The Weapon of Prayer
“ For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds ”-2 Corinthians 10:4
I can remember a popular song often sung by children, most especially during the Sunday school lessons,
“Prayer is the master’s key, prayer is the key, prayer is the master key, Jesus started with prayer and ended with prayer, prayer is the master key.”
This emphasizes on the importance of prayer and Jesus showed a perfect example of a prayerful life, no wonder he was able to triumph over the devil; however as Christians, an effective prayer life is not a negotiation but a must, because prayer is a vital weapon for triumphant living.
The anchor scripture already said that the weapon of our warfare is not carnal, that is to say, you don’t fight spiritual matters, by merely pushing them away or avoiding them, you fight spiritual battle through prayers because you wrestle against principalities and powers and apparently, the devil is always daring the faith of any Christian, but a prayer of faith guarantees victory.
Absolutely, there is no substitute or software for prayer as my husband Bishop David Oyedepo will always say, if you want to leave a triumphant live and enjoy rest on all facets of your life, then prayer should be taken as a priority in your life. Pray for your daily walk with Christ, prayer for the church of Christ, family and friends, and any other issue of concern, because you will never know when that tempting situation would come. Prayerfully order and monitor our ways and destiny, so you wouldn’t have to pay direly for your negligence tomorrow.
Understand that God acts in our affairs only in response to our prayers. A wise man asked: “If the success of the church, your family and friends, is dependent on your prayer, how successful will they be?” Think about that and take up the challenge today, because no one can do it for you. Commit continuously every aspect of your life to God’s hand and just enjoy the rest you derive from doing that. You will never know stress in your family in the name of Jesus Christ! Remember, you cannot build a sustainable prayer life without having Jesus as the lord of your life, he alone empowers one to pray, therefore you have to accept Jesus as your Lord and Personal Saviour, if you have made this decision you can say this prayer of faith.
