Prayer was the heart of Jesus’ success, and it is also the key to our success as Christians.
We can unlock that secret power in our own lives if we learn how to focus our prayer as Jesus did.
Prayer moves the hand of God, and the hand of God moves the world!
Smith Wigglesworth was a great preacher. But before he was a preacher, he was a plumber who wasn't a Christian – or a very nice man
Fortunately for him, he had a godly wife.
He didn't want her to go to church, but she went anyway. When she did, he'd lock her out of the house, and when she came home, she'd have to sleep on the back porch. In the morning he'd unlock the door and she'd come in and say, "Good morning, Smithy!" and make him breakfast.
She was a godly example for him. She prayed for him and God gave her the grace to be good to him in spite of his rude behavior. And because she continued to be so good to him, he eventually came to know the Lord and was radically changed. As a result, he became one of the greatest preachers who ever lived.
That's the power of prayer.
Spend time with God. Talk to Him sincerely and honestly. Cast your cares on Him. Find out what He wants to do and then follow His lead. It's simple.
