PRAYER MAKES POWER AVAILABLE;
“…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]” (James 5:16 AMP).
Have you ever carefully considered the fact that there’s enough power in you to turn any situation around in your favour? This is what James 5:16 indicates. You can change anything because the divine power necessary to cause that change is already inside you; it was deposited in you the moment you received the Holy Spirit into your life: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you…” (Acts 1:8), the word “power” here, refers to the dynamic ability to cause changes.
However, the presence of this power alone doesn’t guarantee its availability. For example, you can be present with someone, but not available to that person. It’s like a man, who, though is in the house, is not available to his wife. He’s in the living-room reading a newspaper and his wife is talking to him, but he’s not listening; he’s present with her but not available to her. This lets us know that being present is not the same as being available. To be available is to have your attention and co-operation.
“So how do I make the power available?” you may ask. The answer is in James 5:16: “…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available…” (AMP). This doesn’t refer to the hurried prayer you do at your dinner table or while rushing to work. Jesus referred to this kind of prayer in Matthew 6:6. It’s done with so much passion and emotion, and for that reason you may have to separate yourself from everybody. Jesus prayed like this many times. No wonder the power of God was always available to Him throughout His earthly ministry.
Set yourself to pray like this often—earnestly, fervently, passionately and intensely; and watch yourself move from one level of glory to another, as you walk in the supernatural everyday of your life.
