Things you must do to receive transformation in your life and circumstances, the Power of Prayer - Prayer Tents

Power of Prayer

and how you can receive answers to your prayers

Prayer is powerful. Through prayer, God allows the unexpected to happen. You can be healed, restored, blessed.

However, there is a caveat. Prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. Prayers of the righteous are what can change your life (those that have a right relationship with God and others; those that have their faith in Jesus Christ - See Gospel 101).

When the righteous pray, you will see a transformation in your life as well as in your circumstances.

Be willing to submit to God when you pray to receive an answer

Who receives answers to prayers? Those with a contrite heart, those that are willing to give up themselves (self-reliance), and fully trust in God. God of all creation will demand a response from you, and that demand is obedience. You can see throughout Scriptures people that have given up their way of doing things to follow God, and their prayers were answered, and their lives (and even their circumstances) were significantly transformed to be better than what it was before (consider Abraham, David, disciples of Jesus). God will demand the same from you.

Think of it this way, you are trying to reach a destination, the path that is the best for your life. However, you do not know how to get there. You are trying to reach it based on your own hunches, but you are going the wrong way because you simply do not know. If someone knew the way (while you obviously do not), would it not make sense for you to submit to Him and His guidance? If you feel you need to be headstrong and ignore the advice, you can certainly continue on the wrong way; however, if you give up your self-dependence, and trust this Guide to walk you through the complicated journey of life, you’ll end up where it is best for you. This is what you call obedience, giving up your old ways (also known as 'repentance'), and trusting God (having faith). How can He bless you (your business, your marriage, your children’s future, etc.) if you hang on to your old way of doing things? He simply can’t.

Jesus is this good guide, and He will certainly answer your deepest longings, your deepest needs. The question is, will you submit and trust Him as He leads you? When you come for prayer, have the heart to submit fully to Him. (If this is hard for you, make this your prayer request). He truly knows you and He wants to guide you to the best path for your life.

Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. (James 5:15-16)

The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God. (Psalm 51:17)

Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. (Luke 9:23-24)
