“A Powerful Prayer”
Probably we have all heard the declaration, “There is Power in Prayer” Many of us have experienced prayers’ power.
I invite you to read the following verses and consider powerful prayer.
23 On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them.
24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:
“‘Why do the nations rage and the people’s plot in vain? 26 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One.’
27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. 28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
Well, I don’t know about you, but nothing quite like this has happened after any of my prayers.
However, if you keep track of your prayers, recording the Lord’s answers to your prayers, you might notice some powerful results.
The Christian faith itself has shaken the world and the people who live in it.
So keep praying. Never underestimate the power of prayer. We pray and let the Lord God do the shaking up of people and the things of this world.
Be Blest, Be a Blessing.
