"God's omnipotent power is the basis of omnipotent praying. "All things are possible to him who believes" (Mark 9:23), and "Whatever things you ask" (Matt 21:22)  are given to him who prays. God's decree and death yield readily to Hezekiah's faith and prayer. When God's promise and man's praying are united by faith, then nothing shall be impossible. Importunate prayer is so all-powerful and irresistible that it obtains promises, or wins where the prospect and premise seem to be against it. In fact, the New Testament promise includes all things in heaven and in earth. God, by promise, puts all things He possesses into man's hand. Prayer and faith put man in possession of this boundless inheritance." (E.M. Bounds)

"the effective , fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much"  (James 5:16) We are witnessing desperate times in the world today, and it will continue to get more desperate in days ahead. How much can effective, fervent prayer avail? Only God knows. Father in heaven, may there begin, and continue to be, effective , fervent prayer across our nation, and throughoutthe world......Larry
