Effective Prayer

that was some prayer

The difference between a BREAKDOWN and a BREAKTHROUGH is–

Effective Prayer

…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. James 5:16 AMP

What Effective Prayer Is To God

The Bible tells us that when Elijah prayed earnestly that it would not rain, it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. _James 5:17

You might be thinking, That must’ve been some prayer! I’d like to learn how to pray like that. So how did Elijah pray “earnestly”? Why was his prayer so effective?

You’ll be surprised to know that his prayer was not a long, intense, sweat-inducing prayer. No dropping to his knees to plead with God for hours or days. Elijah’s earnest prayer was just a simple declaration of faith: “As the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word” (1 Kings 17:1). He simply declared in faith that there would be no rain.

So… can you see that our idea of praying earnestly and effectively is very different from that of God’s? Today, you don’t have to beg God for your miracle, because He is more than willing to meet your need. All you need to do is to trust His grace and speak to your situation in faith. That’s praying earnestly to God. That’s an effective prayer that will produce dynamic, wonderful results!…pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored…
