Pray Bigger

3rd May

You can ask for anything in My Name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it!

John 14:13-14

When Jesus left the Earth, He promised to be with us forever. He may have left in His physical form but through the power of the Holy Spirit, He now lives in our hearts. He is always with us in everything we do and say. This being said, because we are human, we still manage to confine God to our small imagination and images. Although He may live in our hearts, we tend to put false limitations to what God can do because of our finite understanding of Him. Yet if we are to take God’s word, in fact, Jesus’ very own words, as literal, then surely our prayers will start to become more radical and outrageously hopeful. The more we realise who lives in us, the more we realise His power and might. If the same Spirit that rose Jesus from the dead lives in us, and Jesus said that we can ‘ask for anything in His Name and He will do it’ then why don’t we start praying bigger prayers.

With man there are so many things that are impossible. Yet with God, in Jesus’ Name, through the power of the Holy Spirit, alive in us, NOTHING is impossible. We can pray for a change in our communities, for our bosses and colleagues to be transformed by the love of Jesus, for our world leaders to give their hearts, lives and actions to Jesus, for peace and unity to rule and reign. These things are impossible in our own eyes, but not with Jesus. Pray bigger, trust for more.
