Praying With Power – Part 2

KEY PRINCIPLES FOR POWERFUL PRAYER

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

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.
