The Power of Life in Prayer
The power of prayer is the power that comes to us when we realize that God can be our point of reference-our refuge. It’s the power that comes when we’re able to be still and anchored in a belief which is stronger and deeper than the day-to-day hurdles we may struggle with.
Prayer is awesome! It creates a space for us to connect with God and share any matter that is on our hearts. Whether big or small, prayer has the divine ability to demolish strong holds by acting as our spiritual weapon against situations that cause us to feel frustrated, helpless or tempted. There have been times in my life where I’ve been so overwhelmed with daily tasks I become frustrated and feel as though it’s impossible to get through the day. These are the moments I have to remember to step back, take a deep breath, pray and prioritize. When encountering similar situations we can’t forget the power prayer holds! There is no need to grow weary, because God is always with us and He cares.
Prayer allows for you to experience the steadfastness of God rather than the incomplete and inconsistencies of our situations. For this reason it is important to set aside time in your day for prayer. I believe starting your day off right helps to create an uplifting and purposeful day to follow. Before starting your daily routine, try to incorporate prayer to ensure a clear mind, peace and understanding.
“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.” – James 5: 16-18
