Who is your source of power? This list of awesome power of prayer Bible verses is meant to encourage you today. I pray that you read through these Bible verses and then take them to God in prayer. Ask God for the wisdom and discernment to teach you how He wants you to pray and for what He wants you to pray for. For a great Christian song check out the video to the right Shout to the Lord by Darlene Zschech.

Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven

Ask

Matthew 7:7  “Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

Mark 11:24  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it

Pray in Faith

This list of awesome power of prayer Bible verses is meant to encourage you today.

Mark 9:29  And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

Acts 9:40 But Peter put them all outside, and knelt down and prayed; and turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.

James 5:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another,that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Always & With Thanksgiving

Ephesians 6:18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I’m so glad I was guided here too, truly and greatfully I am. Today I travelled down a small country road. On the left side near a laneway to a cattle field I saw a poster someone had erected with the face of Jesus, which said ‘I will be your Saviour.’ I visited a house shortly after and noticed, while doing a small task, a picture high over the doorway in the kitchen of the home, of Jesus in the same image as I saw on that empty road. And I thought ‘He will be my Saviour’ even though there were no words imprinted on that image. He is with me, my strength is growing so, so much and I thank you for your part in this, my friend.

There is something going on there Amber….its like Jesus saying that I will never leave you nor forsake you and wherever you go, there will I be. We too are blessed by your coming here. God is sovereign. There are no accidents in God’s plans and purpose.

Psalm 127:3 states, ‘Children too are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward’

For her I give my greatest thanks.

Goodnight and God bless. More hope, strength and love tomorrow in His wonderful light

I have seen big things in my life and in my family through prayer and I think as women we must never stop praying our prayers can go a long way but only when we have faith in Him and we pray in Spirit and in truth. God bless you all.
