There is power in believing prayer. The prayer of faith reaches out into the heavenlies to grab a hold of the Promises of GOD and bring them down from heaven to earth to manifest the Glory and Majesty of the Kingdom of GOD. Our GOD is able to do “...exeedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think according to the power that worketh in us..”. #Ephesians 3:20b. Prayer is the Divine Channel that connects The Power of Heaven to an Individual and the Church. The Old testament saints did many exploits in the name of the Lord because they were people that prayed. Enoch walked with GOD in the Rhythm of The Word of GOD and lined up his life so that His Life was lived according to the Word of The LORD pulsating with the faith of Almighty GOD The creator of Heaven and Earth and all Original Life and Things on the face of the earth. [ #Amos 3:3 a.r.w. #Genesis 5: 21-24 ; #Hebrews 11;6 ;etc ]. Enoch prayed and believed GOD. The Word of GOD quickened Enoch. Enoch walked with GOD and was not. Samson could do nothing until The Spirit of The Lord came upon him. When he was anointed for service he could do Mighty Exploits for the Kingdom of GOD. By faith ,David slew Goliath. Esther could approach the Throne of the king and obtain favour of the King who granted her petition in a time of great need. Deborah The prophetess knew how to approach GOD and knew how to pray the prayer of faith and prayed believing that GOD heard and answered her prayers. The fire in the fiery furnace could not touch the Three Hebrew Boys that refused to bow down to an image.
The Lions in the Lions den could not touch Daniel that refused to bow down to secular legislation that unjustly tried to regulate his prayer life an worship of YAHWEH,The One True GOD. Elijah and Elisha did mighty exploits in obedience to the Word of GOD. By faith, Jonah could face Jerusalem and pray the prayer of faith and be delivered from the belly of the whale and preach his message to the City of Nineveh. The Old Testament saints did many exploits in the name of the Lord because they were people that prayed. Prayer helps an individual praying on their knees or standing upright , to rise and soar above their trials and afflictions with the eagle wings of faith. In John 14:12- 21 , we read : “..Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him...”.
GOD answers the prayer of faith. Faith honours GOD and GOD honours faith.
Faith has no doubt. Faith has no unbelief. Faith has no fear. Faith honours GOD and GOD honours faith. When we pray we must know what we are praying for. What do we desire GOD to do ? Are we praying according to The Will of The LORD ? Are we in tune with The Voice of GOD and synchronized His Divine Purpose and Divine Plan for This Age ? Do we have confidence that what we are praying for is according to The Word of The Lord and in accordance with His Divine Purpose and Divine Plan for This Age ? It is important to pray the prayer of faith. The prayer of faith takes GOD at His Word and is a Petition to God requesting GOD to intervene in a situation or a circumstance that may be a sickness or spiritual bondage or trials and afflictions that individuals go through on their pilgrim journey on earth. Cain and Abel were both religious. GOD honoured the sacrifice of Abel and rejected the sacrifice of Cain. Abel approached GOD in faith believing that GOD required a Blood Sacrifice for The Atonement of Sin. Cain thought that he could approach GOD with a Blood Sacrifice. Cain had no faith in the Word of GOD. Abel had faith. “.. So then Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of GOD..”. #Romans 10:17. To have our prayers answered we must approach GOD the right way in GOD’s Provided Way. We must approach His Throne in The Name of His Son Yeshua Messiah The Lord Jesus Christ. #John 14:14. “..Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord...”. #Romans 5:1-21. Faith honours GOD and GOD honours faith. When we pray we must believe that we have what we ask for. We must have the faith of GOD. [ #Mark 11:22-26 ]. “.. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses...”. Sometimes our problems or trials or testings or afflictions may look difficult to overcome. We need to take our eyes off our problems or trials or testings or afflictions and look with a spiritual eye at The Promises of GOD trusting The Word of The LORD. “ Prayer changes things “. We pray the answer not the problem. We pray in faith not in fear or doubt or unbelief. Our GOD is able to answer believing prayer. Our GOD answers the prayer of faith. Our GOD answers the prayer of the righteous. “..The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much..”. #James 5 :16b. When we are living a peaceful life and serving GOD in the Beauty of Holiness , we have nothing to fear. When we are praying and believing that GOD answers the prayer of faith, we have no doubt in our hearts and minds. There will be no unbelief in our hearts when we allow “..The Word of The LORD to have free course , and to be Glorified ..” in our lives. [ 2 #Thessalonians 3:1b ].
When we are walking right and doing right and living a life worthy of the Gospel we can pray with confidence. We can approach the Throne of Grace with boldness and obtain mercy and help in the time of need. “..Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need...”. #Hebrews 4:16
