Let's talk about the Power of Prayer


Hello there, Friend

Welcome to another blog! Today we're going to dive deep into the incredible Power of Prayer.


I hope that you are doing well, and I trust that today's topic will serve as an uplifting source of encouragement for you. Let's embark on a journey to reignite our prayer lives and discover the great impact that it can have on our spiritual well-being. I will try and break the info down into little chunks to help us process better.


Exploring Our Core Beliefs Around Prayer:

At times, the mere mention of the word "prayer" can seem daunting or burdensome, leaving us feeling unmotivated or skeptical about its impact. Trust me, I've been there too. It's natural to question whether a simple prayer can truly make a difference in our lives or circumstances.

As Christians, we often find ourselves telling others, "I'll pray for you," but do we truly follow through? Is it merely a comforting phrase we offer, or do our prayers genuinely uplift and support those around us? These questions and doubts can easily creep into our minds, and in the mean time hinder our prayer life.



Unleashing the Power of Prayer:

Let me assure you that there is immense power in the name of Jesus, and prayer is the key that unlocks it. Prayer is like a muscle—it requires training and practice. The more we engage in prayer, the more it becomes an integral part of our lives. It moves from being perceived as a mere task to becoming an essential and transformative practice.


Jesus, the Lover of Our Souls:

Remember, Jesus is deeply interested in every aspect of our lives. He longs to hear our struggles, our joys, and even the smallest details we might consider insignificant. Opening our hearts to Him through prayer allows us to experience His unconditional love and unwavering support.


The Journey Begins by Putting Pen to Paper:

I want to encourage you to take the first step towards a more vibrant prayer life by writing down your prayers. Make notes of specific dates when you began praying about a particular matter. Write the date down again when those prayers are answered.



You will quickly realize when you look back that God is faithful to answer the smallest things that we so quickly forget about. You'll be astonished to see how many answered prayers there actually are! He is faithful.


Navigating the Prayer with a Guiding Resource:

If you feel unsure of where to begin or seek guidance to deepen your prayer life, fear not! I have discovered a remarkable resource that has greatly impacted me and countless others. During training for a mission trip, our team came across a series of short YouTube videos presented by Pete Greig, the founder of the 24/7 prayer movement.

These videos, each approximately 20 minutes long, beautifully break down the steps and essential aspects of prayer. They cover topics such as the purpose of prayer, adoration, petition, intercession, unanswered prayers, contemplation, listening, and spiritual warfare. I highly recommend investing your time in watching these enlightening videos. It helped me so much to not just have a list of things that I bring to God all the time, but to actually adore Him and worship Him for who He is and not what He can do for me.


To wrap up, prayer holds immeasurable power, waiting to be unlocked within your life. Embrace this incredible spiritual discipline, and see how it transforms your perspective. As you embark on this journey, may you find renewed inspiration, a deeper connection with Jesus, and the joy of answered prayers!


Blessings,

Jana
