Reaching God's Ear
Sam Storms in his book “Reaching God’s Ear” said, “Prayer in and of itself possesses no power. Prayer is powerful because God is powerful and prayer is the means through which that divine power is released and channeled into our lives”. In other words all the power in prayer is really God’s power activated by prayer and faith. When you pray for another person nothing flows from you to him — no vibes, no force, no energy. Instead your prayers go to heaven and the power of God moves from Him to the ones you’re praying for. When James says that “the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (NIV), it means that God acts powerfully and effectively through the prayers of His people. Prayer is the instrument by which God has chose to have His power directed in the universe.
