Prayer Is My Superpower
I cannot fly or leap over tall buildings but I have another superpower…PRAYER!
When I pray the prayer of repentance from a sincere heart. I am promised eternal life. I live forever, I NEVER DIE! Now that’s superpower!
I am in a war with unseen forces. With prayer I can stop the forces of darkness, speak against generational curses and command them to be broken; I can change the course of my life! I can speak life to dead situations. Don’t believe me? Ask Lazarus who was brought back to life after being dead for three days! That is superpower!
I can pray for the sick to be healed. Don’t believe me? Ask the woman who constantly bled for 12 years. She spent all of her money going to doctors but they could not heal her. However, after touching the hem of Jesus’ garment she was immediately healed. I also have my own personal testimonies from my last two children Isaiah and Faith. They were both in need of healing, we prayed and Jesus answered. That is superpower!
Prayer coupled with praise can free us from the prison the devil tries to put us in. Don’t believe me? Ask Paul and Silas. They did not complain or hold a pity party when they were imprisoned for the sake of Christ. They PRAYED and PRAISED which broke their chains and set them free! That is superpower!
Prayer allows me to transcend my natural circumstance and enter a state of contentment and true joy. I never have to worry about anything. When I pray according to God’s will there is an overflow of confidence that He hears me and it is done.
If all of the above is not super enough. In prayer the one who created the universe, speaks to me PERSONALLY! He tells me His heart and His will. Don’t believe me? Ask Abraham. The sins of Sodom and Gomorrah were great and God shared His intentions to destroy these cities with Abraham. In this dialogue, Abraham is given the opportunity to intercede for Lot and his family. That is superpower!
Is prayer your super power? What miraculous things have happened in your life as a result of prayer?
