What is the power of prayer?
What is the power of prayer?

There are many times we feel powerless in our lives, especially in the face of difficult circumstances. By ourselves, we can do nothing.

The scriptures confirm this. In John 15:5, Jesus says, “Apart from me you can do nothing.”

We recognize the need for God’s power. This is the same power by which God created the heavens and the Earth. It’s the same power that parted the sea for Moses and that Jesus used to heal the sick and cast out demons.

It was that power that raised Christ from the dead and brought a baptism of fire on the first Christians.


All these miracles happened through the power of prayer. Moses prayed before Yahweh. Jesus prayed to the Father for miracles. The early Christians prayed together in the Upper Room.

Whether it was Daniel in the lion’s den or Elijah before the false prophets, prayer constantly served the important figures of the Bible. And we can harness that same power in our lives today.

God gives us this power through His Holy Spirit.

Paul tells the Ephesians in 1:18-19:

“I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Him …and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power for us who believe, according to the working of His great power.”

Our Heavenly Father gives us this power through His son Jesus. There is power in Jesus’s name.

In John 14:13, Jesus says:

“I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
