“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints”. Eph 6:18.
These past days, I have been sharing with you about all the armor of God that He’s given us. Now being fully dressed, it is time to begin to act. How will you act?
He said praying always, with all manner of prayer. Listen, if any of your body amour is missing, it can hinder your prayer from being answered.
If your prayer is not based on truth; have you noticed sometimes we pray based on rumour?
When I deal with issues, I always want to be sure my thoughts concerning it is the truth. I have found out people lie a lot even when they come to you.
Of what use is it to approach God with a lie? Somebody said somebody did something and based on that, you begin to pray.
Spend more time preparing to pray, that is when you will see result.
Your truth must be in place, your righteousness intact, your focus must be peace, knowing the finished work of Christ for you and others. Wear your shield of faith to stop those darts. Sometimes you are praying and you hear, will this ever change? Use your shield of faith.
Then make sure you are praying the word. Pray with words given to you by the Holy Spirit, don’t pray out of emotions, pray with Holy Ghost words.
That is why praying in the spirit is so important, and don’t forget to ask for interpretation.
I have learnt a lot of things in the course of prayer because of this.
I love to pray in tongues but I am also smart to always ask what is going on and many times I get to know the content of my prayer and I pick lots of wisdom from it because those are pure and holy thoughts of the Holy Spirit, not assumptions.
You can never go wrong praying in tongues. That’s why you should practice praying longer in tongues.
Pray in tongues from your home to work every day and always ask “Lord, what is going on? What am I saying?”. You will get it either immediately or later.
