The power of prayer

Hebrews 4:16
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

God knows you. He knew you before you were even born. He knows your strengths, weaknesses, needs and wants. God is all knowing and his wisdom is beyond anything we can even imagine. He would not honor any request that would injure or harm you or disgrace His name. He wants the best for you and everyone else. What a comfort!

Remember that Jesus has left promises for all of us. He has ascended into Heaven and is now at the right hand of God making intercession for us. We have power in prayer because prayer can do anything that God can do!

God is able to do all things that are true to His nature and character. For that reason we shouldn’t expect God to help us do something wrong because He cannot sin. Sometimes we feel that our prayers aren’t being heard because we don’t get the answer we think we should. We have to remember that our wisdom is not the wisdom of God. Be strong knowing there is power in prayer and God will work out all things for the good of all who love Him.
