“It seems that God is limited by our prayer life. He can do nothing for Humanity unless someone asks Him to do it.”- John Wesley
God is only in control of our lives to the extent that we allow His Word to govern our life.
This is the whole basis of the believer’s authority, that unless I walk in it, there are things that simply will not get done in my life.
Prayer is the oxygen for our confession of faith.

James 5: 16 (AMP) …The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
