All the promises of God’s Word are available to you to claim in prayer. Take your Bible and read them while praying. As you read, believe through faith, and you will receive accordingly.

Prayer works. Prayer works when we work prayer. It requires more than a cursory approach – it demands sowing of our spiritual want, our deep heart-felt desire, and hungering after righteousness.

Prayer is the point where divinity becomes one with humanity. As we stand, stand, and stand again we strengthen the cord of our spiritual connection with Heaven. Therefore, with the promise of God’s words on our lips, our eyes fixed on Him, and our heart’s turned toward Heaven, we are ready to share in His power!
