Powerful Relationships

“The prayer of a righteous person has much strength to prevail when it is exercised.”

There is power in prayer! But lack of prayer is as much an act of faithlessness as is any act of disobedience. But God stands ready to stand by His promises. He desires us to ask Him, “Lord, Your kingdom come. Your will be done!”

When we see through the eyes of prayer, it influences our relationship with people.  When we see through the eyes of prayer we see people as persons. The word person comes from the Latin words per and sonare which mean "sounding through." When we see people as persons we "sound through" that outward appearance and see them through the eyes of prayer. All persons are interesting, not just the famous! No one has to fit into a preconceived mold and each is allowed to be the person God created him or her to be! We sound through the outward appearance and see the real and unique person -- the climax of God's creation -- another individual for whom Christ died. Real prayer gives us eyes to see and change our relationship to the world, time and people.
