“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
The Christian counterfeits, the worldly and the lost make much of the “power of prayer.”
However, by itself, prayer has no power.
To believe that the words coming from one’s mouth have power is a teaching rooted in the occult and witchcraft.
Any and all power from prayer comes from whoever the prayer is directed, not the prayer itself.
WHICH IS THE REASON MUCH PRAYER IN THIS WORLD IS LITTLE MORE THAN WASTED TIME AND ENERGY.
HAS the reader been fooled into believing prayer by itself has some sort of power; that it is the prayer, not to whom the prayer is directed, which has power?
THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
