Verse Of The Day Q&A: The Power Of Prayer

And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.

Acts 4:31, NASB

The word “shaken” is to show the power that comes through prayer. Reading Scripture accompanied with prayer—seeking God’s strength and direction will equip you spiritually to share the gospel effectively. Prayer itself is not that power, but it is how we can communicate with the most powerful being—Jesus Christ, who created the heavens and the earth through His word.

If the Lord knows everything before it happens and what we need, why do we need to pray? Prayer shapes us to reflect—the person of Jesus Christ— it keeps us in a state of humility, we thank the Lord with prayer and it shows our obedience. Prayer is another way to worship Him, and keeps us dependent on the Lord.

  • When you feel sad and anxious, do you get on your knees?
  • Is prayer part of your lifestyle?

The only way you will grow spiritually, depends on the time that you are willing to invest in the Lord. The Word of God is what transforms your mind—obtaining a godly character. Prayer keeps your faith healthy and strong—moving forward.
