THE POWER OF YOUR PRAYERS
The power of your prayers avails much. When I was a child I never knew of this great power, but I knew that my Mother was a praying woman. She taught me the Lord’s Prayer as I kneel down beside her at night. She taught me how to say the grace before I would eat my food, but still I did not know the power of the prayers I was sending up. As I grew up and became a teenager she made sure that I read my Bible and learn certain scriptures, memorized them and recited them often. Still I never knew the power in what my Mother was teaching me.
A few years ago my Mother had a stroke and was unable to walk after spending much time in the hospital. The doctors sent her home. My Mother fail into a deep depression and the family call me to come home and be with my Mother because they thought she was about to past on to glory. I lived about three hours away, so I immediately rush there to be at my Mother’s bedside alone with many of our other family members. I saw my Mother in a deep depressed state that I had never seen her in before. Later that afternoon we gather all the family around her and I prayed for my Mother. After a short prayer everyone left and went outside on the deck except my sister and I. We stayed at my Mothers’ side and begin to pray another prayer with my Mother. My sister joined in and then I heard my Mothers’ voice begin to speak directly to God. The three of us were calling out to God for His mercy and favor that moment. I heard my Mother pray that day like I had never heard her pray before.
Then, a few moments after we had cease seeking God’s favor and praising him for his mercy and grace, my sister said to my Mother, “Mom,” get up and walk! My Mother immediately got up and walked like nothing had ever happen to her. She walked with a smile on her face with grace, for all the family to be a witness to, some of which had not found the Lord as their Savior. My Mother continued to walk with that same grace until she was called home to glory a few years later.
That Sunday afternoon, I was a witness to the power of prayer. All that my Mother had taught me concerning prayer had manifested itself right in front of my eyes and the rest of the community that she lived in to be a witness to the power of prayer. I tell you this story because for those of you who do not know the real power in your prayers and others who have never been a witness to God answering your prayers, just keep on praying. Because God is a prayer answering God, and even if you have never truly witness his mighty power, know that by your faith he is continuing doing what he said he would do. There are many supernatural occurrences happening all over the world today because of the many prayers that each of you are sending up. When prayers go up, blessings do come down.
Now in conclusion, I say to you, “Never underestimate the power of intercessory prayer.” Those of you who pray regularly and persistently for the strength and growth of others will be blessed with a supernatural miracle taking place some place in the world in someone’ life. There is truly power in prayer. I bless this word to you this day, that you may bless someone with your prayer blessing. I remain your brother in Jesus Christ, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher!
