Focus Scripture: 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. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Within these last few days, there has been so much going on in the lives of so many people. Everywhere we turn, people are requesting prayer for healing, guidance, restoration, provision and all around order in the Kingdom of God.
God is calling His people to a posture of prayer. The Word of God teaches us that although we walk as mortal men on this earth, we do not fight our battles as mortal men with physical weapons. But the weapons that we use have the divine power to demolish fortresses. They destroy arguments and anything that exalts itself higher than Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. One of these weapons is prayer.
As Christians, we are to:
Pray according to God’s Word, “No weapon formed against me and my family shall prosper and every evil tongue that rises against us in judgement shall be condemned.” Isaiah 54:17. Pray with power and authority. “I command complete and total healing, and all manner of sickness, disease and unclean spirits be cast out now, in the Name of Jesus.” Matthew 10:1. Pray with confidence. “These things I receive by faith, because Your word says if I ask anything according to Your will, I can have confidence that You hear me and because You hear me, You will answer my prayers.” 1 John 5:14-15.
We have to stop praying weak, lack luster, passive prayers. The enemy is wrecking havoc in our homes, on our jobs, in our communities and in our minds; and we are allowing him to, simply because we won’t use the weapons God gave us to fight back. Declare with me today, that you will pray with more passion, specificity, power, authority and confidence.
Now it’s your turn. You know your needs and those of the people you are connected to. Go before your Father and make your request known. If My people who are called by my name would humble themselves and pray…
