Prayer: The Acknowledgement of His Ability


“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,according to the power that worketh in us.”
Ephesians 3:20

Why would a believer who has been afforded the wonderful privilege of prayer not come to the Lord and bring his request? The reason may lie in the fact that they do not believe that God is able to accomplish that which needs to be accomplished. For this believer, they have not learned the truth that lies behind this weeks verse: God is able to do. Perhaps there is no greater verse to help bring peace in the midst of turmoil and trial than this one. Our God is able to do that which needs to be done. However, we find that He is not just able to do, but He is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think”. When we come to the Lord in prayer, we come to a God without limitations; nothing is impossible with our God.

When God revealed to Abraham and Sarah that He would give to them a son, Sarah laughed. Humanly speaking she should have laughed for she and Abraham were well past the years of child bearing. On that day God graciously revealed something about His very nature: He has no limits. In Genesis 18:14, God posed the following question to Abraham and Sarah, “Is any thing too hard for the LORD?”

As we come to the throne of grace and enter into a conversation with the King of kings and Lord of lords, may we be reminded that we are bowed in the presence of one with whom there is no limitation. Truly nothing is impossible with our God. He is able to do and “do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Do not miss out on the blessing of answered prayer because you lack the faith to believe that He is able.
