The Importance of Prayer
Have you ever heard this statement, “Dasal-dasal pa, wala rin namang mangyayari!“, or “Kaya walang nangyayari sa atin dahil puro kayo dasal eh!“. Maybe, you also said that before. Here’s the question: What prayer can do?
First, I will say this to you right now: YOU CAN NOT MAKE IT ON YOUR OWN. By the power of prayer, you can make it; however, it’s not you anymore, it is now God will do it for you. Just like what Jesus Christ said:
…apart from me you can do nothing.
– John 15:5
Yes, “bayanihan” will somehow help us, but that’s not enough. What we need is a divine intervention from the Lord in all the things that we do and for those things that we need. Its a matter of prayer that we need.
Second, God is alive. If we know that God is with us. There must be a communication. Prayer is your hotline to talk to God. If you have trials, talk to God, and raise all your questions to Him. If you have needs, open it to God. It is your way to go to God. If you will be confident enough, you can enter to His presence through prayer (Hebrews 4:16).
And lastly, since God is alive, He wants to talk to us. If our spiritual ears become sensitive, you will hear His voice whispering in your ears. And how you will respond? By means of prayer. As what was written above, It’s your communication between you and God. And as we pray, be sensitive in His presence, because He wants to say something to you.
How can your prayers will be more powerful? Share it to others what you are praying for. A best way on sharing your prayers is through you Victory groups.
“For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
– Matthew 18:20
Its a matter of faith why we are praying. When you pray, don’t doubt. Instead, claim it and declare it boldly. And learn to wait patiently for His answers. I tell you this, a single prayer, by faith, you can turn the world upside down.
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.
– Matthew 21:21
