The Power Of Prayer

By Princess Arira

Prayer is one of the basic places a believer exercises his authority. By prayer we bring finality to situations, there’s no finality until you’ve prayed. The Greek word for prayer is PROSEUCHE (Luke 19) it means to worship, an oratory, to pray earnestly and the word Proseuche has its root from PROSEUCHEMAI which means to pray to God, to supplicate, to worship, to pray earnestly. Proseuchemai was used 73times in the New testament, let me give you some examples Mat 17:21, 21:22, 9:26, 11:17, Luke 6:12 etc.

Whoever you pray with and pray for, your heart binds easily with., supplication (Greek word DEESIS) means to entreaty I.e to seek favour or invoke favour (Phi 4:6), it also means to make petition. prayer is effectual when it is prayed fervently and continually. Paul admonished us to pray without ceasing (1 Thes 5:17) praying without ceasing simply means uninterruptedly, and the Greek word is ADIALEIPTOS this simply means without an appropriate occasion for prayer without an omission.  The closer you get to the men that God has placed over your life (Ephesians 4:11 That is the 5 fold ministry., Apostle, prophets, Evangelist, pastor and Teacher) the more discerning you become.

God always answers prayer, and prayer works all of the time. The right to pray and receive answers to our prayer is a part of our inheritance, don’t use other people’s experience as  your yardstick to override your expectations in prayer. Prayer prayed out of fear is not to God but to Satan cos praying in fear means you are putting so much confidence in the devil’s ability to do what he promised to do to you that would put you in trouble.
The believers should not be engrossed with a conversation with the devil but the word of God that gives life, a believer should be an incurable optimist in life. The most powerful weapon into your heart is your mouth cos what you say with your mouth has core power that what anyone says about you and what God is saying to you (Mark 11:33)


 Importance of prayer
 Fellowship (Acts 6:4):

Fellowshipping with the father is a continuous thing, and it is impossible for a believer to loose fellowship with the father. The sins of a believer does not break the relationship with them and God. Worldly sorrow is condemnation but godly sorrow is the Holy ghost working in you. A praying man cannot be a sinning man and a sinning man cannot be a praying man. Prayer is for fellowship 1cor 1:9, phi 1:19


Prayer Helps Us To Stay In God’s Plan ( Mark 1:35, Luke 11:1).

Your desires should be put in a place of prayer. As we pray we align with divine plans and purposes, without prayers you will walk in your own understanding.  prayer helps us to recognise and discern the will of God. Ability to recognise the voice and to know what you are hearing is sensitivity, whatever is birthed in prayer will be sustained in prayer forever.


Prayer Breeds Discipline

There are some things that will never happen unless you pray, when you pray you are executing the judgement that has been written. Prayer is not fun but its fundamental. There are no coincidences in the life of a believer, the more you give yourself to prayer, the more you build capacity. There is no exploit that any man has done in prayer that we can’t do as believers. In prayer the believer is more vulnerable the Holy ghost that is already in you.

 Appropriate Occasions To Pray

 Nudging of the spirit

Pray when u are led by the Holy ghost. Prayer is an opportunity to know what you didn’t know before.

Your regular prayer time that you have fixed.

When there is a crisis (Phi 4:6).

The gathering of the saints ( Acts 1:14, 2:42, 1Tim 2:8).

What prayer do for us
Prayer presents us an opportunity to know what you never knew before.
Prayer presents us an opportunity to change things.
Prayer presents us an opportunity to know what God’s will is in a particular situation.

    You can’t remove prayer from the life of a believer because prayer is everything.

    Prayer works 100% all the time. When we pray we generate power., a praying man can never be a sinning man and a sinning man can never be a praying man.
