The Fire that Consumes

Prayer has an incredible power to arrest and change the purposes of God. The prayers of righteous men relieve the stroke of His power. We can witness both the possibilities and the necessity of prayer when we see how the prayer of God’s saints brought about a change in God’s plans.

-Abraham prayed and God healed Abimeleck, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare Children.
-Jonah prayed and Nineveh prayed and God’s decree against the city was changed.
-Moses prayed forty-days and nights and God’s anger was kindled against Aaron to not destroy him.
-Hezekiah prayed and God added fifteen years to his life.

All of these people knew how to pray and how to prevail in prayer. Everything is possible to men and women who know how to pray, and it is still possible today.
