Prayer and Power. ( James 5 v 17- 18 )

In Revelation 8 v 3 - 5,we have incense and prayers of Gods children ascending  to God,assisted by an angel,Leon Morris writing on this has a few helpful comments.Angels are not mediators they are our fellow servants.When we pray we are not praying in isolation ,the Holy Spirit is there to assist us (Romans 8 v 26 - 2 7) ,In these verses there is mentioned an altar ,it signifies that there is something sacrificial in true prayer.The result being , fire from the altar is hurled down upon the earth.L Morris again comments on this, This surely means that the prayers of God's people play a necessary part in ushering in the judgements of God..That means that more potent, more powerful  than all the  dark and mighty powers let loose in the world,more powerful than anything else, is the power of prayer  set ablaze by the the fire of God and cast upon the earth''.   ( Torrance )                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Never underestimate the power of prayer
