Whether you like it or not, willing or not, the decisions that we make in our daily life mostly influenced by what happens in the spiritual realm. Look carefully at these verses
1 Peter 5:7-8, Galatians 5:19-21, Romans 8:5, Hebrews 11:3, Ephesians 1:3, Job 4:15.
The Holy Spirit works in such a way to convince us with this truth, because this is what
gives us conviction of faith that there is nothing impossible for God. In the physical realm, there are a lot of things that are difficult to be reached, overcome or changed.
Human efforts that we do oftentimes create a lot of collisions and pretty bad negative
impact. So if we can move in the spirit accordingly, then we will see, change in the
physical realm can happen just like that without any painful collisions. I discover, the tool for us to move in the spirit can be done through the power of prayer.
James 5:13-16 (NIV) Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
James 5:17-18 (NIV) Elijah was a human being, even as we are. 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.
- Through prayer we can give divine influence to people who have hardened their
hearts and do not want to change.
Those people are usually difficult for us to reach with words because it will
always end up with unnecessary ‘collisions or disputes’. Through the power of prayer, we can send divine influences to change the concept of thought, attitude and lifestyle.
- Through prayer we can ‘be the spark’ for miracles and divine intervention against
negative data and facts that we have been facing.
So the things that has been difficult or impossible can be solved easily only by
the power of prayer!
- Believe it or not, nature can change through prayer.
That’s what happened to Elijah when he prayed according to what he heard from
God’s mouth, so the elements of nature obeyed God’s Word.
I feel, there are many things that we can overcome with the power of prayer. It’s
just a matter of ‘believe or not’. When we give proper weight to the power of
prayer, we will experience the impact of the power of prayer itself.
Many people will continue to ‘mock and underestimate the power of prayer’, but the Holy Spirit confirms: Continue to stay courageous by believing that the power of prayer will once again play an important role in bringing about change and restoration of all things.
