You may be much closer than you think to the greatest supernatural work you’ve ever seen.
John 14:14 – If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
What is there in the heart and mind of God that is only ONE PRAYER AWAY? What invention awaits a prayerful release into the mind of a believer that could bless millions and enrich the work of God’s Kingdom in the earth? What act or idea that could transform a life, a home, a church, a nation, or the entire world needs only the release of true faith to unleash it in its full power and glory? All that and much more is on ONE PRAYER AWAY!
Oh, dear reader, the Word of God holds many such examples. In ONE PRAYER Solomon released the wisdom of the ages. In ONE PRAYER Elijah prayed down the fire of God. In ONE PRAYER the king’s life was extended by 15 more years. In ONE PRAYER Jesus forever changed the course of human history as He released His glory, power, and ability upon all who believe in Him. In ONE PRAYER Paul and Silas received liberty from their bonds, a prison was shaken, and an entire home was saved. In ONE PRAYER boldness was granted to the apostles who had been freed from prison, and the place where they were was shaken. Again and again through the Scriptures we witness a loving and gracious God manifest His love, favor, might, and power, all in ONE PRAYER.
Now consider our Text for Today in its context. Jesus said we are to do all the works that He did, and ever greater works. Based on this awesome truth, what is there that is waiting for your prayer? Prayer is not a once-in-a-lifetime event, but a lifelong style of living. Yet in one session of a few seconds, what can God do to you, for you, and through you? What do you, or a loved one, or a member of the body of Christ need from Father? Is there someone who needs salvation? Healing? Deliverance? Provision? Victory? Favor? The answer to all these questions is “YES!” A sudden manifestation of the mind of Christ? Is there anything too hard for God? Of course the answer to that question is “NO!” And the great beauty of those answers and the joy that accompanies them is this; whatever you or anyone else needs is truly only ONE PRAYER AWAY.
