Prayer can be powerful, yet most of us do far too little of it. WE NEED to be ENDUED with power I believe that Christian power ALWAYS begins with prayer. Certainly the Holy Spirit is all the power we need, but Prayer is the access to the power of God! What Power is in prayer? It can change the outlook,it can influence surroundings and it can bring hope. Prayer, or a form of prayer, is done in almost all religions. Moments of silence are a replacement of prayer in our society. Eastern Meditation is sometimes replacing prayer in the lives of some people. BUT if you are praying, even in faith, to a god who isn't God... you are wasting your time and your efforts! BUT worse than wasting time, you arouse the anger of the Living God. But prayer in the name of Jesus, in the authority of Jesus, is a whole different ball game!!! The power of prayer in Christ can change our outlook, influence our surroundings, bring hope, vanquish our enemies, invites God into our situations, delivers us into the throne room, or USHERS us into the Presence of God! There is power in prayer when it is in Jesus Christ!
