The Seven Prime Effects of Prayer
The Seven Prime Effects of Prayer
Prayer is wonderful and the benefits of prayer can never be exhausted. Prayer does not only change things, prayer also changes us, it changes men! Little wonder James 5:16 says “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” Another translation says “The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. Below are 7 things, among many others, that prayer does.
- Prayer helps you to develop your relationship with God
Prayer is communicating and fellowshipping with the Father. God as your Father, wants to hear from you and talk to you. Through prayer, you can talk to God and expects His answers. God wants His children to fellowship with Him consistently; prayer is one of the ways to do that.
- Prayer can help you change your focus
There are several situations and circumstances going on around us every day, and we could easily get caught up in them. Prayer directs our focus away from these happenings unto God. Prayer also aligns our will with the will of God for us. Prayer doesn’t change God, it changes us and brings us into alignment with His will and help us understand His ways.
- Prayer works miracles
In the scriptures, many miracles were wrought as an answer to prayers. In Acts 12, King Herod put Peter in prison and would have killed him, but the church prayed ceaselessly for him, and an angel came and rescued him from the prison. You can also experience miracles such as healing, deliverance, provision, the forgiveness of sins and many other miracles when you pray.
- Prayer helps you understand God’s word and His loving nature
When you pray before you study God’s word, the eyes of your understanding is enlightened and you have a revelation of His word. Prayer can help you understand God’s loving nature.
- Prayer helps you get direction
When you’re about to make a decision in your life and you pray about it, you get direction about it. God hears prayers and gives the answer and guidance needed for that decision. You can never go wrong in your decisions when you pray and rely on God for directions.
- Prayer changes things and men
Through prayer, the seemingly impossible things are made possible. Men, situations and circumstances are changed when tremendous power is made available through prayer.
- Prayer releases anxiety
Prayer is a channel through which we can pour our hearts to God and lay our cares and burdens at His feet. Through prayer, we show absolute dependence and confidence in God which makes anxiety flee.
The importance of prayer in our everyday life can never be overemphasized and the benefits of prayer are numerous and can never be exhausted, the list goes on and on. God is ever ready to communicate and fellowship with us, therefore, prayer is a major tool in drawing close to God and knowing Him better.
