PRAYER IS POWERFUL!A prayerless Christian, irrespective of whatever cogent excuses, will be powerless to contend and receive the blessings God already gave, will be spiritually useless and will end up with lots of problems, becoming a puppet of Satan and a problem to everyone! Any excuse not to pray is a subtle trap that lures us away from the Lord and His goodness and blessings for us.
Prayer prepares and yields us to the Holy Spirit, so that our gifts can flow out selflessly and freely to bless others.By wholehearted prayer, the Holy Spirit helps us die to our selfish, self centered ways reaching out to bear much fruit for God's Kingdom that shouldl remain. Prayer delivers us from carnality, sin and demonic manipulations. Prayer, coupled with the sound knowledge of God's Word saves us from being ignorant of the enemy's devises and so beat the enemy and cast him out easily
Prayer heals unbelief, the sin that takes people to hell,. but opens our hearts to revelations and divine insights to enjoy, understand, receive the Word of God enthusiastically, grow and mature in the Lord.
Prayer exterminates selfishness, pride, disobedience, stubbornness, lust, sexual immorality and all forms of perversion.
Prayer that's wholesome, earnest and very honest is better than counseling. Effective prayer actually makes God your counselor and that's awesome! Proverbs 3:5,6; Psalm 32:8.
Prayer makes us easily repentant, forgiving, tenderhearted and compassionate to help and bless others through givi passionate intercession and never curse anyone.
Our fasting, prayer and other spiritual sacrifices ultimately enable us to OBEY God, and then our obedience brings the breakthrough. Jeremiah 7:21-23As Christians, we don't pray against people, we pray for people to receive all the benefits and blessings that are in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
