prayer is a weapon

Prayer is a weapon that has divine power to demolish strongholds.In fact, prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us so much that all the armors of our warfare hangs on, or activated by, prayer (Ephesians 6:18).

Ephesians 6:18

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

The Bible tells us that “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds”- 2 Corinthians 10:4.

Ephesians 6:10-12

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Don’t Be Lead Away

There are wars and rumors of wars raging wild across the earth. Yet when a spiritual battle comes up we have a hard time believing this is real. But Jesus reminds us to be mindful of the war raging. He said, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41 ). He had just completed the Passover meal with his disciples.

Jesus was emphasizing the importance of prayer in this on-going battle. The faith is to believe . When money is running low, when our children are going off the righteous path . when our relationships are plagued with disloyalty. Gods ministry have taken the best years of our lives,and it still seems to go under. For some there is alcohol and abuse in our homes trust me it takes a real fight to still believe God. But thank God for prayer because he hears  our prayers and it will be answer.

Jesus shared with the Apostle Peter the plan the enemy had for his life. Jesus didn’t hold back in letting him know the enemy was after him but he also gave Peter the solution to the problem. The plan of the enemy is to get us to doubt God and his word.

Matthew 26:40-41

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak

Luke 22:31-32

And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
