Praying is an act of service. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Who is righteous? Anyone who has surrendered to Jesus and let His Spirit come to dwell in their heart. No one else is righteous in God’s eyes. If you want to have a powerful and effective prayer life, surrender your whole self to Jesus. “Deny yourself, take up your cross (that means “die to yourself” let Jesus live His Eternal Life in you!) daily, and follow Him.” (Luke 9:23) That’s the ONLY way to have a powerful effective prayer life.
