IT'S TIME FOR AGGRESSIVE PRAYER

PRAYER:  Heavenly Father, I need you to open up my heart to yearn for You to transform me into a man/woman of prayer.  My only way of communicating with you and getting to know You is through prayer.  The only way I can take the fight to the enemy is by prayer.  I am tired of being reactive.  I want to become proactive in my battle against sin and it’s author.  Use me to destroy the works of the enemy through prayer.  Amen! 

THE GOOD REPORT

James 5:16 (AMP)  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].

 

IT’S TIME FOR AGGRESSIVE PRAYER!

 

People complain about the state of the World, the condition of our nation and the increase in crime and immorality but how many of those who complain think (they) can do anything about it?   As Christians, we fail to realize how much power we have at our disposal through the name of Jesus Christ.  Our Lord has given us exceedingly great and precious promises!  (2 Peter 1:4)   He has given us power and authority over all the ability of the enemy. (Luke 10:19)

 

Every great revival in history was preceded by fervent prayer!  Both Prime Minister Churchill and President Roosevelt attributed much of the success during World War II to fervent prayer of the people.  Those same nations have now forsaken the Lord, their God, and it shows.  Join with us as we pray for a world wide outpouring of the Holy Spirit, accompanied by signs and wonders!   2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

 

I am not talking about wimpy ten second prayers.  When Jesus went to the garden to prayer, prior to his crucifixion, he labored in prayer, groaning in the spirit.  When the disciples were unable to cast the demon out of a young man, Jesus told them “this one only comes out by prayer and fasting.”  (Mark 9:29)

 

Believe it or not, the majority of Christians have not reached this level of prayer and therefore have not experienced this level of success over the enemy.  The beauty of prayer is that it’s effects can go where we cannot.  No prison doors can keep it out!  It has the ability to soften hardened hearts!  It can enable the spiritually blind to see!  And it is certainly necessary for a “revival” to take place!

 

If you have a son, daughter, mother or father who needs to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, PRAY FERVENTLY!  If you have a sickness, or know someone who is sick and doctors are unable to help, PRAY FERVENTLY!  If the fire is out in your church, PRAY FERVENTLY!  If your own spiritual life is lacking, PRAY FERVENTLY!  If you want to see evil conditions change for the better, PRAY FERVENTLY!  We are at WAR!  You don’t go in to war with a half-hearted spirit!

 

Ephesians 6:10-13  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
