Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, Ephesians 3:20
We limit The Very Power of God Almighty in our lives by the way we pray. We make a list and tell Him all of our needs and hope we do not forget some. We then try to be very specific exactly what we want or need instead of asking for His perfect will for us! He knows far better exactly what our needs are. In most cases we are praying for a huge mistake with many sorrows. He Has a better answer than we know.
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
All the time we are not seeing through The Eyes and Heart of God Almighty and The Lord Jesus Christ. God Almighty sees from the Beginning to the End and Knows all things for our lives. Your own thinking and understanding will limit The Power Of God Almighty and The Lord Jesus Christ in your life.
The Bible states that your carnal mind is a enemy of God because it operates out of the five senses and does not see the realm of The Spirit of God Almighty.

Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Years ago a woman on welfare came to me and asked that I would pray for The Lords Favor for her son. Her 13 year old son fell and hit his face on a curb and broke his two front adult teeth at the gum line. She wanted The Lord to have a dentist take monthly payments to cap and crown his teeth. As I started to Pray Father in The Name of Jesus please have a dentist show her favor.
The Lord Jesus Spoke to me in a very stern voice and stopped me instantly. He said you are limiting My Power by telling Me how and what to do. From this day forth always Pray for Me to do a Miracle instead of telling Me how and what to do. I then prayed for a Miracle as The Lord instructed me to do. The next day the lady went to a dentist to see if he would take payments. The dentist came out of the exam room very agitated and said she must be mistaken the teeth had to be her son’s baby teeth. He said because there are two brand new teeth growing out of his gum line right now!
2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
2 Corinthians 4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
