Day 1: Introduction to The Power Of Prayer: Recognizing The Power Of The Tongue
Prayer is a vital tool and a powerful weapon. Sometimes when we get into a rut where prayer becomes routine, we forget how strong our prayers are. They are not JUST words. They are verbal arsenal that carries weight and power straight to our heavenly Father. Once your prayers reach heaven, God is obligated to move on your behalf. Your prayers can move God. Just imagine that for a moment. While you are on your knees, your heavenly Father is orchestrating things in the spiritual realms to make sure your prayer gets answered.
Someone reading this needs to understand just how powerful that is. God doesn't have to do this. He is God. He doesn't have to be at our beck and call, but He chooses to. His grace is that good. By nature, we are sinful and disobedient children. We don't deserve to have a single prayer answered, but God loves and cares for us so much that He dispenses angels, fights battles, sends blessings, and heals us all because His love runs deeper than our sins.
This devotional is for those who never pray because they think their prayers aren't received, and prayer doesn't work. This devotional is for the person who has a weak and inconsistent prayer life; For the person who's been praying fervently for deliverance or a blessing and is losing faith that their prayer will get answered.
"And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." Matthew 21:22 (NKJV)
