Satan’s most dread is a Praying Believer. What worries the devil the most about you is when you have a fervent and an effective prayer lifestyle.
Willian Cowper said: “Satan Trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his knees”.
Consequently, Satan’s objective is to attacks every prayer mechanism available to a believer, and abuse, devastate, and corrupt every prayer channel at the Christian’s disposal; principally to make praying a non-effective endeavour for the believer.
There is a dynamic power in praying, and undisputed wonderful results, when we do fervently and intelligently.
“The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. “
Prayer is not just an activity, a ritual, or an obligation. It is communion and communication that touches God’s heart, secures God’s attention, and provoke His will to act.
PRAYER is a spiritual response to God (spoken or unspoken).
PRAYER is the ONLY way you can get God to get things done on earth and in your life. Through prayer, you grant heaven’s permission for earthly interference. And without it, the will of God cannot be done on earth, and in your life as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10
JESUS PRAYED TO GET THINGS DONE ON EARTH.
Even Jesus – who is God – depended on prayers and petitions to get things done when He walked the earth in human flesh. He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save Him. And He was heard because of His reverent submission (Heb. 5:7). Jesus’ lifestyle of prayer is sufficient to serve as a motivation for those called out to follow His footsteps. Jesus prayed with tears and loud cries, so why wouldn’t I do the same.
I invite you to discover your power, authority, and rights on earth and to position yourself to become a channel of power for heavenly influence on earth’s affairs. Heaven depends on you, and the earth needs you. Without you, heaven will not and without heaven, earth cannot.
Heaven will require your permission to impact your life and affect your world.
Because of the nature of prayer, praying without intelligence or not applying the principles of prayer, makes the efforts in prayer usually ineffective. I would even say it is a waste of time. We need to know how to approach God and learn how to pray with understanding, the kind of prayers God responds to.
We must pray in a way that embodies the principles God has given us in His word.
I urge you therefore, as we depend on the Holy Spirit, to humble yourself under the inspiration of God as we look together into this critical aspect of our faith. So that we can begin and continue to harness the power of effective prayer unto great accomplishment.
The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and sober, so you can pray.
1 Peter 4:7
You are blessed!
