In the very first post on the Possibility Prayer, I mentioned that my inspiration was Ephesians 1:15-23 from the Holy Bible.
Let’s look at this passage so you can receive a greater understanding of the power and potential of this prayer.
First, are the recipients of St. Paul’s prayer?
People who fit two criteria: 1. People who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. 2. People who love the saints–not as in dead Catholic ones, but living, breathing children of the most high God who have also placed their faith in Jesus Christ and rub shoulders with you in the trenches of life.
Why this criteria?
This is a prayer for a special class of people–people who exercise faith and love.
Faith in Christ and love for Christ’s brothers and sisters are the criteria for being a recipient of the possibilty prayer.
Why faith and love? Faith works by love. Faith pleases God. God is love.
God’s DNA flows through the individual who exercises faith to believe and love to respond. That’s why faith and love are the prerequisites for the Possibility Prayer. With God all things are possible. Not so much on our own. Have you noticed?
This is a POWER PRAYER. It is like breaking waves and a fast train. You will feel the wind that drives this prayer. It will change the atmosphere around you! You can’t pray a possibility prayer for someone who is pulling the weight on their own. It will never fly! It will be dead in the water.
So if that is not you, yet, I would invite you to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You’re going to want to be on the receiving end of this prayer! Just like receiving the gift of this blog, it is all about receiving. You were not charged to read this blog. It is free. It is available to everyone. Not everywhere will avail themselves of it. They can. I’ve done all the work writing it. WordPress has done all the work creating the platform. It’s yours. It’s free.
Receiving the gift of life in Jesus Christ is accessed in the same way. It is free. It is available. You don’t have to clean up your act to receive it; just receive through faith. Simply ask. Invite Jesus Christ to be Lord of your life. Oh the joy…
Remember, faith is the key and love is the hand that turns the key of possibility!
