James 5:16

Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. Amp.

Acts 1:8 makes us understand that we have received power ever since we came into Christ and got the Holy Spirit into us. We received power, and we have been with this power in us. But then, why do most Christians, even though they've received power, live their lives as though they are powerless? 

Did they lose the power they received? No! Because the power came with the Holy Spirit, and can only leave if He leaves. Did they receive less power than others? No! Because when the Holy Spirit is given to every Christian, He is given in His fullness. What then is the problem? Very simple. There is a huge difference between receiving power and making power available. 

Many Christians who have received power, do not make it available to the outside for use. And that's where the limitation is. The scripture says the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man, makes tremendous power available, dynamic in working. So that reveals why people live their lives powerlessly. Not because they aren't righteous, no! But because they aren't praying or they aren't praying right. The prayer that releases power must be effectual and fervent. 

That means the prayer must be in knowledge (not in ignorance or fear), and must be heartfelt. This is one reason why this kind of prayer is very important. Without prayer like this, power will not be made available to you, though you've received power. So start praying knowledgeably and fervently. Don't rush the prayer. Stay for long hours. When you live like this, you'll be amazed at how much power you command. You're blessed. -TCF
