What's the Power of Prayer in a Believer's Life?
Jack Graham

Do you remember what happened when Christ, Peter, James, and John came down from the Mount of Transfiguration? They encountered a man whose son was possessed with an unclean spirit, which was wrecking his body and destroying his life.

Now, Jesus had several encounters with demoniacs, but there's something added that I want you to consider. Note what the father said to Jesus in Mark 9:18, he said, "I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able."

What a commentary this was on the disciples. Jesus had given them the power. They had cast out spirits in other circumstances. So the power was possible, but they were not able.

These very words could be said about many churches today… they were not able! We live in a world of spiritual devastation and the church seems powerless to help. Why is that?

Well, it's the same reason that Jesus gave the disciples when they asked why they couldn't help the boy—it's a lack of prayer. We are powerless because we are prayerless!

Listen! It's through times of prayer that your faith really begins to affect your life and to make an impact on those you encounter.

If you want the power to touch your world for Christ, you must spend time with the source of power, Jesus Christ!
