POWER IN PRAYER
TEXT: PHILIPPIANS 4:4-7
BIBLE TEXT: Philippians 4:4-7
Charles Spurgeon postulated that "True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is far deeper than that -it is a spiritual transaction with the Creator of Heaven and Earth." This comment about prayer is quite instructive. Prayer is a spiritual exercise. It is talking with God as a child does with his or her earthly father. The Bible contains promises which cover every aspect of our lives. Jesus advises His disciples to always pray and not to faint or be discouraged. Prayerlessness leads to murmuring, complaining, and defeat. The Bible has records of youths who were prayerful and succeeded in their Christian lives. Young people like Daniel, Jabez, and David were known for prayers. God answered their prayers and that is why we can still hear about them today. There is power in prayer to bring down solutions to your problems. Are you facing challenges in school, home, or place of work? Spend quality time talking to God about your needs and He will surely answer you. Make all your requests known to your Heavenly Father who cares about you.
Challenge: Pray until you breakthrough.
Prayer: Lord, teach me how to pray.
Quote: There is power in prayer.
