Topic: The Power-Producing Prayer [Thursday May 18, 2017]
Scripture: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Ephesians 6:18.
Thought For The Day: Prayer produces power in the life of a Christian.
It has been established that men and women of prayer are men and women of power. Prayer produces power in the life of a Christian.
One typical example of a man whose prayer life produced power was Paul the Apostle. In 1 Corinthians 14:18, the Bible makes it clear that Paul prayed in tongues more than the whole church of the Corinthians; he was literally praying always. What a mobile prayer dynamo he was!
In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Paul admonished the Thessalonians to pray without ceasing. He was telling them his practice. No wonder, he was a man who exported power, even the power of the Gospel of Christ to the Gentiles to such a point that handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them (Acts 19:12).
Demons were checked out because he prayed in tongues more than every other person in his days. This was a man who was stoned and left to die but woke up and said, ‘Let us go to the next city for crusade.’ (Acts 14:19-20 paraphrased).
Beloved, your life shall produce power as you embark on persistent prayer from today, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Prayer produces power in the life of a Christian.
- Connect the power of God by engaging in a persistent life of Prayer.
Pray according to God’s promises in Scripture.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the grace to prevail with You at the place of prayer, in Jesus’ Name.

Amazing Fact: In terms of flexibility, the tongue beats every other muscle in our body! Because of this flexibility, the tongue is capable of easily manipulating food inside the mouth and is also capable of acting as a natural cleanser for our teeth after a meal.
