Todays date is May 2nd, 2019. It is the date of national prayer in the United States. Let us all renew our faith, and also be reside to His will. These are some verses from the bible that explains why prayer is so powerful in our daily lives.
Ask and it shall be given you;Seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asketh recieveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened ( Matthew 7:7-8)
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.( Jeremiah 33:3)
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us( Ephesians 3:20)
When we pray, besides keeping Jesus in our heart, we must be grateful and also we must not cherish sinful desires. According to the Psalmist, if we posses any sinful desire, the Lord will not hear us.
Another point worthy of remembering is that it takes time for our prayer request to be answered by God. Human vision is so limited and therefore it is wisest to wait for God to answer when his wisdom sees it fit.
