Prayer for Power: Praying for Spiritual Power
No doubt, we live in a world where both physical and supernatural powers exist; having both is fine, but as Christians, we should be more concerned with having the spiritual. In this article, we will walk you through understanding the prayers for power, the importance of praying for supernatural power as well as prayer for power (spiritual power).
One needs to understand the source of this power if you are to acquire it; they come to Christians according to their capacity which depends on their relationship with Christ.
In order to acquire this spiritual power, there are several things involved, but they all revolve around three things, first is your relationship with Christ, second is your relationship with others (believers and non-believers) and third is a prayer for supernatural power.
With these three, you are on the right path of growing in spiritual power.
Before going on with some powerful prayers for power, it is important you know that if you want to see God’s power and receive it, then you need to have a good relationship with him, and this you must do by getting closer to him. (Hebrews 7:25).
Having the power of God in us is a sure way of experiencing His supernatural work in our lives. It is important to draw near to God in order to have his power in us.
With that said, let’s proceed to our focus in this guide, which is the prayer for power or praying for supernatural powers.
Praying for God’s Power
Praying for God’s power is not to satisfy human desire or for pride – no. The essence of these prayers is to give you power to fight off sins, fight off the works and workings of the devil and his agents and power for making you mighty men and women.

Lord, give me the power of your eternal grace that I might never cease to sing your praise and worship you in all circumstances I am faced with. (Acts 16:25; Matthew 5:11-12).
God, bestow upon me the power and grace to be strong and unyielding in the face of self-pity, that I will forever have reason to return good for evil. (Romans 12:17; 1 Peter 3:9).
Lord, give me the power and grace of receiving compassion in the face of injustice against me. (Luke 33:15-20; 1 Peter 3:8). God, help me to always bear the fruit of gentleness at all times. (James 3:17; Galatians 5:23).
