DescriptionElijah tells Ahab that it is going to rain. His fervent and effectual prayer opens up the heavens and rain comes to an area that desperately needs it. Have you ever wanted to see your prayer life become more powerful? In this sermon, Tony Evans moves us from ritualistic communication to relational communication as we start to pray more effectively and see God work in our lives.
Tony tells us that prayer is the point of contact between God’s power and His provision in our lives. Prayer is God’s mechanism for grabbing the invisible and making it visible in our lives. But in our prayers we are not “making God do something.” Rather, prayer allows God to release His decreed will in our lives. By studying and understanding God’s Word, we are encouraged to continue praying until something happens!
