  1. “ Prayer unleashes the power of God”, “To really give prayer its power, I must take God’s thoughts from His Word and present them before Him”.  I enjoy most of the email I receive from you, but this one seems wrong.  These quotes insinuates that God’s power is somehow bound until we pray.  Can you provide me with some biblical context to back this up?  


    • Thank for following me. First I agree with you with you God’s power is never bound. I believe the author is saying that by using God’s word as a guide when praying directs us to what God is saying. Example Prov.3:5-6. Helps me to express to God that I am trusting In Him and not wanting to lean on my own understanding. Acknowledging Him and asking Him to direct my path. Heb. 4:12. Sorry for the misunderstanding. God’s peace be with you
