You can allow circumstances, worry, and doubt to chart your steps, or you can build upon God’s Word (Matthew 17:20-21) to apply these four keys of mountain-moving prayer:
Key # 1: Mountain-moving prayer reveals our utter dependency upon God.
The prophet Isaiah said, “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts” (Isaiah 6:5).
There is no greater revelation that unleashes miracles than when you see how weak you are and how mighty God is, for He cannot use you until you discover that you cannot do it by yourself.
Key # 2: God reveals life-changing insight when we move into His presence through mountain-moving prayer.
Scripture promises, “Call unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3). Mountain-moving prayer requires time in God’s presence, as we move from the Outer Court to the Inner Court, and into the Holy of Holies.
As you spend time in His presence, the Holy Spirit begins to literally invade your heart, infusing you with new ideas, insight, and guidance far beyond any “mountains” that have loomed in front of you in the past.
Key #3: Mountain-moving prayer protects us from “impossible” barriers.
Jesus said, “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36).
When you spend time with Him, watching and praying, you will be counted as one of His worthy followers. You must be determined to never give up as you spend time in His presence.
Key # 4: Mountain-moving prayer unleashes God’s power and resources.
God delights in answering your prayers, but He can’t answer you when you aren’t praying. Prayerlessness closes things down and makes you subject to your “mountains” and circumstances (James 4:2-3), but God will swing wide the door of heaven’s divine resources when you pray.
Prayer is the way we communicate with God, the Creator, and the One who saved us through Christ Jesus His Son. Our relationship with God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit helps us understand and apply the Word of God to our lives. We can have mountain-moving power in our life through prayer.
