Standing on the Promises

I want to thank all of you for your prayers. I have just been reminding myself of the tremendous power of prayer.

James 5:16b The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. (NIV)

II Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive very thought to make it obedient to Christ. (NIV)

I would love to hear your favorite verses about prayer as well.

John 14:13-14 "And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it." I don't think it gets much clearer than that!

Matthew 7:7-8
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
