Mobilising, training and equipping Christians for prayer
Spiritual workers and Christians in general are not mercilessly handed over to the assaults of the wiles of the devil. The fact remains though that there are onslaughts, conflicts and temptations against them, and that many suffer spiritual injury in the process.
It is important that we intercede purposefully for new converts. Allow the Holy Spirit to bring them to spiritual maturity and to change them to be conformed to the image of Christ.
God speaks to us through His Word and through prayer we respond. George Müller wrote: “..my heart being nourished by the Truth, being brought into true fellowship with God, I speak to my Father and to my Friend about the things that He has brought before me in his precious Word.”
Every believer can experience personal revival daily and in fact, should experience it.
Why is the church so powerless? Why does it have so little effect in the world? Why can’t the church succeed in taking the gospel to all the unreached nations? Why do people become converted but fail to grow to spiritual maturity?
The accounts of prayer in the Bible are the stories of individuals who laid hold of God and He performed miracles in answer to their prayers.
Jesus…said to them, “Let the children come to Me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:14
Just imagine how different the workplace and the economy would be, if believers were to pray in the marketplace for God’s kingdom to come and His will to be done.
The purpose of prayer walking is to pray on-site with insight. It is a spiritual act. We pray for the presence of God in a particular area, and for His Spirit to proclaim the kingdom of God physically and spiritually in that area.
Fear does not change anything; it only robs you of your strength for today. There is no better antidote for fear than knowledge (personal, experiential, faith knowledge) of God the Father.
All people struggle with feelings of guilt at some point. Some suppress these feelings and others are oppressed by their guilt feelings. What you do with your feelings of guilt, is your choice.
Forgiveness, together with grace, is what makes the gospel of Jesus Christ different from any other religion. Forgiveness builds on the foundation of grace. Whether we sin against God or people, the road to forgiveness is simply to ask forgiveness.
