Scripture says, “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (James 5:16), and that the “eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer” (1 Peter 3:12; Psalm 34:15), and, again, “the prayer of the upright pleases Him” (Proverbs 15:8). Prayer saved the righteous Daniel from the lion’s den (Daniel 6:11), and in the wilderness, God’s chosen people benefited from Moses’ right standing with God (Exodus 16–17). The barren Hannah’s steadfast and humble prayers resulted in the prophet Samuel (1 Samuel 1:20), and the apostle Paul’s prayers even caused the earth to shake (Acts 16:25-26). Clearly, the passionate prayers of God’s righteous children can accomplish much (Numbers 11:2).
Prayer changes things! Prayer is more powerful than anything physical. Prayer can’t be arrested. Prayer can’t be drowned or thrown away. Prayer can’t be hidden or kept silent. Prayer can’t be stopped! It’s the invisible force of God in your life. And you have access to it every minute of every day. You have this power 24 hours a day. You have the ability to change things! You’re a walking keg of power and you’re ready to blow up the works of the devil wherever you go. That’s the kind of power that we have. That’s the miraculous power of prayer!
