The power of persistent prayer means that the believer should pray continually without ever giving up. The believer needs to tap into this reservoir of power and use it to accomplish great things for the kingdom of God. I believe that your prayer life will become more powerful after reading this article.

God performed great miracles when men and women prayed behind closed doors. The history of revivals throughout the centuries is witness to this fact. Prayers brought revival down from heaven.

Praying people changed social systems like slavery. Prayers changed the lives of the most wicked people and turned them into saints.

The people who have prayed are the ones who have changed their cities, towns, and nations. When the subject of prayer is mentioned, heroes of the faith like A.W. Tozer, E.M. Bounds, Leonard Ravenhill, Praying Hyde, and Brother Lawrence come to mind.

In this article, I want to share with my readers the power of prayer and how to release the power of prayer to change people, situations, and even nations. Persistent prayer is one secret of answered prayer.

The power of tears in prayer

Prayers can take several forms- words, non-verbal, tears, groanings, and actions. The Bible contains all these forms of prayers.

Many Christians are not aware of most of these different forms of prayers. They think that prayers are just words, but not so. Here are a few Bible verses about the different forms of prayers


You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?

Psalms 56.8

In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His piety

Hebrews 5:7

“Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; do not be silent at my tears; for I am a stranger with You, a sojourner like all my fathers

Psalm 39.12


In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weakness;

for we do not know how to pray as we should,

but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words

Romans 8.26


The Bible mentions different ways to pray using actions given below

Lifting up hands


Bowing down

Prostrating completely before God

Singing a prayer ( Psalm 90 A prayer song of Moses)

A praying person is a powerful person. All the great men and women that God has used mightily were people who spent hours in prayer.

Prayer makes the impossible, possible.

Every person who is spiritually active knows that little prayer means little power. by the same token, more prayer means more power. It is a very simple truth in the spiritual realm.

It is imperative, therefore, that to achieve great things for God, one must spend a lot of time in prayer.

Prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have. It can also help us to focus on what we want to achieve. Prayer can also help us to stay positive and upbeat, even in difficult times.

The Power of a praying church

Prayer is an essential part of human life. From ancient civilizations to modern times, people have relied on prayer to help them through difficult times.

Successful people have always prayed a lot. Even today, we can see examples of how prayer has influenced our lives. The millions who pray every day are an important part of our churches.

They are the ones who pray for those in need, and they are the ones who want to ensure that more people are faithful to God. They give testimony to God’s power over their own lives.

By praying for others, you can help them experience true happiness and peace. It is a good thing to be able to give people hope by praying for them.

By being able to pray and support others in their commitment to God, you can help them find a source of strength and joy that they may not have discovered on their own.

Prayer is a very powerful tool to use in our lives. It can help us overcome many obstacles, and it can help others to overcome their problems as well.

The Bible tells us that we are “a light for them to see in the world.” (Matt. 5:14) This is something that all of us should do as best as we can. This is a fundamental reason for praying for others.

The Bible encourages us to “pray for one another so that you may be healed.” (James 5: 15) We must all pray for one another. Prayer is a very important part of our lives, both as individuals and as a church.

The power of fervent prayer

Do you remember the Biblical story of the widow and the unjust judge? The judge was a harsh man but the widow keeps bothering him.

Finally, the unjust judge says to her that because of her persistence, she can have what she wants. Friends, God is not unjust at all so be assured that God answers prayer, and do not lose heart.

Even if your prayers are not answered immediately, do not stop praying. There are many examples in the Bible and in actual life where God answered prayers even if it was seemingly late.

God often has a greater purpose for answering prayers in His time, not ours.

Daniel prayed and his answer was dispatched immediately from God but evil angels stopped it from coming to Daniel for three weeks. But, eventually, his prayers were answered. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do justly?

Prayer has a powerful effect on the individual and on society as a whole. Prayers also have the ability to change the environment and bring about positive changes.

Prayer has a powerful effect on the individual and on society as a whole.

Prayer can raise the spiritual atmosphere of a town and improve the quality of life for all people. In addition, prayer can be a way to bring about social change.

For example, political changes and religious freedom came about because people prayed.

Themes in prayer include praise, thanksgiving, supplication (prayer of petition), intercession, and petition. Fervent prayer means constant prayer, in which the individual prays without ceasing.

Never doubt the power of prayer

When faced with a difficult situation, it is natural to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about the future. In moments like these, many people turn to prayer for guidance and support. Prayer is a powerful tool to help us find strength during difficult times.

Despite what may seem like an impossible situation, never doubt the power of prayer. In the past, I have been in situations where my friends and loved ones were suffering greatly.

In those times, it was easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless. But thankfully, I was able to turn to prayer as a way of finding hope and strength through difficult circumstances.

I found it easy to pray for my friends and family members, knowing that they were in good hands with their God.

When you feel overwhelmed by worry or shock, turn to prayer as a way of finding hope and strength. Your faith, like mine, gets strong by the act of turning to prayer.

God has a way to strengthen your faith when you feel temporarily discouraged.

Releasing the power of God through prayer

We must learn to release the power of prayer in our lives and others’ lives. Prayers can release tremendous power and bring healing, deliverance, and revival to the nations of the world.

James 5.14-17 mentions that the persistent, continual, forceful prayers of the righteous person are powerful and effective. Elijah is the model of prayer there. Elijah was a man of like passions, in other words, he was an ordinary person.

But when he prayed, the heavens closed for three and a half years. And when he prayed again, the heavens opened up and there was rain in the land. God answers every prayer that you pray in Jesus’ Name.

Elijah had learned how to release the power of God through prayer. James implied that we too can do the same if we pray persistently and sincerely.

So, to conclude, we must learn that there is tremendous power in persistent prayer. So we must release this power by praying as much as we can and some more.

The ministry of prayer is a powerful ministry though not so glamorous. When we pray continually, Jesus gets the reward for His suffering.

Our lifestyle must be one of prayer and then we will accomplish much for the kingdom of God and prove that there is indeed power in persistent prayer.
