Prayer: The Ultimate Game-Changer
In our daily lives, there are plenty of opportunities to become tangled in situations that we can’t cope with. When this happens, we have a choice on how to handle the problem. We can either try to fix the issue ourselves and end up getting in worse trouble, or acknowledge our human limitations and pray for divine intervention. If we choose the second option, our prayers act as a powerful game-changer that can alter the outcome of a bad situation.

A “game-changer” is defined as a newly-introduced element or factor that significantly changes an existing situation or activity. Developing a strong prayer life works to our advantage; it connects us to the one person who can help when we find ourselves in trouble that threatens to overwhelm us. Our prayers should be infused with belief in the finished works of Jesus. “So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:22-24, NKJV).
The world doesn’t understand prayer; it only knows what religion teaches—a monologue of constantly repeating memorized words. True prayer is a two-way conversation with God, who loves us and knows what’s on our minds before we even speak it. “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7, 8). God’s will is for us to have the same power and authority over situations as Jesus Christ. When we pray, we agree with Him on this.
Our trust in the power of what Jesus did, with no trace of doubt, distinguishes our prayer lives from the way the world prays. Prayer should be active, not passive. Employing faith when we speak with God allows Him to reveal to us the specifics of what He wants us to do to position ourselves for deliverance from trouble. “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone” (James 2:17).
Jesus went to the cross to give us victory over adversity. Therefore, we don’t have to resign ourselves to accept trouble as part of life. All we have to do is receive what He made available. Praying correctly connects us to limitless power. “…The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16, NIV).
We never have to wonder whether God wants us to master the situation. His Word is crystal clear. Our faith in what Christ has already accomplished turns the tide in our favor. “For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4, NIV). We have His assurance that when we pray, we don’t have to beg Him to do something, but instead thank Him for what He’s already done.
