From Chapter one of “The Amazing Power of Prayer.”
I’m not going to tell you that you will get everything you want through prayer. No, I’m going to tell you about something even better.. You will get everything God wants for you through prayer because God wants the best for you. He wants even better things for you than you do. God loves you much more than you love yourself and wants you to have joy and peace even more than you do. You will get everything you want through prayer if it is God’s will and you have faith.
Yes, it’s true: You will experience powerful answers to prayer if you use the guidelines for prayer found in the Bible. We’ll explore these guidelines as we travel this prayer journey together. It is said we use less than 10% of our brainpower; but I think it’s very safe to say that most Christians use less than 10% of their prayer power. I have been in many churches across the United States and I find that most people don’t understand the power of prayer. Why is it that some churches see remarkable answers to prayer and others do not? Perhaps you know some Christians who have very powerful prayer lives. Yet others, who seem to be “good Christians”, do not. Those believers with powerful prayer lives have learned and practice what the Bible says about how to have a powerful prayer life. After you read this book, you’ll know the secret, too.
God doesn’t want powerful prayer to be a secret. He wants your prayers to be powerful and He wants you to experience good things as a result of those prayers. I believe with all my heart that God put us here on earth for a reason. The reason is to glorify God and to love him. Hebrews 11:6 tells us: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he REWARDS (my emphasis) those who earnestly seek him.” We glorify God and please Him when we seek Him through prayer. But to really glorify Him, we need powerful prayer. read more
