Prayer Releases God's Power

 Pray without ceasing.  1 Thessalonians 5:17
  How many times have you heard  someone say, "All I can do is pray"?
All I can do is pray?! You might as well say to a starving man, "All I can do is offer you food," or to a sick person, "All I can do is give  you medicine that will make you well," or to a poor child, "All I can do is buy the toy you most want for your birthday."
  Praying unlocks the doors of Heaven and releases the power of God. James 4:2 says, "You do not have because you do not ask." The Bible says, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God" (Phil. 4 :6).
 This is true not only for our needs but the needs of others. So often our prayers focus only on ourselves. But God wants to use us, through our prayers, to touch the lives of other people as well. For whom should you be praying this day.
