The POWER of prayer is FAITH (TRUST) in God, Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God. That’s why this FAITH only comes from hearing the Word of God. Then too, the POWER of prayer also is the POWER of God (the [dunamis] POWER of His Holy Spirit and the [exousia] AUTHORITY in Christ Jesus’ name). It is this POWER and AUTHORITY that God uses when He not only hears but also answers our prayers that are in agreement with His Will. Taking into consideration that we are submitting totally to God’s Will, are being willingly obedient to His commands, and genuinely are acknowledging EVERY GOOD THING that God already has given us (primarily the POWER that works in us), as well as taking into consideration that we also are trusting without doubting, believing and expecting to receive, and demonstrating the right motives, we then will know that we are ready to speak (pray) in FAITH, releasing the POWER and AUTHORITY that is within us that move God to hear and answer our prayers.
