PRAYER POWER by Dag Heward-Mills
READ: Daniel 6:11-28
...So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.
In my country Ghana, many people become afraid when they prosper. They feel that somebody may use supernatural powers to try to kill them. You have nothing to fear when you are a prayerful person like Daniel. Through the power of prayer, Daniel was protected from the lions. I see all the lions in your life scattering away in fear! I see your prayer power rising! I see you going forward because of a new found prayer life!
Maybe you are a successful businessman, and you do not think that you need any of this spiritual "stuff ". Perhaps you are a politician and you think your protection must come from fetish or occult powers. Let me tell you right now, there is power in prayer. We do not need any other power when we have the power of prayer.There is protection for us when we pray. The last part of the armour of God is prayer (Ephesians 6:18). In other words, prayer is an important part of your spiritual defense.
You must realize that it is prayer which releases the power of God on our behalf. Jesus knew the power of prayer. That is why He spent long hours in prayer. "...that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened..." (Luke 3:21).
I see the heavens opening over your life! Never forget this! The heavens opened when Jesus prayed. Both physical and spiritual blessings rain upon you when you are a prayerful person.
