“And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees” (1Kings 18:42)
One of the reason some Christians don’t experience the manifestation of God’s glory in their lives as they should is that they often treat their time of fellowship with the Lord casually. Their minds, being full of distractions, are unable to concentrate and hear what God has to say! In James 5:16 (Amplified version), the Bible says, “The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man make tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]’’. The prayer is earnest and heartfelt, devoid of external influences or distractions.
Prayer isn’t a time of religious monologue, where you just talk and talk, until your mind wanders away. It’s a time of fellowship where your spirit mingles with the Holy Spirit, so much that your very being syncs with his laid out plan for your life.
If you want to see the demonstration of the power of the spirit in your life, you’ve got to learn to shut yourself away from the world and set your mind on the Lord in fellowship. Focus all your strength and energies on the Lord in prayer. This kind of prayer is what makes tremendous power available.
