point when you needed it desperately. Things like that.
Jesus taught His disciples to part.
His favorite place to pray was probably the Garden of Gethsemane under the old olive trees.
He always prayed for others. And He prayed that His works, and His word, would glorify His Heavenly Father.
Even on the Cross, bleeding His life away, His prayer was for others.
There was a little girl and her mom said; you didn’t say your prayers tonight, the little girl said, we momi didn’t need anything.
This is just like us, we need to be praying to God whether we need anything or not. We should always be thinking Him for getting up in the morning, and for allowing us to breathe another day. Give Him thanks for everything He does.. And ill guarantee that His does plenty for you to be thankful for.
Jesus prayed for Him enemies as we,, as His friends.
All along He was praying for His disciples and those who followed Him and those who follow Him now.
When Jesus was on the cross. He was suffering all the agonies of Hell, not to mention suffering for your sins and mine.
But did He curse those that hung Him there?
No He prayed for them as well.
In Ezekiel 1:49 Jesus says; if me people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Would if we all did what it says in Ezekiel 16;49 and could humble ourselves. I wonder what America would be like now.
Father have Mercy on America and Heal our land.
