Acts 4:31—And when they had prayed the place was shaken where they were assembled together.
As powerful as God is, he cannot answer prayers until they’re prayed. Prayer is the only way to get God’s power released into your life. Prayer is the secret to power with God. Daniel was thrown to the lions because his prayer life terrorized the demonized bureaucrats of Babylon. He pierced the darkness with prayer. Elijah prayed and fire fell from heaven. If that ever starts happening in your prayer life, it won’t be boring, I guarantee you. In the early days of the church, they prayed until the building shook. Moses prayed, and as long as his hands were held up, Israel won the war. The moment his hands came down, Israel lost the war. The point is this? What you do on the ground in prayer is what God can do in the heavens. The moment you stop praying is the moment God’s power stops. Your prayer is the secret of releasing God’s power in your life. Jesus had a powerful prayer life; He prayed all night many nights. And after He had prayed all night, then came the signs and wonders.
You can pray with supernatural knowledge when you have a prayer relationship with God. Answered prayer is not a miracle; it’s a law. When you take an ice tray and fill it with water and place it in a freezer, if the temperature is 32 degrees or less, the water turns to ice. That is not a miracle. That is a natural law. It’s the only thing that can happen. When you meet God’s conditions in prayer, you will get an answer.
Prayer, and plenty of it, is what America needs today. So lift your hands to the Lord in Prayer, thanksgiving and supplication. Prayer won a battle for Israel. Pray now, pray often and keep praying for the divine resurrection of our great nation. Our prayers’ can pierce the darkness looming over America. America needs your prayers NOW.
New King James Version (NKJV)
16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
