Do You Trust Prayer?
Philippians 1:19 – For I know that as you pray for me and the Spirit of Jesus Christ helps me, this will lead to my deliverance
Many believers don’t pray because for some reason, they don’t believe that prayer works. The truth is when most people pray, they pray as a response to religious obligation to do the act, and most time are double minded. For some people, it’s almost as though they are casting lots, so they pray telling themselves that it may or may not work, so it’s almost like gambling for them, when it works, they rejoice, if it doesn’t work, they either relent, or resort to human effort which proves that they never trusted the power in prayer anyway.
One word that is very synonymous with prayer is faith. If you don’t believe that prayer would work then it won’t. One act that proves that you trust in the power of prayer is the continued and fervent engagement in prayer. In our key scripture, Apostle Paul was clear that he trusted the power of prayer. He was clear about it, and extremely sure of the results he will see after prayer was made for him. There was no doubt or shadow to the fact that prayer would yield results. We all need to get to that point were we trust that Gods power would flow when we pray.
2 Thessalonians 3:1 – Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you
Do you know the reason why Apostle Paul could boldly ask them to pray these prayers. It’s because he already knew the results. He knew that praying these prayers would definitely produce the results they were praying for. You need to be that way. Prayer produces result, so pray and keep praying, and watch God’s power flow in your life.
I walk by faith, and I pray, day and night. Through my prayers I get transformed, and Gods power flows through me, amen.
