UNVEILING THE MYSTERIOUS POWER OF PRAYER AND FAITH
Prayer is the believer’s secret weapon—a smart bomb detonated from the quiet of remote closets everywhere.
Yet, while prayer might be likened to targeting a stealth drone with explosive power, faith is the detonator.
Hope grounded in faith expands energy.
Many of you don’t realize that when you pray, you are stirring up and amplifying creative energy—the same creative energy that created everything you see: The power of the Word spoken in faith.
It’s all about energy.
In prayer, when you take a matter and multiply it by the light of God’s Word, you expand energy.
When you turn up your own energetic frequency to engage in prayer, something amazing happens in the realm of the spirit.
Although you may not see it immediately, your prayers are impacting and bombarding the spirit realm—which is the causal realm—inducing spiritual contractions that give birth to what you have conceived and believed for.
When you mix your prayers with faith, Scripture declares, “Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:24).
Every day of your life you are transmitting an energy that creates an atmosphere around you.
You are literally “making waves.”
Some call it an aura, others think of it as an attitude or personal presence. I call it “faith.” Your faith-filled words have power, presence, and prophetic implications with no time or geographical limitations.
Conversely, the same holds true when you speak words of fear or doubt.
With your faith “attitude”—transmitted through the energy of your thoughts and words—you are literally altering the very atmosphere and environment in which you live.
Your faith or fear is a force that creates a positive or negative magnetic field.
Like attracts like.
If this energy is faith-filled, you will attract the positive equivalence in physical or experiential manifestations—if it is fear-filled, you will attract the opposite.
If you want to see the quality of your life, ministry, business, or community upgraded, then upgrade the force of your faith.
By faith you can change the trajectory of any given set of circumstances.
God wants you to thrive without struggling. It is your faith that will take the struggle out of life and living. This is why Hebrews 10:38 states, “The just shall live by faith.”
Jesus came so you would have a richer, more abundant life (see John 10:10)—and your God-given agency to pray is the mechanism by which you activate the abundant life:
“In fact, it says, ‘The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.’ And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved” (Romans 10:4-10 NLT).
Did you get that? What you confess with your mouth becomes a reality; even your eternal salvation is sealed by your simple confession of faith. This is the simplicity of the Gospel.
You must have faith in the God who created you—that you are not a glitch, a mishap, or a random product of your environment. You are much more powerful than that.
You were created with great purpose and power—with the very nature of God (see 2 Peter 1:4) and the mind of Christ (see 1 Corinthians 2:16)—to “be strong, and carry out great exploits” (Daniel 11:32).
You are God’s power broker.
And it is through prayer you broker that power.
In the earth realm you are the agent—”the emissary, envoy, proxy, go between.” You represent heaven on earth as Christ’s ambassador; it is up to you to proclaim God’s will in a given situation.
Prayer activates your divine potential to change the course of history.
You don’t have to live as a victim of circumstances. Through prayer—declaring God’s Word in faith—you can alter the very atmosphere, climate, and environment in which you live.
Your prayers make a difference.
“How many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
Luke 18:18 NLT
It is in prayer that we probe spiritual realities, communicate with God, access the arsenal of Heaven, and expand God’s Kingdom on the earth. It is as simple as pulling aside to a quiet place and opening your heart to God, and as dynamic as tapping into the power and imagination that created the cosmos.
As with God, nothing is impossible, so it is that through prayer, nothing is implausible.
Prayer gives Heaven permission to invade earth. Through this discipline, we are able to pray Heaven down to keep Hell from rising.
You must fully embrace that God will never abandon you but is ever-present wanting to work His will in your life. As Theresa of Avila said: “All difficulties in prayer can be traced to one cause: praying as if God were absent.” God is right here with you, living inside of you, ready to release His Kingdom through you, because “the Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21).
