Prayer Can Move Mountains-We Ought To Believe
“If you’re not sure about the power of prayer, it’s because you don’t pray. Prayer has divided the sea. Prayer brought water out of solid rock. Prayer cooled off Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace. Prayer blocked the lions’ mouths so they couldn’t destroy Daniel”.
— Pastor C.D. Brooks. ( Adventist Quotes)
When we pray
When we pray and God answers, His response to our supplications seem like magic or miracles to us; but because God is all powerful to do the normal, the usual ,and the extraordinary on our behalf, things that may appear too difficult and unattainable become easy, simple, and ordinary by God’s intervention in our lives, because we pray and trust Him honestly, earnestly and with abiding faith.
Exodus 14:21 “And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided”.
Exodus 17:5 “Then the Lord told Moses, “Go over in front of the people and take some of the elders of Israel with you. Take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 I’ll be standing there in front of you on the rock at Horeb. You are to strike the rock and water will come out of it, so the people can drink.” Moses did this in front of the elders of Israel”.
Daniel 3:24-25 “Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counselors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God”.
Daniel 6:17-20 “A stone was brought and placed over the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the rings of his nobles, so that Daniel’s situation might not be changed. Then the king returned to his palace and spent the night without eating and without any entertainment being brought to him. And he could not sleep.
At the first light of dawn, the king got up and hurried to the lions’ den. When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?”
