The ultimate source of power

Prayer can move mountains. It can change human hearts, families, neighborhoods, cities, and nations. It is the ultimate source of power because, in reality, it is the power of Almighty God that released through prayer.

“Prayer can do what political action cannot, what education cannot, what military might cannot, and what planning committees cannot. All these are impotent by comparison. By prayer the kingdom of God is built, and kingdom of Satan is destroyed. Where there is no prayer, there are no great works, and there is no building of kingdom. Where thereis much prayer and fervent prayer, there are great gains for the kingdom: God’s rule is established, His power is directed, His will is done, society is transformed, lost persons are saved, and saints are enabled to stand against the devil’s schemes.(Eph.6:11) If that isn’t enough to compel us to devout ourselves to prayer and always wrestle in prayer (Col.4:2,12), I don’t know what is!”
