Day 6 | The Penetrating Power of Prayer



Prayer is God’s way of letting us partner with him to accomplish his purposes on earth. Jesus said we would do even greater things than he did. How is that possible? Simple. Through prayer. Like spiritual missiles, your prayers release the power of God into the most hopeless situations. They penetrate places where no man or woman can go, whether that’s a closed, international border, or the hardened heart of a skeptic. Prayer makes the impossible possible. So pray!

I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father.

JOHN 14:12 (NIV)


What did you hear?
What did God say to you as you read today’s Bible passage? What word or phrase was most meaningful to you?

What do you think?
What does this passage mean to you? How does it apply to your life?

What is your prayer?
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. But take a minute to write a prayer of response to God.
