Your prayer life is a significant ingredient to you reaching your next level of destiny and growth in God. You cannot afford to live without it. The truth of the matter is, the scripture is right when it says “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
Do you recognize that there are demonic spiritual forces at work against you every day? The demonic realm wants access to the territories you have been given by God at all cost. They rejoice in the hopes of getting you off course, doubting your God and living powerless. Inevitably, your enemy wants to see you delay your own destiny, or subsequently, abort it all together.
Let’s take a journey in discovering how prayer can awaken the dormant power within you, release divine strategies, activate your angels of protection and bring you into closer intimacy with God Almighty. That’s where you become literally invisible and untraceable to the demonic world.
The reality is, if you are a believer of the Lord Jesus Christ and possess His Spirit who is alive on the inside of you, you are far from powerless (even on your worst day). The enemy may be able to somehow deceive you for a second, but at the remembrance of who you truly are and who lives on the inside of you, this illusion quickly evaporates into thin air.
The Word of our Lord reveals that “the earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of the righteous man makes tremendous power available (dynamic in its working)” (James 5:16 AMP).
Are you sleeping on your power?
This is the very power available to you to destroy the works of the enemy against you and those entrusted in your care. This power, when activated, will keep your enemies at bay. This power will keep you soaring higher and higher towards the glorious promises God has awaiting you at every level of your development and growth in Him.
So, if you and I are going to fulfill all that God has called us to do, we must do what Jesus encouraged His disciples to do when He said “…that men ought to always pray and not faint” or give up (Luke 18:1). We should always be in a state of building up our inner power through prayer. When doing so, we release it at the appropriate time against the advancements of hell against us and those we love. We have been charged to be unrelenting in seeing the Kingdom of God manifested before our very eyes.
There are three very important Kingdom manifestations that you and I need in order to live victoriously that can only be activated through prayer. The first Kingdom manifestation is the release of divine strategies from God to help us navigate through the terrains of life’s circumstances and to help us avoid pitfalls and hindrances designed to delay our progress. Through prayer we can seek God’s wisdom and guidance that can literally accelerate our progress and helps us win territories more rapidly. James 1:5-6 says “if any man lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”
The second Kingdom manifestation that prayer activates in our lives is heightened angelic assistance. God has assigned angels to keep us on the divine course He has set before us and to keep us away from stumbling blocks (Psalms 91:11-12). Our angels have been assigned to minister to us and strengthen us in moments of weariness – we are never alone (Luke 22:43). Through prayer we activate these powerful angelic beings to work for us concerning the will of God for our lives.
Lastly, prayer activates the Kingdom manifestation of God’s presence! Prayer brings the atmosphere of heaven into our lives and into whatever situation we are petitioning before God. Prayer deepens our connectivity and intimacy with God and fills us with His glory. The amazing thing is that the more we seek God in prayer, the more the enemy cannot locate us or locate anything that is connected to us. “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty (whose power no foe can withstand)” (Psalms 91:1 AMP). We become untraceable to demonic forces and can instantly recover anything the enemy stole from us.
Prayer is an exciting adventure with God that unlocks His unrelenting power within us and releases His Kingdom in our lives in a dynamic array of His glory that our adversary cannot penetrate or withstand. Simply put, your prayer life is a significant component to you living victoriously upon the earth, reaching your destiny and fulfilling your purpose in God.
Never stop praying!
