A CHRISTIAN BIBLE BELIEVING CHURCH
Prayer is a part of divine promise.
Psalm 145:18 (KJV)
18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
B. Power Of Prayer - How powerful is it?
Lack of Power in prayer comes from lack of prayer. Satan trembles when the weakest of saint falls upon their knees in earnest prayer. If anyone is cognizant of power of prayer it is the devil.
1) Power in prayer comes from the life behind the prayer!
William H. Horner said, Righteous living; 2) Faith in God; 3) Guidance of the Holy Spirit; 4) and seeking the will of God or necessary for Power in Prayer.
S.D. Gordan in His book, Quiet Times On Prayer, said, 1) Prayer must be in Jesus Name; 2) by a person in full touch with Jesus, heart, habits, and life; 3) In harmony with teachings of the Bible; 4) Confident -done in faith believing
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 (KJV)
13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Does God answer all prayers?
Answer Yes! God answers prayer Always: YES, NO, WAIT. Does He hear sinners? Yes! He answers according to His will.
Prayer is a necessity! Why? It is a commandment!
1) To honor God; 2) Discharge our office as Priest; 3) To avail ourselves of privileges;
4) Obligation as believers; 5) Overcome powers of evil; 6) Grow in grace and godliness;
7) seek and save souls of men.
Prayer is a weapon of defense (against the wiles of the devil) and our weapon of offense for strength and power to do the will of our God. The power of prayer should not be underestimated.
It easy to pray when we realize I am helpless and need God's strength and wisdom. Phil 4:13through Christ Jesus; Jn. 15:5 without me.
Pray brings healing
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16 (KJV)
COVID-19, God is still in charge and on the throne!

Lack of prayer in Church, lack of prayer among the saints has left an anemic an lethargic church. I feel sometimes we spend a lot of time studying prayer but we don't spend enough time in prayer.
The power of prayer is undeniable to those who pray regularly. True stories of prayer making a difference in a moment, a life, or the world inspire each of us to examine and strengthen our faith life regularly.
A. What is Prayer?
A definition: It is and offering up of our desires unto God, for the things that are agreeable to His will in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins and thankful acknowledge of our mercies.
Simply a Prayer is communicating with God. It's dialogue not a monologue! Make your request and see what God would have you do!
1. Prayer is an act of Homage it is giving the Lord the Glory due His name.
2. It is worship
3. Obedience to command
Luke 18:8...man ought always to pray. Man's character is formed by prayer. Prayer is not for us to ask what we wish of Him, but what God wishes of us.
Matthew Henry, list five facets of prayer, 1) adoration, 2) confession , 3) petition,
4) thanksgiving, and 4) intercession.
There was separation between God and man after the fall and no one called on God until Enos was born. The Bible say, Genesis 4:26 (KJV)
26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. Remember man had unbroken communion with God until He fell.
The Bible is filled with men and women that prayed earnestly laid hold of God and God laid hold of them.
Abraham; Elijah; Jacob; Hannah; David; Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah; Daniel; Mary; and Jesus to name a few.
1) Prayer purifies the prayer, sanctifies the supplicant 2) Prayer brings open rewards.
