Prayer is a weapon – Essential for a Victorious Christian Church
There is a God in heaven that rules and reigns over the whole universe. He always exists in all the affairs of mankind. He is everywhere, knows all things and is all powerful in all things. The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ needs to dwell and ponder on this fact in order to be successful in winning the hearts of lost souls in the world and in our families.
Isaiah 58:9:Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity 14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
The only way the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ can move forward is to have a vision with prayer being at the forefront. The most important element to God when dealing with the hearts of men is heart-felt prayer. Additionally, prayer should be the number one priority on the hearts of all that belong to God. Failure to pray could result in failure in this physical life and could also result in failure in a person’s spiritual life. When we don’t pray we are depriving ourselves of the assistance that the Lord wants to give us in our lives. Prayer also keeps up in love with man and with God. We are required by the Word of God to keep ourselves in the love of God. A life without prayer will be void of patience, faith and all the virtues that make for a strong Christian.
Assuredly prayer is a basic element of the Christian faith that no Christian can afford to be without. All successes of all plans, hopes, and dreams of any family, person, or organization etc., hinge on prayer. Yes prayer is a warfare that must be fought on a daily basis.
If there will be a great move of God in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, Christians will have to purpose in their hearts to watch and pray. This must be a consistent watching and praying even when the answer is not obvious. This is the real test in order to see a mighty and sincere work of the Lord. When sincere and on fire Christians come together in prayer the mighty power and anointing of God will supercharge the atmosphere and people will experience the Glory of God. Otherwise there may be a lot of fluff but no power of God will be present. Only the words and appearance of man will be presented and lifted up. God has ordained from the foundations of the world that in order for man to be effective in this life, there must be a line of communication with God.
