Power of Prayer - The Most Valuable Dialogue of Your Life
It's the most powerful weapon on Earth. It can turn the impossible to the possible in a matter of seconds. Yet, few people even Christians seem to take advantage of this free, priceless commodity. The name of this mighty weapon you may ask? Prayer: The act of conversing with God; the intercourse of the soul with God, not in contemplation or meditation, but in direct address to him. If it's not the constant bombardment of the media focusing only on negativity, it's the monotony of our daily life which causes many to forget this simple task at our fingertips.
During the course of the day, a wide variety of stress can weigh one's soul down. Yet, how often do you pray to the Lord for guidance and strength to help you get through the daily grind? Or how often do you make a child like request to Him for you to have a blessed day? When a crisis arises who do you run to first? Man or Jesus? Usually, after one has exhausted all resources (doctors, lawyers, psychologist, etc.), prayer is used as the last resort. Have you ever wondered why?
We live in a fast-paced, result driven world, where one must "see it to believe it." Pure, unadulterated "proof" is a required calling card for anyone to believe anything in this technological based world. There is a deep deception in general concerning the power of prayer. Who or what could be reaping the benefits from a person's lack of one-on-one time with God?
In 2000, the Israeli government closed the Temple Mount in Jerusalem due to the violence towards Jews and Christians. However, in 2003, the Muslim custodians of the Temple Mount agreed to allow organized tours for Jews and Christians provided that they follow a strict rule: Not to Pray.
If that Islamic demand doesn't raise the hair on your head nothing will. Jews and Christians worship the same God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. What profit would Muslims have in trying to prevent prayers to Him? Is it plausible that the spiritual forces behind Islam are fully aware of the true power of prayer, so much so that they have Muslim agents on the Temple Mount to make sure that Jews and Christians adhere to the strict "No Prayer" policy? No doubt about it.
For those who question or doubt if prayers are real, he or she should consider the perplexing decree given by the Muslim custodians. The decree sounds eerily familiar to the one given two-thousand years ago to the apostles, when they were commanded not to teach or speak in the name of Jesus. The denial of prayer towards Jews and Christians should be proof enough of the validity of prayer. 1st Peter 3:12 mentions, "For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers." This is a direct and truthful statement, which I believe. The Muslims refusal to allow prayer proves they believe it. The question is?.do you believe it and what will you do next? His ears are awaiting your request?

Acknowledgement of our need of God and reliance upon Him will not always rid us of life's pressures, will not always remove from us the difficult situations, the dark cage within which we sometimes find ourselves trapped. We shall not always escape the pressures of life and the dark situations which they bring.

Do you go to God seeking His will for your life or do you simply want something from Him? This is a critical question because your prayers to God are not for changing Him or to beg Him to do what you want Him to do. Rather, it is to be changed by God and to be empowered to do His divine will.
