Power of Prayer

Prayer. So simple. And yet, so hard.

Why?

We make it hard. Especially when we think it all depends on us. How we do it. When we do it. Why we do it

We’ve got to get over ourselves when it comes to prayer.

This quote from Max Lucado says it all: “The power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.”

We can feel like our prayers don’t matter or aren’t “right” but that’s not the point.

Our prayers make a difference in us as we let go and trust in God.

Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians is for us too.

14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. 16 I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, 17 and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. 18 I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow as we welcome our friend Rev. Dr. Larron Jackson. Larron will share a word from Luke 11:1-3 and the power of relying on God (not ourselves.) It won’t be the same without you.

Grace be with you,

Vikki
