The power of prayer intensifies our dependence on God and strengthens our faith. When we pray, we choose to give everything over to God, knowing that His hand will show up in every area of our lives and in those around us.
The act of prayer is what creates our personal relationship with God. We can practice the spiritual discipline of prayer knowing that our requests go to a God who hears us and who invites us to be intentionally involved in His plan. For this reason, we pray knowing that our conversations with the Lord are powerful and can bring about change in our hearts and/or in our circumstances.
There are no levels or tiers, no hierarchy to prayer. We ALL can enter prayer with a posture of trust, openness, and faith, believing that God can do far more than we could even ask or imagine. It’s not about our circumstances; it’s about the stance of our heart.
