Daily Fountain 2017 - The Power Of Prayer Of Faith

Monday March 13

Bible Reading:     James 5: 13 - 20

Topic:         The Power Of Prayer Of Faith

Our passage today shows us clearly the efficacy of prayer in a Christian's life.

Prayer unlocks Heaven's store rooms and lets loose the showers of grace, healing, provisions and many other blessings.

It delivers from the power of sin and the devil.

Prayer that is said in faith draws spiritual strength from the deep well of God's grace.

Elijah was able to control nature because he knew how to commune with God with a concentrated and pure heart. He believed that one with God in prayer is Majority.

This implies that only those who live right before God, those who hate sin with a passion (Prov. 15: 8b) can attract Heaven's attention, prevail over the challenges of life and defeat the kingdom of darkness as Elijah did on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 17: 1; 18: 36 - 40; James 5: 17)

Brethren, when we face crises or incredibly tough situations, let us remember that the same God Who answered the prayer of Elijah is still alive.

All we do is to get right with Him through confession of and repentance from sin (James 5: 16; Psalm 66: 18 - 20), then go down on our knees and pray the prayer of faith

We must persevere in prayer until every barrier is removed and the windows of Heavens are opened.

Pray Until Something Happens (PUSH)

My Father and my Lord, enable me to remember always that "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much", Amen.

Memory verse:   James 5: 16
"Confess your faults one to another, and for one another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much"
