John 14:13-14 (KJV); And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
The spirit of religion does not have a problem with normal prayer. It is comfortable as long as your requests to God are within the bounds of human reason and are capable of rational explanation.
However, once your prayers and petitions to God go beyond the realms of human expectation, the spirit of religion will start to question what kind of God you serve or even your sanity.
Specifically, the spirit of religion subjects men to prayers that are realistic, attainable and make sense to the average person. Anyone functioning under a religious spirit has a kind of faith that is based on what is explainable, considering available resources.
Even the men of this world think like this. In fact, some of them are even more daring in faith than the average Christian.
Is that how God has called us to live? No.
In Jeremiah 32:27, Our Father tells us, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?”
We are children of the Most High God and in our theme scripture, He has given us a blank canvas to paint with all manner of possibilities. We have been called to be bold in faith, to eliminate impossibility from our language, to dream big and to elevate our visions above the predictable patterns of this world.

GOLDEN NUGGET: We have been called to be bold in faith, to eliminate impossibility from our language, to dream big and to elevate our visions above the predictable patterns of this world.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. In Your Word, You have said that concerning the works of Your hands, we have permission to command You. Thank You for this great authority that You have bestowed upon me. By it, I live boldly and daringly, to perform great signs and wonders and to change the world for your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
