Prayer is a force in the hand of the believer when approached Scripturally. It is one of God’s covenant tools for the realization of our glorious destinies in Christ.
Jesus told His disciples a parable in Matthew 13:24-28: READ IT FROM YOUR BIBLE.
Everything contrary to good in the life of the believer is the work of the enemy. The devil is the believer’s number one enemy, and the Bible warns us against him in 1 Peter 5:8:
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
So behind that setback, that unending struggle and those continuous breakdowns is “an enemy”. But why is he so determined and hell-bent on seeing you fail? Look at what the Bible says concerning you in Isaiah 5:1-2: READ IT FROM YOUR BIBLE.
This is why the enemy is interested in you! He is jealous of you, because you are God’s choicest vine. By redemption through the blood of Jesus, you are planted on a most fruitful hill. Not only that, you are fenced and protected. God has invested His best in you. The Bible also tells us in Psalm 92:13-14: READ IT FROM YOUR BIBLE.
No wonder the enemy is so jealous! He wants you down like himself. Just like he did not rest until he got Adam out of the garden of Eden, he has vowed not to rest until he gets you off the course of your destiny. He is determined to see you don’t enter your Canaan, but he will not succeed, in Jesus’name!
James 4:7 says:
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
The devil can be stopped and arrested. Since force is the only language he understands, God has placed the force of prayer in our hands, to put him where he belongs.
