God planted within each of us the desire to make a difference in our world—a difference that will bring good and not harm, peace and not strife, prosperity and not poverty. But too few of us realize that the groundwork for this overcoming lifestyle begins in our prayer closets. Not only is it the place of training and preparation, but it is also the place of overcoming.
There are battles still raging for the peoples of the earth, and those battles are fought in the spiritual realm before they manifest in the natural. I remind you that the spirit realm is the causal realm. If you prevail in the spirit, you will win in the natural. If you can learn the art of victory through intercession, then such struggles that steal the souls of humanity need not ever manifest at all.
The issue is not the power of our God, but how disciplined and prepared we are to win the battles of our spiritual war in prayer. (The Art of War, p. 17-18.)
May God show you where and how to target your prayer so that His light and truth neutralizes every dark and hidden operation of the enemy.
Ephesians 6:10-12, 18 MSG: God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels…Prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long.
