The Power of Prayer

Scripture: John 16 v 15

"All things that the Father hath are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine and show it unto you."

- Jesus wants us to learn a deeper truth about prayer today. He wants us to expect the Father to reveal things to us that need prayer and ministry.

- Jesus within our hearts owns everything that Our Father has. When we are struggling with problems we pray superficially for those needs to be met. We need to ask for a revelation from God for the spiritual blockage behind our problem.

- For example, your problem may be Cancer in you or a family member. All the doctors and chemo have not eliminated it. Cancer grows on a spirit within you called Bitterness. Its only when you discover who you need to forgive, and do it, that you can be delivered of bitterness and be healed of Cancer.

- You may be struggling financially. This could be caused by a generational curse. The sins of the fathers are visited to the 3rd and 4th generation. If one of your ancestors was a con man or thief it could result in poverty in your life. Pray for the Lord to forgive that thief and release your finances from that curse.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, these are just two examples of things that bind us, please help us pray intelligently and ask You to reveal what lies behind our problems. There is power in praying into the depth of our needs and we love You for Your help. Amen.
