Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

Weapon Of Spiritual Warfare~Prayer

Throughout history every outstanding man and and woman of God has been a person of prayer. 

Prayer is one of the Christian disciple's most powerful weapons. 

In prayer, the believer receives the infilling of divine energy.

After Jesus had prayed and fasted for forty days, He victoriously defeated Satan single-handedly in the greatest spiritual struggle ever recorded.

The prayer closet is actually the counsel chamber where divine commands are issued. 

In order to possess great dominion, you must constantly return to the Master to receive instructions from Him.

The prayer closet is the heart-study place. This is not where the mind learns, it's where the heart becomes instructive. 

In prayer we learn about God, His blessings, and His anointings.

Jesus told Peter, "Flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 16:17).  

We learn more in an hour of devotion and prayer than in many hours of searching libraries and seeking out man's wisdom.

Divine revelation is brought into focus in the prayer closet. You won't find it anywhere else. 

Prayer is the key that unlocks the treasures of GOD. 

Prayer is Power.

Elijah demonstrated the dominion of prayer when he called upon GOD to send rain upon the land.

The New Testament points out that Elijah was a man like we are. The difference is, he knew how to pray.

The early Church prayed, and the place where they were assembled together was shaken. (See Acts 4:31.)

Paul and Silas prayed and sang songs in the inner cell of a Philippian jail at midnight.The strength of their prayer shook the jail itself and resulted in the salvation of the jailer. 

(See Acts 16: 25-34.)

The act of praying generates omnipotence. Prayer gives the frail human reed unshakable strength. 

If you do not know how to pray, you do not know the Power of GOD. 

Prayer is the most talked about, discussed, and the least used power available to mankind.

Oil, undiscovered, is an untapped resource. Coal, not mined, is an untapped source of power. But the greatest source of untapped power and resource is prayer.

All that prayer can do has never yet been defined. This tremendous source of power has never been fully researched or developed.

In his article,"Man the Unknown" published in Reader's Digest, Dr. alexis Carrel said: "As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer. It is the only power in the world that seems to overcome the so-called 'laws of nature.'

Through personal communication with the Creator, you can do things you could never do before.

Pray without ceasing, and you will know dominion in your life. Continual communion with the Commander assures victory!
