Prayer is a most powerful tool. Fortunately this is a tool that is available to each of us. Prayer, without any doubt, is an awesome power. The Apostle Paul said we are to “be constant in prayer.” That kind of dedication recognizes the importance of prayer, the power of prayer, and the privilege we have in prayer. But we must recognize that God does not force us to pray. Neither does He set limits on how often we pray. Each of those is a decision that each of us must make. We can determine what we pray about, when we pray, and where we pray.
Unfortunately, many of us see prayer primarily as a means of getting us out of trouble. That’s a very big mistake. The Bible calls us to embrace a much deeper scope and dimension of prayer. Each of us is called to be devoted to prayer – to continue in an attitude of prayer daily – to pray all the time, silently or aloud – and to persevere in prayer, without giving up. There are verses throughout the Bible that teach us about the availability of prayer, the power of prayer, how to take full advantage of it, and the results. It would be well worth the time to get into the Word and find out what all Jesus had to say on the subject. That effort will result in a tremendous blessing!
We must all remember that prayer is a wonderful privilege that God has given to us. We have His invitation – and really it’s a command – to pray and to seek Him! Through prayer we can influence the lives of friends and family, bring revival in our own lives, avoid temptations and pitfalls, and literally help to change the world. It requires surrender of self to God, and becoming firmly dedicated to a life of prayer. Making prayer a part of our daily lives will not only help us – it will help to make those around us better. Collectively, in time we can change the world through individual and corporate prayer. May God bless each of our readers, their families and co-workers and may He let them learn how powerful prayer truly is!
