(You Have The Power To Cause Positive Changes)
TO THE BIBLE James 5:16 AMPC
“The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].”
From our opening scripture, it’s evident that you can change anything through prayer, because the divine power necessary to cause that change is in you; it was deposited in you the moment you received the Holy Spirit into your life: “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you...” (Acts 1:8). Through prayer, we can activate the power of God and effect changes in the realm of the Spirit. We can bring that power to bear on situations and circumstances we want changed.
For example, we can put a stop to the recurrent spate of wars, natural disasters and violence that result in wanton destruction of lives and property in many parts of the world today. Through our effectual, fervent prayers, we can implant lasting peace in war-torn, disaster ravaged and terrorism-prone countries in our world. We’ve been mandated to do this: “...Seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace” (Jeremiah 29:7).
Pray today, and regularly, for peace to mantle the nations of the earth and rule the hearts of men all over the world. Pray fervently in other tongues and declare that God’s angels of peace are released into every hitherto troubled region in the earth, to cause the peace of God to garrison the hearts of men and women domiciled therein. Set yourself to pray like this often—earnestly, fervently, passionately and intensely for peace on earth, and there’ll surely be greater peace and tranquility all over the globe.
Psalm 122:6; 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Dear Father, your Word reveals Christ as the only hope for peace in the earth, for His birth brought peace on earth and goodwill to all men. I pray for the impact and greater in uence of that peace in the hearts of men today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
