The Power of what?!?!?!

How often do you hear a phrase such as this?

'There's great power in prayer.'

Now I know what they are getting at but it does get my goat. There is no power in prayer, the power is my God to whom I pray. If I pray to an Idol my prayer is useless. It it is only when I pray to my all-powerful, living, gravious heavenly Father do my prayers mean squat!

  1. Good point. The same thing applies to "faith". There's nothing inherently good or worthwhile in faith, and neither does faith have any power. Faith only has value if we have faith in something worthwhile, if we have faith in God.
