The Power Of Prayer
“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection.., Philippians 3:10, NKJV
Let this verse be our prayer today and every day. That we might know Him and that we might know, or experience, His power in our lives.
That we might experience His power in our lives. This would give us the power to live above the circumstances rather than living under the circumstances.
That we might experience His peace in our lives. This would give us the power to live at peace with others, ourselves, and to be at peace with God.
That we might experience His purpose for our lives. This would give us the power to fulfill the purpose for which He has saved us.
This power and the effects from it are not just automatically dumped on us when we are saved. We must pray for that kind of power, as Paul the Apostle was doing in this verse. We must seek for that kind of power that comes only from knowing Him more fully. We must live in a way that He would want to give us that kind of power so that we might bring to Him more Glory.
He has given three tools that we can use to realize the power in our life. First, He has given us His Word. Second, He has given us prayer. Third, He has given to us His church. God help us to use all three so that we may know HIM more fully and live in that power every day. Thank You Jesus!
