CONTRARY TO WHAT OTHERS THINK, IN CHRIST, YOU CAN NOT ADD NOR DO ANYTHING TO MAKE YOUR PRAYER MORE POWERFUL OR BE HEARD FOR THAT MATTER. THE FACT THAT YOU CAN PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS MEANS THAT YOU ARE NOT PRAYING ON YOUR OWN MERIT; CHRIST TOOK YOUR PLACE IN JUDGMENT FOR EVERY SIN THAT YOU THINK WILL DISQUALIFY YOU FROM COMING BEFORE GOD AND HIS THRONE OF GRACE. (Heb 10:14) “Because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being sanctified”

THE FINISHED WORK OF JESUS ON THE CROSS CHANGES PRAYER UNDER THE NEW COVENANT. FASTING OR ANY OTHER FORM OF RELIGIOSITY DOES NOT AFFECT WHO YOU ARE PRAYING TO. GOD IS NOT IMPRESSED WITH YOUR SO CALLED POWERFUL PRAYERS. IT IS THE DEATH OF JESUS THAT GIVES YOU THE BREAK THROUGH IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES.

UNFORTUNATELY EVEN NOW THAT WE ARE UNDER A NEW COVENANT WE MAINTAIN AN OLD COVENANT MENTALITY AND THINK THAT GOD STILL NEEDS TO BE PERSUADED IN ANSWERING OUR PRAYERS. IN SO DOING MANY BRETHREN BELIEVES THAT THEIR FORM OF PRAYERS COUPLED WITH THEIR RELIGIOSITY MAKES GOD GOOD.

WHEN YOU DECLARE YOUR PRAYER IN FAITH AND KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES, BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS CHRIST HAS ACCOMPLISHED ON THE CROSS ON YOUR BEHALF THAT IS A POWERFUL PRAYER.
(Rom 8:32) “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also FREELY give us all things?”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
