The Power in the Book of Psalm Book PDF/Epub Download
It is shame that the modern world have lost the edge when it comes to the power of prayer. Prayer is so powerful that in the hand of a righteous person, that a man like us named Elijah prayed earnestly that is will not rain and it did not rain for three and half year. And to show how effective prayer can be, he prayed again and the havens gave rain. The bible shows us time and time again how the less powerful have used prayer to conquer their adversaries. Our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ told us Mathew 17:20, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. Why will Jesus give us such an assurance? It is because, the weapon we fight with are not the weapons of the sinful world, we the children of God use divine power of God to tear down the strong hold of the evil one. So we must continue to pray even when you think your answers are not coming as quickly as you wanted. Remember when Martha and Mary send a message to Jesus that Lazarus is sick," his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick" even though the answer took two days to get to the sisters. The most important thing is that Jesus was called and that is when action was put in process and they did not put their request on the righteousness of Lazarus or his status in the ministry or how hard he works or even what he has given to the Church. The appeal was based on the love of Jesus Christ. "The one whom you love is sick," that is our clue; we must always focus our prayers on the love of God. We also have the confidence that God will answer our prayers if they are in agreement with His will. So I know that anything I ask that is according to His will be answered no matter how sinful the person praying may be. Even though we don't always get yes, but His answer are always in our best interest. And we don't have to follow any secret incantation before praying or offer some unnecessary repetition while praying. And the eloquence of our prayer will not make God answer our prayer. That is why in Matthew 6:7-8, Jesus rebukes those who pray using repetitions, "And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him." "The Word of God is full of accounts describing the power of prayer in various situations. The power of prayer has overcome enemies (Psalm 6:9-10), conquered death (2 Kings 4:3-36), brought healing (James 5:14-15), and defeated demons (Mark 9:29). God, through prayer, opens eyes, changes hearts, heals wounds, and grants wisdom (James 1:5). The power of prayer should never be underestimated because it draws on the glory and might of the infinitely powerful God of the universe! Daniel 4:35 proclaims, "All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: 'What have you done?'" So pray and God who loves you first will answer your prayers.
