Topic: The Secret of Power [Saturday February 11, 2017]
Scripture: The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:17b.
Thought for The Day: The hour of prayer is the hour of power.
Power is needed in life to fulfil destiny and surmount obstacles. It takes power to subdue the works of darkness. The tragedy of our generation is not the powerfulness of the devil but the powerlessness of the saints. To bring the power of darkness under control, you need the power of God.
One major secret of power is Prayer. Men of prayer are men of power. In Acts chapter 3, Peter went to the temple at the time of prayer and met a crippled man by the gate. He demonstrated the power of God and the man rose up and walked. You see, the hour of prayer is the hour of power.
Elijah is another example of a man of unusual power because of prayer. He connected Divine power and changed the climate and weather; he had power to subdue the principalities of a territory because of prayer.
Beloved, prayer is the secret of power. This is why a prayerless Christian is a powerless Christian. The reverse is true; a prayerful Christian is a powerful Christian. Make up your mind to pray in order to connect the power of God.
Remember this: The hour of prayer is the hour of power.
