Check out these impressive statistics on the power that Hoover Dam generates:
- Water falls 530 feet into the seventeen enormous Francis-type vertical hydraulic turbines, which have a rated capacity of three million horsepower.
- In the record-setting year of 1984, the Hoover power plant yielded a net generation of 10,348,020,000 (that’s billion with a “b”) kilowatt-hours of power.
- Eleven cities in Nevada, Arizona, and Southern California rely on Hoover-generated kilowatts to light and power their communities, benefiting millions of people.
The numbers are so huge that we cannot fathom how much power those generators produce. Yet, all of that incredible power is barely a drop in the bucket compared to the vast reservoir of power readily available to God’s man: the power of prayer. Check this out: “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us...” (Ephesians 3:20).
