Do You Believe Prayer Works?

James 5:
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit. NKJV

My question to you is very simple. Do you believe that prayer works? Do you believe that fervent prayer works better? Do you believe that God is listening to the prayers of his people?

These are very serious questions to ponder. Many of us speak about prayer but we never seem to pray. This is a fact. We talk a good story...but as you is cheap. DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT PRAYER WORKS?
If you REALLY believe that prayer works, WHY do you not pray? I understand that prayer is not easy. I understand that it is hard to focus your attention to the needs of others. I understand that it is hard to find time to make this commitment. I understand that you have many cares and problems that require your attention. I understand that live sometimes breaks you down.

God has the answer! God is the answer! Are you looking for miracles, signs, and wonders? Do you think about the Apostles and the power they had? If you have the Holy Spirit you have the POWER to do anything the Apostles were able to do. You just have to stir up the gift that is within you and go for it! This is your moment. I challenge you to become a PRAYER WARRIOR! Go For It!

You choose the live you live. No one makes these choices for you. You choose the life you live. Stop allowing your life to run you and react to life as it happens to you. YOU make the choice to change your world. Do it through prayer!
