The Weapon Of Prayer

The Weapon Of Prayer
Ephesians 6:12 - 'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.'
It's time to pray saints of God. When people harm you, or misuse you. When they slander your name, lie on you, or disregard your very own desire to do the right thing. When you have changed, yet they will not let you live down your past, or when you stand for the truth and yet they tear you down, it's time to pray! Prayer is our weapon, not gossip, backbiting, slander, or violence! We as believers don't react to a spiritual devil by fighting in the physical realm. You can always tell a very immature Christian, because when they get upset or hurt, they will always revert back to worldly methods of revenge. But God said "HE" would fight our battles. Let's grow up Christians and not allow the devil to beat us up in the spirit realm while we shadow box him in the natural. You will get no where like that.
Prayer is your weapon! You can deal with the devil through prayer and if you are strategic, you can overcome his attacks! And when you develop a strong warfare prayer life, those enemies will reap the very attacks they are casting upon you! In other words, praying for them and wishing them no harm will cause God to react! God said in Prov. 6:17 , he hates "hands that shed innocent blood" and that's not just talking about death, but it's talking about hurting people that mean you no harm! We must never forget that God requires us to pray for those that do us wrong and that's not a weak cop out, but that puts your enemies in the hands of God for him to take revenge for you! So, again I say, pray instead of retaliating. When you are attacked and you feel that you have been wronged, pray for them and watch the vengeance of the Lord set it straight. Remember, God said "Touch not my anointed" and if you are chosen by him, the anointing resides within you! That means harm will come to them that harm you!
