The prayer power has never been tried to its full capacity. If we want to see mighty wonders of divine power and grace wrought in the place of weakness, failure and disappointment, let us answer God’s standing challenge, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not!” ~J. Hudson Taylor
LORD my God, listen to your servant’s prayer and request, and hear the cry and prayer that your servant prays to you today. (1 Kings 8: 16, CEB)28, CEB)
The prayer of the righteous person is powerful in what it can achieve. (James 5: 16, CEB)

O Holy Spirit of God,
abide with us; inspire all our thoughts;
pervade our imaginations; suggest all our decisions;
order all our doings.
Be with us in our silence and in our speech,
in our haste and in our leisure,
in company and in solitude,
in the freshness of the morning
and in the weariness of the evening;
and give us grace at all times
humbly to rejoice in Thy mysterious companionship.
I ask you, Lord Jesus,
To develop in me, your lover,
an immeasurable urge toward you,
an affection that is unbounded,
a longing that is unrestrained,
a fervour that throws discretion to the winds!
The more worthwhile our love for you,
all the more pressing does it become
Reason cannot hold it in check,
fear does not make it tremble,
wise judgement does not temper it.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s pray in Jesus’ name!
Now it’s time for you to jump in with your prayers/prayer requests in the comment section. Let’s also pray for each other! Someone will pray for you/with you. (Because this is a global prayer wall, sometimes – due to the time differences – prayers are not instant. But know that God hears you 24/7! BLESSINGS!
