Prayer Horespower

Proverbs 28:9  He who turns away his ear from listening to God’s Word,  Even his prayer is an abomination.

Everybody prays some time, when the crisis gets bad enough. Many think that God is obligated to answer if they do pray, after all He is God and that is what He is supposed to do. The fact is many  people do not get their prayers answered, many, God doesn’t even listen to, and there are those whose prayer is an abomination to God.  There are some people who have great power in their praying, I call it horsepower, because God listens intently to their voice, their thoughts, and He responds to them in power. To increase our horsepower in our praying does not require perfection, but it does require devotion to following the Lord, and to His Word, the Bible.

John 15:7, “If you abide in Me  and My Words abide in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be done for

It takes much self -discipline and self-control to  faithfully read the Bible everyday and to spend time with God in prayer everyday as an act of devotion and love for him, but the resulting authority and power we have makes the effort and time seem so insigniicant
