The power made available in the place of prayers is greater than the man that prayed. 

When we understand the power of prayer we will like to pray. We need to learn to give yourself to prayer and the word continually.

Romans  12:12  Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; CONTINUING INSTANT IN PRAYER;
You see the word continue? That’s how to keep an increasing growth in the place of prayers. One secret to prayers is to pray the word and to continue in it, for this will help you tarry long in prayers and it will make your prayer life effective.
