How to Make Prayer your Most Powerful Weapon

How to Make Prayer your Most Powerful Weapon

I want to begin to summarize this Prayer series with some key points, some important takeaways:

Come to God boldly in prayer. Approach the throne of God with a confidence to which there is no equal. We have that right. He gave it to us.

 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace,  that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Heb. 4:16, NKJV)

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:19, NKJV)

 

People hold hands as they pray during a memorial service outside the Aurora Municipal Center in Aurora, Colorado. The memorial was for the victims that were killed and wounded during the mass shooting at a movie theater last Friday. (Joshua Lott/Getty Images)

Know that God always hears your prayers. If we don’t believe that God hears our prayers, they will be weak and ineffective. And frankly, we won’t do it very often. We will see no point in it. We will approach it with the same confidence we have in wishing wells and Santa Clause. It is a lie and a tactic and trick of Satan to keep us from praying at all. God does hear our prayers and He wants us to keep them coming!

Effective prayer is not a feeling.  I hear people say, Pray until we feel something. We won’t find that in the Bible. Butterflies and profuse sweat doesn’t mean much when it comes to effective prayer. I mean if you need that kind of work out then go for it. But let’s stick to the Word on this one.  There is a scripture that talks about fervent and effectual prayer. Our fervency is spiritual. It is the prayer of faith that makes our prayers fervent and effectual. And faith is a spiritual force. If we get excited–no worries. No points off for it. But if Jesus can raise a young girl from the dead with two words (Luke 8:54, KJV) and not break a sweat we can be just as effective in our situations with all that power inside of us.

We pray with a knowing. What do we know? We know that if and when we pray that he hears us and if He hears us we will have what we ask for. Now that’s the Word!

And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for. (I John 5:15)
