Is there Power in Prayer?

How and what to pray? 

Is there power in persisting, prevailing prayer?


Praying to our Heavenly Father, in the beautiful name of our Saviour, the LORD Jesus Christ.

For He dearly loves His children, our FATHER DELIGHTS IN OUR PRAYERS.

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? 

Luke 11:9-13



NEVER forget the GOD FACTOR in our every day!

The LORD alone can bring good out of evil.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: 

how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Note it says to ask for the Spirit of God.

WHY? This is the question that filled my heart as read this passage in the chapters for today (in Luke, reading my Bible through for 2021). 😊

Why ask for the Holy Spirit? 

Then light 💡 came, I realised it’s needful indeed.

As believers, followers of the LORD Jesus Christ, we already have the indwelling of the Spirit of the Living God, but how often He is quenched, by sin filled walk and hearts.

So I’m to be wise steward of time given.

Redeeming the time for the days are evil. Watching, alert, vigilant.

Pray regularly and earnestly that He, the Holy Spirit of the Living God, may GUIDE, DIRECT US ARIGHT.

IN PRAYER, am I too busy rattling off what I want, or think?

… or am I waiting quietly, seeking Him, the still small voice?

And asking for His help, His light on a matter? 

Watching unto prayer! 

Deep, meaningful prayer as well as the regular, quick, short, urgent requests. 

There are various aspects of prayer - ALL ARE NEEDED.

A short post, but am burdened dear ones, as we live in sin filled world.

So many lies, rumours, innuendoes and deceits, time stealers.

The father of lies, our adversary the devil is as roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. 

Let him not devour the good gifts our God has given us, time, our strength, our wisdom. 

Am I as much in the Word of God, and prayer, as in watching a screen of some sort?

We must anchor our hearts in the word of God, praying without ceasing.

It takes effort. 

But remember..  no, never ever alone.

Be mindful of the God factor! He will never leave us nor forsake us.

(Hymn here if not showing, new to me but how I loved it)

 Be alert, vigilant, aware, informed, but covering it all in prayer, with the earnest of the Spirit of God… 

Pray for Holy Spirit guidance and light today, every day. 

There are three persons in the trinity. All are equal, one God.  

Looking unto Jesus, walking By FAITH not by SIGHT.

Prayer should be an absolute essential in our Christian walk, Shaz. May we not only petition God, but stop to listen to how He is speaking to our hearts.
Blessings to you!

Wonderful words in this post. How can anyone face each day in this world today without prayer. Starting the day with a talk with the Lord is the only way to have peace and security. Hugs.

How important prayer is - this is such a vital post Shaz, and yes, prayer 'comes' in many forms and at many times.
Stay safe precious sister

Good Morning dear Shaz,
This is such a timely post my dear sister. Time spent with the Lord is never wasted as many think prayer is. He will be with us and listen to us, but we need to stop and take the time to listen to him as well.
This world is not my home, I'm just passing through. Thank Heaven that God has made a place for us, away from this world full of evil.
Thank you for the song, it's one of my favorites.
Blessings and love,

Prayer is good throughout the day and I enjoy singing music when the radio or CD is playing. I listened to Andre' Rieu Jolly Holiday CD while making dinner this evening. Many hymns on that one as well. I need to pray more through the day though. Pray without ceasing! I enjoyed the song you shared. I'd not heard it but do like it! I appreciate your posts, my friend. God bless and keep you safe and well!
