I think most of us would say we desire to walk in the peace of God. I also believe many would say they want to experience the power of God. In their life and in the life of their loved ones. I also believe it is vital in the days we are living in.
More prayer equals more peace.
I love the way the Amplified Bible interprets the scripture in James 5:16.
The earnest, heartfelt, continued, prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available, dynamic in its working.
Heartfelt prayer. Continued prayer. These types of a prayer life make dynamic power available. Power that works to accomplish things.
This is not talking about going to God with a list of needs, spouting them out to Him and then going about your day. No.
This is talking about a heartfelt prayer, desiring to know the heart of God. Wanting to know His plan and praying into that.
It is also referring to continued prayer. Not a five-minute prayer once a week. This is a constant prayer life. A daily prayer life. The fruit of this type of prayer life is power. Tremendous power…dynamic in its working.
I encourage you today to examine your life. Is the power of God present in your life? If so, wonderful! If not, you can change it. You can begin to spend more time in prayer. Heartfelt, consistent prayer. In doing so, you will begin to experience a power-filled life.
