Prayer Is the Key to a Life of Impact

Ask, and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find;
knock, and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives;
he who seeks finds;
and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Matthew 7:7-8

The apostle Paul was a man of action. He was a man’s man, a leader’s leader, and a teacher’s teacher. He was smart and well-educated.

In today’s vernacular, Paul would be considered a Type A personality. He could do it all himself. He could stand before a group of Greek philosophers in Athens and debate with the best of them. And he could stand before kings and speak with such confidence that his royal audience would walk away amazed.

From a human perspective Paul was self-sufficient and highly competent. So most people might be surprised to learn that Paul was a great advocate of complete dependence upon God in prayer. Prayer, by its very definition, looks to a higher power for wisdom and direction.

Paul recognized that his usefulness to God was in direct proportion to his dependence on God. And because Paul was useful to God, he couldn’t help but make a difference in his world. This is why prayer is such a vital key to a life of impact!
