COMPASSION IS POWER
When you approach the Father in prayer tonight, do you really believe you will be praying with power? I'm concerned that many of you aren't fully convinced of your authority in Christ. Each week, partners ask, "You and Brother Cerullo pray with such authority and power, miracles happen! But when I pray, I don't feel anything. Why?"
When you observe both Brother Cerullo and other great men and women of prayer, you'll find they all have one thing in common: They are soaked with compassion. Deep mourning for the lost and an indescribable compassion floods every fiber of their being. Because of this, their approach to God is violently powerful. They would rather die than be refused mercy and salvation for suffering souls. They won't take "no" for an answer!
Compassion is power! Just look at Jesus: "And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick...So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him" (Matthew 14:14; 20:34, NKJV).
The list of Jesus' "miracles of compassion" is extensive, each instance showing us that compassion was the driving force behind His prayers. Beseech God for the river of His compassion to be released in you tonight, and look forward to powerful results from your prayers.
Our Evening Prayer - Let's Pray Together...
God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, thank you for Your deep compassion. I repent of not having this holy fire for others. Release Your compassion in me now. Let it be the new miracle power behind all of my prayers. Allow it to propel me to new depths in You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
