“The prayer of the upright is His delight.”
(Proverbs 15:8)

Powerful Prayer
by Larry Burkett

When Jesus’ disciples attempted to cast out a demon, they couldn’t. Then Jesus came along and cast it out, and the disciples asked, “Lord, why were we unable to do this?”

Jesus replied, “Only by prayer and fasting can you do this.” Our Lord knew prayer and fasting were necessary in His own life in order to do His father’s bidding on the earth (see Luke 6:12).

Prayer must be an integral part of a Christian’s life; it is an intergalactic, ballistic missile that can span oceans, deserts, mountains, and galaxies.

Faster than the speed of light, prayer travels at the speed of God.

You don’t even have to know what to say. As the apostle Paul wrote, “We do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” (Romans 8:26).

Abraham Lincoln expressed his thoughts on prayer: “I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere to go but prayer. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day.”
