Praying With Power – Part 2

Matthew 7:7-8

KEY PRINCIPLES FOR POWERFUL PRAYER

1.  Prayer that is powerful is offered in the NAME OF JESUS.

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son
may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I
will do it.  John 14:13-14

2.  Prayer that is powerful is focused on GOD’S WILL.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if
we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  1 John 5:14

3.  Prayer that is powerful is based on FAITH.

‘If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.’  Matthew 21:22

4.  Prayer that is powerful is committed to PERSISTENCE.

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them
that they should always pray and not give up.   Luke 18:1
