You know the feeling of just waking up and feeling disoriented for a few seconds. Because you had put off the lights before going to sleep, when you wake up you immediately assume that there is no light. But do you verify your assumptions? Let’s say that you do not. You go about your day, you needed to blend something but you just assumed that there was no light. You really needed to iron some clothes, but still you assumed that there was no light. Eventually, a neighbour comes by and informs you that there has been light all this while.
Like it or not, this is the case with we Christians these days. Truthfully, there was light but we didn’t take the extra step to put on the light. The current was lurking behind the switch almost begging for you to put it on. It’s exactly the same way the Holy Spirit and God’s power.
As a Christian, you have that power lurking in your spirit, just waiting for you to flip the switch. And what exactly is this switch? Its prayer. As a Christian, you will be quite powerless if your prayer switch is off because it opens the gate to tremendous spiritual authority.
The song, ‘prayer is the key’, does not lie. Prayer unlocks whatever we want it to unlock. The Bible says ask and it shall be given unto you (Matthew 7:7), hitherto have you asked nothing in my name, ask that your joy may be full (John 16:24).
The scriptures on the benefit of asking are uncountable. Some of us have emotional needs, some financial needs, spiritual needs and others physical needs. Whatever the need, nothing is going to change until you flip on your prayer switch. Prayer invites God into your situation. It helps get you through the process.
