The Power of Prayer


I watched the Bible-based program on the television, a preacher who taught some inspiring verses of the scriptures to eliminate all burdens, frustrations and worries in your life which accumulate your depression.

You know, stress and all kinds of worries are still rampant nowadays in this world. Your boss is always demanding because he/she gives you toughest pressures to finish your daily tasks.

We exposed dangers like the latest and worst issue of A (H1N1) or influenza virus that happen around the world.  The World Health Organization (WHO) published the data, as of 6:00 p.m. GMT on May 18, 2009, 40 countries have officially reported 8829 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection, including 74 deaths. Here are the following lists of different countries afflicted by the A (H1N1) virus  (Courtesy: http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_05_18/en/index.html):

I am not surprised that the number of cases of A (H1N1) are now ballooned to 8,829. Why this virus allows to suffer innocent people? Well, here’s the answer according to Deuteronomy 32:39 in King James Version:

“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”

God has the authority to kill, to make alive, to wound and to heal people in this world. You cannot avoid Him my dear blog readers and brethren. The possible solution to stop the spreading of  this virus is prayer. It is written according to Philippians 4:6:

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

The phrase “Be careful for nothing;…” that means you must not worry. We must not worry, my dear bloggers, but we must have everything you do by prayer and thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  All unsolved problems like sicknesses and stress, just pray to the Lord. Have faith in God because these problems will be solved by prayers and He will hear and answer it by Him. I have a verse of the Bible to heal for the sick according to the letter of James 5:15:

“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”

You pray to your friends, siblings, and your parents who are sick or with burdens. The Lord will heal the sick people and forgive them.  You must not worry about the spreading of A (H1N1) virus but pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17) to Him. That’s the power of prayer.

Have faith in God through Christ Jesus, brothers and sisters. Don’t lose hope but think positive! God bless you and be strong. Jesus loves you!
