Prayer so powerful but not used enough
So often we turn to prayer when it seems like we have already exhausted every other option accessible to us. Oh Lord my lights are about to be turned off please help me and the lights get shut off before we even get done with that prayer. Or a loved one is in the hospital on their death bed and now we turn to God because they are about to die.
We are in the midst of fierce battling and everyone is under attack. But this battle is taking place in the spiritual world. Because we do not actually see the war that is raging we do not think about it or even our role in the war. However we see the results of this war in our personal lives and throughout our community. We see men who are not functional in society, woman who shoulder the burden of the entire family putting them into deep depressions and children playing the roles of adults because of the lack of adults in their lives.
All this has been caused by the devil and demons. With all this going on we think it is okay to pray only when our already bad situation has become life threatening. As Gods children we have an obligation to war against the devil, demons, and all principalities. Not when we finally see it manifest in the physical but right now. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 say's Never stop praying. This is because we are in a ferocious war over souls and the devil hates you so much. If you stop praying than you are not destroying the strongholds in your life, your families life or in the community.
So lets never stop praying together and make sure that we reclaim what has been stolen from us.
