The Wonderful Power of Prayer

Updated on February 16, 2017

Beautiful Sunrise

Pray With Devotion

It’s good to pray. Prayer makes one feel a whole lot better, and it lifts one’s soul sky high. It really does. Anyone can pray. One can say a short prayer, using only a couple of words, or one can say a long prayer, using a whole lot of words. The amount of words doesn’t matter to God. What does matter is the sincerity of your heart when you say a prayer. God always sees straight into one’s heart. Prayer calms one’s mind, and it does wonders for one’s soul. Pray with devotion and worship God during prayer, and as you pray, trust in God. Choose a quiet place to pray, a place free from disturbance, and zealous activity. Put your hands together, and close your eyes, and speak to God. Let the words come naturally. Just relax, and let every word flow straight from your heart. It’s as if you’re speaking to a friend, because God is a true friend, and He is also your wonderful heavenly Father. When you pray, you can ask God to lead you through each and everyday, and He will. If you are worried about something in your life, then tell God all about it, and He will help you. He may not help you right away, because He may want to test your faith, so just keep on praying with diligence and perseverance.

God's Creatures

Blessings Come With Prayer

Pray With Faith

Never give up, and never lose faith. If you pray for a miracle in your life, then hold on tight and keep on praying, because God is a God of miracles, and He might just send a miracle your way. Miracles happen every day, so pray, and pray some more. You can also pray for world peace, and for your country, and for underprivileged people, and for your family members, and you can pray to thank God for all that you have, and you can also ask God to roll every single stumbling block out of your way. You can ask God absolutely anything during prayer. God does answer prayers. In His own time. The more you pray, the easier it feels. Pour your heart out to God during prayer. Having a prayer relationship with your heavenly Father is simply wonderful, and it’s also something so special and beautiful. He will bless you as you walk along your life’s path, and He will smile down upon you with tenderness. He will love you unconditionally, and you will feel that love. Try to go to prayer meetings as often as you can. If you pray, and ask God for something, ask for it in the name of Jesus Christ. God is powerful and merciful, and He really listens to all your prayers. If you are feeling down in the dumps, or if someone broke your heart, then pray, and know that God will lift you up. He is a great healer of broken hearts. Regular prayer brings comfort and happiness, and it also gives one a great sense of well-being.

Keep The Faith

Time spent in prayer is time cleverly spent. God wants you to always stay close to Him, and the best way to do that is by praying. If you pray, you can walk joyfully in the light of God’s love. It’s totally awesome when one experiences the wonderful power of prayer.

Praying is a great way to pamper your soul. While you pray, just trust in the Lord’s immense love for you, and believe that there is light at the end of your dark tunnel, so just rest your head, and be assured that the good Lord will lift you up again. Also, while you pray, the Lord’s light will surround you totally, and He who is so almighty, will watch over you, not just now, but for always and forever. Isn’t that wonderful?

Believe And You Will Receive

God Answers Prayers

“With God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16)

I prayed to God once a week for a couple of years, and there were days that I was so busy, that I didn’t have the time to pray, but then I made the time, and I never gave up. I prayed with persistence, and total devotion, and I also prayed diligently, while holding onto my faith. Sixteen years later, God answered my prayers, and I’m smiling again. So that is why I’m a firm believer in the absolute astounding and wonderful power of prayer, and I can say with a joyful heart, “Just pray.”

Hold Onto Hope
