|Chapter 19 Power for Praying and Working 3/12/18
NIV John 14:12-13
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
1. For what is prayer to be our channel?
2. How will prayer affect our work for God?
3. What was needed in order for us to do greater works?
4. What does effectual working need?
5. What basic prayer promise did Jesus repeat six times?
We must understand that the first and chief thing for everyone who would do the work of Jesus, is to believe, and so to get linked to Him, the Almighty One, and then to pray the prayer of faith in His Name. Without this our work is but human and carnal; it may have some use in restraining sin, or preparing the way for blessing, but the real power is wanting. Effectual working needs first effectual prayer.
Believer in Jesus! You are called, you are appointed, to do the works of Jesus, and even greater works, because He has gone to the Father to receive the power to do them in and through you.
