When I think of prayer I realize that there is much power behind it in our every day lives. While it’s not a magic wand to get whatever you want from God responds when we sincerely seek Him.

Sincere prayer and seeking God in spirit and in truth creates an atmosphere of power. That’s the power we get from God to overcome the power of the enemy and prayer is a key factor.

Alex and Stephen Kendrick wrote a book called, The Battle Plan for Prayer, which teaches about the power of prayer. The book is a follow up resource to their movie, War Room, which is about prayer. Prayer is as important to the life of a believer as oxygen to a living organism.
