Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. – Acts 19:11-12

If someone borrowed your shirt, would they be healed? If someone wore your socks, would they be delivered? God anointed Paul to such an extent that anything that so much as touched his body would be affected by the healing power that flowed through him. And guess what? That same power lives in you.

The same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead gives life to you: your body, and your prayers! You are filled with the same Holy Spirit as Jesus Christ Himself! So, when you pray, you should expect the same results as Jesus would expect Himself!

Your prayers are more powerful than you know. Trust that when you pray for the people God has put in your life, He will make His power known!


Father, thank You for Your miracle-working power! I know that Your Holy Spirit gives life to my prayers. Help me to pray for others will full confidence, knowing full well that when I pray in faith, You will follow my prayers with signs, miracles and wonders!
