Power In Prayer

Prayer is faith in action. It is in this act of submission that we exercise our trust in the Father; we lean into Him for understanding and have confidence in His plan. We pray, listen, and align our will with His.

Prayer enables us to build our relationship with The LORD. He already knows us completely and is acutely aware of every need. However, prayer is our means of fellowship with our Creator. Through it, we become more aware of His essence and of His powerful, perfect love for us. Once we know Who we are presenting our requests to, we approach The Throne of Grace with unwavering confidence.

Prayer offers confirmation and strengthens our faith. The more we come to know Him, the evidence of what He accomplishes on our behalf is no longer unseen. We begin to see His intervention and influence in every facet of our lives and find new reasons to praise Him!

Prayer changes our perspective. Through prayer, we are aligning with THE all-powerful, all-knowing, everlasting LORD over all! Though our circumstances may not change, we have peace because we move through it with the eternal Christ lens.

But you, beloved, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit,

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.

John 10:27
My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.

Isaiah 30:21
And whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear this command behind you: "This is the way. Walk in it.”
