寶拉 懷特 幫忙 陈斯红✝️祈禱(禱告)

Dear​ ​Friend,
Welcome​ ​to​ ​my​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​on​ ​prayer.​ ​I​ ​hope​ ​throughout​ ​this​ ​series​ ​you​ ​gain​ ​an​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​the different​ ​types​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​identifying​ ​the​ ​critical​ ​elements​ ​of​ ​spiritual​ ​warfare​ ​so​ ​you​ ​can​ ​defeat​ ​the​ ​enemy fighting​ ​you.​ ​Let’s​ ​begin​ ​with​ ​what​ ​the​ ​Bible​ ​says​ ​regarding​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​understanding​ ​there​ ​is​ ​more​ ​to​ ​prayer than​ ​just​ ​“praying.”
Luke​ ​11:1-4​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“And​ ​it​ ​came​ ​to​ ​pass,​ ​that,​ ​as​ ​he​ ​was​ ​praying​ ​in​ ​a​ ​certain​ ​place,​ ​when​ ​he​ ​ceased,​ ​one of​ ​his​ ​disciples​ ​said​ ​unto​ ​him,​ ​Lord,​ ​teach​ ​us​ ​to​ ​pray,​ ​as​ ​John​ ​also​ ​taught​ ​his​ ​disciples.​ ​2)​ ​And​ ​he​ ​said​ ​unto them,​ ​When​ ​ye​ ​pray,​ ​say,​ ​Our​ ​Father​ ​which​ ​art​ ​in​ ​heaven,​ ​Hallowed​ ​be​ ​thy​ ​name.​ ​Thy​ ​kingdom​ ​come.​ ​Thy will​ ​be​ ​done,​ ​as​ ​in​ ​heaven,​ ​so​ ​in​ ​earth.​ ​3)​ ​Give​ ​us​ ​day​ ​by​ ​day​ ​our​ ​daily​ ​bread.​ ​4)​ ​And​ ​forgive​ ​us​ ​our​ ​sins;​ ​for we​ ​also​ ​forgive​ ​every​ ​one​ ​that​ ​is​ ​indebted​ ​to​ ​us.​ ​And​ ​lead​ ​us​ ​not​ ​into​ ​temptation;​ ​but​ ​deliver​ ​us​ ​from​ ​evil.”
Ephesians​ ​6:18​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Praying​ ​always​ ​with​ ​all​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​supplication​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit,​ ​and​ ​watching thereunto​ ​with​ ​all​ ​perseverance​ ​and​ ​supplication​ ​for​ ​all​ ​saints;​ ​(NASU​ ​version)​ ​“With​ ​all​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​petition pray​ ​at​ ​all​ ​times​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit,​ ​and​ ​with​ ​this​ ​in​ ​view,​ ​be​ ​on​ ​the​ ​alert​ ​with​ ​all​ ​perseverance​ ​and​ ​petition​ ​for​ ​all​ ​the saints,​ ​“
The​ ​Amplified​ ​translation​ ​reads:​ ​“Pray…​ ​with​ ​all​ ​manner​ ​of​ ​prayer.”​ ​Paul​ ​infers​ ​that​ ​there​ ​are​ ​different​ ​types of​ ​prayer,​ ​if​ ​there​ ​weren’t,​ ​he​ ​would​ ​have​ ​simply​ ​said,​ ​“praying​ ​always.”
The​ ​Bible​ ​teaches​ ​several​ ​kinds​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​different​ ​laws​ ​or​ ​principles​ ​governing​ ​them.​ ​For​ ​instance,​ ​in​ ​the field​ ​of​ ​sports​ ​you​ ​wouldn’t​ ​play​ ​basketball​ ​with​ ​football​ ​rules,​ ​it​ ​wouldn’t​ ​work!
We​ ​will​ ​look​ ​at​ ​the​ ​different​ ​types​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​extensively​ ​and​ ​when​ ​you​ ​would​ ​pray​ ​which​ ​prayer.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​going to​ ​examine​ ​how​ ​to​ ​have​ ​an​ ​effective​ ​prayer​ ​life,​ ​building​ ​blocks​ ​for​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​spiritual​ ​foundation.
What​ ​are​ ​the​ ​primary​ ​types​ ​of​ ​Prayer​ ​found​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Word?​ ​There​ ​are​ ​8​ ​different​ ​types​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​the​ ​Bible references:
1.​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Faith:
©​ ​Paula​ ​White​ ​Ministries​ ​2017 1

Matthew​ ​21:22​ ​(KJV),​ ​“And​ ​all​ ​things,​ ​whatsoever​ ​ye​ ​shall ask​ ​in​ ​prayer,​ ​believing,​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​receive.”
This​ ​prayer​ ​is​ ​always​ ​to​ ​be​ ​based​ ​on​ ​God’s​ ​revealed​ ​will​ ​in​ ​His​ ​Word.​ ​For​ ​instance,​ ​3​ ​John​ ​2​ ​says,​ ​“Beloved,​ ​I wish​ ​above​ ​all​ ​things​ ​that​ ​thou​ ​mayest​ ​prosper​ ​and​ ​be​ ​in​ ​health​ ​even​ ​as​ ​thy​ ​soul​ ​prospereth.”​ ​God​ ​says​ ​it​ ​is​ ​His will​ ​for​ ​you​ ​to​ ​have​ ​material​ ​prosperity,​ ​your​ ​bodily​ ​healing​ ​and​ ​health​ ​and​ ​for​ ​your​ ​soul​ ​to​ ​prosper.​ ​So,​ ​when you​ ​get​ ​sick,​ ​how​ ​do​ ​you​ ​pray?​ ​You​ ​pray​ ​the​ ​prayer​ ​of​ ​faith,​ ​Not​ ​“IF”​ ​it​ ​be​ ​your​ ​will,​ ​heal​ ​me.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​already God’s​ ​will​ ​for​ ​you​ ​to​ ​be​ ​healthy!​ ​God​ ​does​ ​not​ ​change,​ ​His​ ​will​ ​does​ ​not​ ​change.​ ​You​ ​stand​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Word​ ​of God,​ ​believing,​ ​saying,​ ​“Thank​ ​you​ ​for​ ​my​ ​healing​ ​Lord!​ ​Your​ ​WORD​ ​says,​ ​“​ ​You​ ​are​ ​the​ ​God​ ​that​ ​healeth thee,​ ​You​ ​gave​ ​us​ ​power​ ​to​ ​heal​ ​all​ ​manner​ ​of​ ​sickness​ ​(Matthew​ ​10:1),​ ​You​ ​were​ ​wounded​ ​for​ ​our transgressions,​ ​bruised​ ​for​ ​our​ ​iniquities,​ ​the​ ​chastisement​ ​of​ ​our​ ​peace​ ​was​ ​upon​ ​you​ ​and​ ​by​ ​your​ ​stripes​ ​I​ ​am healed!”
An​ ​example​ ​of​ ​a​ ​prayer​ ​by​ ​faith​ ​might​ ​be​ ​in​ ​a​ ​situation​ ​where​ ​you​ ​have​ ​a​ ​desire​ ​for​ ​a​ ​home.​ ​Maybe​ ​you​ ​have been​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​buy​ ​a​ ​place​ ​of​ ​your​ ​own​ ​and​ ​it​ ​has​ ​not​ ​worked​ ​out?​ ​God​ ​is​ ​a​ ​God​ ​of​ ​supernatural​ ​power,​ ​He​ ​is​ ​a God​ ​of​ ​miracles.
“Father,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​natural​ ​it​ ​seems​ ​impossible,​ ​but​ ​You​ ​are​ ​the​ ​God​ ​of​ ​possible.​ ​Nothing​ ​is​ ​impossible​ ​with​ ​You!​ ​I pray​ ​that​ ​if​ ​it​ ​pleases​ ​You,​ ​intervene​ ​on​ ​my​ ​behalf​ ​for​ ​a​ ​home​ ​for​ ​my​ ​family.​ ​Everything​ ​in​ ​the​ ​natural​ ​is against​ ​me,​ ​but​ ​You​ ​are​ ​for​ ​me​ ​and​ ​nothing​ ​is​ ​impossible​ ​with​ ​You.​ ​Let​ ​this​ ​be​ ​a​ ​testimony​ ​of​ ​Your​ ​goodness and​ ​glory!​ ​I​ ​believe​ ​Lord,​ ​in​ ​You​ ​I​ ​have​ ​strength​ ​and​ ​hope!​ ​Provide​ ​the​ ​right​ ​place​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​sanctuary​ ​for You​ ​we​ ​can​ ​dwell​ ​in!​ ​Let​ ​it​ ​be​ ​a​ ​place​ ​dedicated​ ​to​ ​You!​ ​In​ ​Your​ ​time,​ ​in​ ​Your​ ​will,​ ​I​ ​stand​ ​on​ ​You​ ​as​ ​my Rock,​ ​my​ ​God​ ​of​ ​miracles!​ ​In​ ​Jesus’​ ​name,​ ​Amen!”
2.​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Consecration:
Luke​ ​22:42​ ​(KJV),​ ​“Saying,​ ​Father,​ ​if​ ​thou​ ​be​ ​willing, remove​ ​this​ ​cup​ ​from​ ​me:​ ​nevertheless​ ​not​ ​my​ ​will,​ ​but thine,​ ​be​ ​done.”
©​ ​Paula​ ​White​ ​Ministries​ ​2017 2

This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​prayer​ ​of​ ​dedication​ ​of​ ​our​ ​lives​ ​for​ ​God’s​ ​use.​ ​To​ ​“consecrate”​ ​means,​ ​“to​ ​make​ ​or​ ​declare​ ​sacred or​ ​holy,​ ​to​ ​set​ ​apart​ ​or​ ​to​ ​devote​ ​to​ ​the​ ​service​ ​or​ ​worship​ ​of​ ​God.”​ ​It​ ​means​ ​to​ ​go​ ​anywhere​ ​and​ ​do​ ​anything for​ ​God.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​type​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​Jesus​ ​prayed​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Garden​ ​of​ ​Gethsemane​ ​(Luke​ ​22:42)​ ​“Saying,​ ​Father​ ​if thou​ ​be​ ​willing,​ ​remove​ ​this​ ​cup​ ​from​ ​me:​ ​nevertheless,​ ​not​ ​my​ ​will​ ​but​ ​thine​ ​be​ ​done.”​ ​In​ ​other​ ​words,​ ​Jesus was​ ​saying:​ ​“I​ ​don’t​ ​want​ ​to​ ​go​ ​through​ ​with​ ​this​ ​Father…”​ ​He​ ​asked​ ​3​ ​times​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Father​ ​to​ ​take​ ​this​ ​cup from​ ​Him,​ ​“I​ ​don’t​ ​want​ ​to​ ​do​ ​this,​ ​but​ ​not​ ​my​ ​will,​ ​Your​ ​will​ ​be​ ​done!”
When​ ​do​ ​we​ ​pray​ ​this?​ ​For​ ​personal​ ​dedication​ ​and​ ​devotion​ ​to​ ​God.​ ​Sometimes​ ​you​ ​want​ ​“tall,​ ​dark​ ​and handsome,”​ ​God​ ​wants​ ​you​ ​for​ ​this​ ​season…​ ​The​ ​prayer​ ​of​ ​Consecration​ ​is​ ​to​ ​die​ ​to​ ​self​ ​desires​ ​for​ ​His​ ​will.
John​ ​3:30​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“He​ ​must​ ​increase,​ ​but​ ​I​ ​must​ ​decrease.”
An​ ​example​ ​of​ ​a​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Consecration​ ​from​ ​my​ ​book​ ​“Prayer​ ​Confessions”:
“I​ ​ask​ ​You​ ​Lord,​ ​to​ ​open​ ​my​ ​spiritual​ ​eyes​ ​and​ ​ears​ ​that​ ​I​ ​may​ ​see​ ​my​ ​ways​ ​of​ ​error,​ ​pride,​ ​rebellion​ ​and disobedience​ ​that​ ​would​ ​prevent​ ​me​ ​from​ ​walking​ ​in​ ​Your​ ​favor.​ ​Favor​ ​begins​ ​with​ ​the​ ​fear​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Lord according​ ​to​ ​Your​ ​word.​ ​I​ ​ask​ ​that​ ​my​ ​life​ ​would​ ​align​ ​with​ ​respect​ ​and​ ​admiration​ ​for​ ​you​ ​God.​ ​Bring​ ​course correction​ ​to​ ​every​ ​area​ ​that​ ​opens​ ​doors​ ​of​ ​disobedience​ ​in​ ​my​ ​life,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​name​ ​of​ ​Jesus.​ ​I​ ​submit​ ​myself​ ​to Your​ ​Lordship​ ​and​ ​the​ ​will​ ​of​ ​God​ ​for​ ​my​ ​life.”
There​ ​must​ ​be​ ​a​ ​humility​ ​of​ ​Who​ ​God​ ​is​ ​in​ ​your​ ​life​ ​and​ ​your​ ​absolute​ ​giving​ ​over​ ​to​ ​His​ ​will.​ ​God​ ​is​ ​a​ ​God​ ​of grace​ ​and​ ​mercy​ ​and​ ​love.​ ​A​ ​trust​ ​in​ ​Him​ ​and​ ​His​ ​desire​ ​must​ ​take​ ​precedence​ ​over​ ​our​ ​own​ ​fleshly​ ​desires. Remember,​ ​He​ ​knows​ ​your​ ​heart​ ​and​ ​your​ ​needs.
I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​teaching​ ​you​ ​on​ ​the​ ​8​ ​types​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​with​ ​numbers​ ​3-5​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​email! Praying​ ​with​ ​you,

Dear​ ​Friend,
In​ ​my​ ​last​ ​email​ ​in​ ​this​ ​series,​ ​I​ ​showed​ ​you​ ​the​ ​”Prayer​ ​of​ ​Faith”​ ​from​ ​Matthew​ ​21:22,​ ​and​ ​”The​ ​Prayer​ ​of Consecration”​ ​from​ ​Luke​ ​22:42.​ ​In​ ​this​ ​email,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​continuing​ ​with​ ​the​ ​next​ ​3​ ​types​ ​of​ ​prayer,​ ​”The​ ​Prayer of​ ​Commitment”,​ ​”The​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Worship”,​ ​and​ ​”The​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Agreement”.
Prayer​ ​of​ ​Commitment:
1​ ​Peter​ ​5:7​ ​(KJV),​ ​“Casting​ ​all​ ​your​ ​care​ ​upon​ ​him;​ ​for​ ​he​ ​careth​ ​for​ ​you.”
Philippians​ ​4:6,​ ​7​ ​(NIV),​ ​“Do​ ​not​ ​be​ ​anxious​ ​about​ ​anything,​ ​but​ ​in​ ​every​ ​situation,​ ​by​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​petition, with​ ​thanksgiving,​ ​present​ ​your​ ​requests​ ​to​ ​God.​ ​7​ ​And​ ​the​ ​peace​ ​of​ ​God,​ ​which​ ​transcends​ ​all​ ​understanding, will​ ​guard​ ​your​ ​hearts​ ​and​ ​your​ ​minds​ ​in​ ​Christ​ ​Jesus.”
“Careful”​ ​(Greek),​ ​means​ ​“be​ ​anxious​ ​about​ ​nothing,​ ​take​ ​no​ ​thought.”​ ​It​ ​means​ ​you​ ​are​ ​not​ ​to​ ​tolerate​ ​anxiety or​ ​worry.​ ​God​ ​alone​ ​can​ ​and​ ​will​ ​help​ ​you​ ​if​ ​you​ ​give​ ​it​ ​all​ ​over​ ​to​ ​Him.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​not​ ​biblical​ ​to​ ​worry,​ ​give​ ​it​ ​to God.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​prayer​ ​of​ ​commitment!​ ​And​ ​when​ ​you​ ​pray​ ​it​ ​the​ ​Bible​ ​says​ ​He​ ​will​ ​give​ ​you​ ​a​ ​peace​ ​that passes​ ​all​ ​understanding.​ ​“Peace”​ ​(Greek),​ ​means​ ​“to​ ​join,​ ​peace,​ ​by​ ​implication​ ​prosperity.”​ ​“That​ ​passes” (Greek),​ ​means​ ​“to​ ​hold​ ​oneself​ ​above,​ ​superior,​ ​higher,​ ​supreme.”​ ​“All​ ​understanding”​ ​(Greek),​ ​means “intellect,​ ​the​ ​mind,​ ​meaning.”
An​ ​example​ ​of​ ​A​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Commitment​ ​from​ ​my​ ​book​ ​“Prayer​ ​Confessions”:
“Lord​ ​You​ ​order​ ​my​ ​footsteps​ ​according​ ​to​ ​Your​ ​word.​ ​I​ ​trust​ ​you​ ​with​ ​every​ ​step​ ​I​ ​take.​ ​I​ ​do​ ​not​ ​resist​ ​the moving​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​in​ ​my​ ​life.​ ​Lead​ ​me​ ​Lord,​ ​as​ ​I​ ​completely​ ​surrender​ ​and​ ​commit​ ​my​ ​life​ ​to​ ​You.​ ​I ask​ ​for​ ​wisdom​ ​which​ ​You​ ​will​ ​give​ ​me​ ​liberally​ ​according​ ​to​ ​James​ ​1:5.​ ​I​ ​will​ ​be​ ​led​ ​by​ ​Your​ ​Spirit.​ ​I​ ​shut off​ ​and​ ​resist​ ​every​ ​voice​ ​that​ ​contradicts​ ​Your​ ​voice.​ ​Forgive​ ​me​ ​Lord​ ​for​ ​doing​ ​my​ ​own​ ​thing,​ ​for​ ​rebelling against​ ​You​ ​and​ ​being​ ​stubborn.​ ​I​ ​thank​ ​you​ ​for​ ​never​ ​leaving​ ​or​ ​forsaking​ ​me.​ ​I​ ​turn​ ​from​ ​my​ ​way​ ​of​ ​life​ ​and the​ ​plans​ ​that​ ​I​ ​have​ ​for​ ​myself​ ​and​ ​turn​ ​to​ ​Your​ ​way​ ​of​ ​life​ ​and​ ​the​ ​plans​ ​that​ ​You​ ​have​ ​for​ ​me,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​name​ ​of Jesus!​ ​In​ ​order​ ​to​ ​follow​ ​You​ ​Lord,​ ​I​ ​forsake​ ​everything​ ​that​ ​You​ ​ask​ ​me​ ​to.​ ​I​ ​will​ ​not​ ​be​ ​led​ ​astray​ ​by​ ​wicked and​ ​deceitful​ ​spirits​ ​that​ ​are​ ​operating​ ​and​ ​influencing​ ​people​ ​and​ ​situations​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​ensnare​ ​me.”
Prayer​ ​of​ ​Worship:
©​ ​Paula​ ​White​ ​Ministries​ ​2017 4

Acts​ ​13:2​ ​(KJV),​ ​“As​ ​they​ ​ministered​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Lord,​ ​and​ ​fasted,​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Ghost​ ​said,​ ​Separate​ ​me​ ​Barnabas​ ​and Saul​ ​for​ ​the​ ​work​ ​whereunto​ ​I​ ​have​ ​called​ ​them.”
Luke​ ​24:​ ​52,​ ​53​ ​(NIV),​ ​“​ ​Then​ ​they​ ​worshiped​ ​him​ ​and​ ​returned​ ​to​ ​Jerusalem​ ​with​ ​great​ ​joy.​ ​53​ ​And​ ​they stayed​ ​continually​ ​at​ ​the​ ​temple,​ ​praising​ ​God.”
The​ ​prayer​ ​of​ ​Worship​ ​is​ ​to​ ​give​ ​Him​ ​honor,​ ​homage,​ ​respect​ ​&​ ​exalt​ ​Him​ ​for​ ​His​ ​worth.​ ​Psalm​ ​48​ ​says, “Great​ ​is​ ​the​ ​Lord​ ​and​ ​greatly​ ​to​ ​be​ ​praised​ ​in​ ​the​ ​city​ ​of​ ​our​ ​God.”​ ​Psalm​ ​72​ ​says,​ ​“Blessed​ ​be​ ​the​ ​Lord​ ​our God,​ ​the​ ​God​ ​of​ ​Israel,​ ​who​ ​only​ ​doeth​ ​wondrous​ ​things.”​ ​Psalm​ ​97​ ​says,​ ​“The​ ​Lord​ ​reigneth,​ ​let​ ​the​ ​earth rejoice,​ ​let​ ​the​ ​multitude​ ​of​ ​the​ ​isles​ ​be​ ​glad.”​ ​The​ ​Psalmist​ ​is​ ​saying,​ ​“I​ ​exalt​ ​You​ ​God,​ ​I​ ​worship​ ​You,​ ​I Praise​ ​You!”
“Father,​ ​You​ ​are​ ​the​ ​Rock​ ​on​ ​which​ ​we​ ​stand.​ ​You​ ​are​ ​worthy​ ​to​ ​be​ ​praise​ ​and​ ​exalted.​ ​You​ ​are​ ​the​ ​reason​ ​we wake​ ​up​ ​in​ ​the​ ​morning,​ ​and​ ​when​ ​we​ ​go​ ​to​ ​sleep​ ​we​ ​hope​ ​to​ ​have​ ​thoughts​ ​of​ ​You.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​none​ ​like​ ​You Lord,​ ​You​ ​are​ ​our​ ​Strength​ ​and​ ​our​ ​Refuge.​ ​We​ ​cry​ ​out​ ​Your​ ​name​ ​and​ ​only​ ​Your​ ​name​ ​above​ ​everything​ ​and everyone.​ ​We​ ​come​ ​before​ ​You​ ​simply​ ​because​ ​You​ ​are​ ​worthy​ ​and​ ​our​ ​God.​ ​Lord​ ​there​ ​is​ ​nothing​ ​greater than​ ​You.​ ​We​ ​wait​ ​for​ ​the​ ​swift​ ​move​ ​of​ ​Your​ ​hand.​ ​Our​ ​hope​ ​is​ ​in​ ​You​ ​and​ ​You​ ​are​ ​our​ ​safe​ ​place.​ ​You created​ ​the​ ​heavens​ ​and​ ​the​ ​earth​ ​and​ ​Your​ ​will​ ​and​ ​Your​ ​Word​ ​is​ ​a​ ​guide​ ​and​ ​a​ ​grace​ ​for​ ​us.​ ​We​ ​cry​ ​in worship​ ​of​ ​You​ ​God​ ​because​ ​without​ ​You​ ​we​ ​are​ ​nothing.​ ​Jesus​ ​Your​ ​sacrifice​ ​and​ ​love​ ​is​ ​like​ ​a​ ​sweet​ ​gift​ ​we don’t​ ​deserve,​ ​Father​ ​Your​ ​will​ ​and​ ​Your​ ​plan​ ​for​ ​our​ ​life​ ​is​ ​perfect,​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​You​ ​are​ ​our​ ​comfort​ ​and​ ​our guide.​ ​We​ ​worship​ ​You​ ​God!”
Prayer​ ​in​ ​Agreement:
Matthew​ ​18:19-20​ ​(KJV)​ ​“Again​ ​I​ ​say​ ​unto​ ​you,​ ​That​ ​if​ ​two​ ​of​ ​you​ ​shall​ ​agree​ ​on​ ​earth​ ​as​ ​touching​ ​any​ ​thing that​ ​they​ ​shall​ ​ask,​ ​it​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​done​ ​for​ ​them​ ​of​ ​my​ ​Father​ ​which​ ​is​ ​in​ ​heaven.​ ​20)​ ​For​ ​where​ ​two​ ​or​ ​three​ ​are gathered​ ​together​ ​in​ ​my​ ​name,​ ​there​ ​am​ ​I​ ​in​ ​the​ ​midst​ ​of​ ​them.”
It​ ​is​ ​saying​ ​that​ ​when​ ​two​ ​or​ ​more​ ​gather​ ​together,​ ​in​ ​perfect​ ​agreement​ ​together​ ​with​ ​a​ ​specific​ ​prayer​ ​put before​ ​God,​ ​He​ ​is​ ​there​ ​with​ ​them.​ ​How​ ​powerful​ ​is​ ​that!​ ​Nothing​ ​is​ ​preventing​ ​Jesus​ ​from​ ​hearing​ ​the​ ​prayer and​ ​in​ ​fact​ ​being​ ​active​ ​in​ ​the​ ​gathering​ ​together​ ​of​ ​those​ ​coming​ ​in​ ​agreement.

When​ ​we​ ​come​ ​in​ ​agreement​ ​with​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​in​ ​accordance​ ​with​ ​Gods​ ​will,​ ​it​ ​can​ ​be​ ​like​ ​the​ ​power​ ​of​ ​prayer is​ ​magnified.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​an​ ​aspect​ ​of​ ​this​ ​like​ ​intercessory​ ​prayer,​ ​but​ ​not​ ​simply​ ​the​ ​praying​ ​for​ ​another,​ ​but coming​ ​together​ ​in​ ​one​ ​accord​ ​and​ ​praying​ ​with​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​agreeing.
“In​ ​the​ ​name​ ​of​ ​Jesus,​ ​we​ ​come​ ​together​ ​in​ ​agreement,​ ​believing​ ​by​ ​faith,​ ​in​ ​accordance​ ​with​ ​Your​ ​will​ ​and Your​ ​holy​ ​word,​ ​that​ ​when​ ​two​ ​or​ ​more​ ​are​ ​gathered,​ ​You​ ​are​ ​here​ ​with​ ​us.​ ​We​ ​petition​ ​heaven​ ​on​ ​our​ ​behalf, that​ ​You​ ​supernaturally​ ​intervene​ ​for​ ​our​ ​situation​ ​and​ ​move​ ​mountains.​ ​We​ ​deploy​ ​Your​ ​Word​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Blood of​ ​Jesus​ ​on​ ​our​ ​behalf.​ ​Go​ ​before​ ​us​ ​and​ ​make​ ​the​ ​crooked​ ​ways​ ​straight.​ ​Nothing​ ​is​ ​impossible!”
Remember-​ ​this​ ​doesn’t​ ​mean​ ​that​ ​your​ ​individual​ ​prayers​ ​to​ ​God​ ​are​ ​ineffective​ ​or​ ​lacking.​ ​Your​ ​individual prayer​ ​life​ ​is​ ​the​ ​most​ ​important​ ​this,​ ​and​ ​God​ ​hears​ ​all​ ​your​ ​prayers,​ ​and​ ​answers​ ​them.​ ​It​ ​simply​ ​means​ ​that the​ ​more​ ​God’s​ ​people​ ​gather,​ ​in​ ​agreement,​ ​the​ ​more​ ​powerful​ ​it​ ​is.​ ​BOTH​ ​are​ ​important!
I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​teaching​ ​you​ ​on​ ​the​ ​8​ ​types​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​with​ ​numbers​ ​6-8​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​email! Praying​ ​with​ ​you,

Dear​ ​Friend,
This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​3rd​ ​email​ ​of​ ​this​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​on​ ​prayer.​ ​In​ ​my​ ​last​ ​email,​ ​I​ ​showed​ ​you​ ​these​ ​3​ ​types:​ ​”The Prayer​ ​of​ ​Commitment”,​ ​”The​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Worship”,​ ​and​ ​”The​ ​Prayer​ ​of​ ​Agreement”.​ ​Today,​ ​in​ ​this​ ​part,​ ​we will​ ​go​ ​over​ ​”Prayer​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit”,​ ​”United​ ​Prayer,​ ​and​ ​”Intercessory​ ​Prayer”.
Prayer​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit:
1​ ​Corinthians​ ​14:2,​ ​14-15​ ​(KJV),​ ​“For​ ​he​ ​that​ ​speaketh​ ​in​ ​an​ ​unknown​ ​tongue​ ​speaketh​ ​not​ ​unto​ ​men,​ ​but​ ​unto God:​ ​for​ ​no​ ​man​ ​understandeth​ ​him;​ ​howbeit​ ​in​ ​the​ ​spirit​ ​he​ ​speaketh​ ​mysteries.”​ ​“14​ ​For​ ​if​ ​I​ ​pray​ ​in​ ​an unknown​ ​tongue,​ ​my​ ​spirit​ ​prayeth,​ ​but​ ​my​ ​understanding​ ​is​ ​unfruitful.​ ​15)​ ​What​ ​is​ ​it​ ​then?​ ​I​ ​will​ ​pray​ ​with​ ​the spirit,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​will​ ​pray​ ​with​ ​the​ ​understanding​ ​also:​ ​I​ ​will​ ​sing​ ​with​ ​the​ ​spirit,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​will​ ​sing​ ​with​ ​the understanding​ ​also.”
Ephesians​ ​6:18​ ​(NIV),​ ​“And​ ​pray​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​on​ ​all​ ​occasions​ ​with​ ​all​ ​kinds​ ​of​ ​prayers​ ​and​ ​requests.​ ​With​ ​this in​ ​mind,​ ​be​ ​alert​ ​and​ ​always​ ​keep​ ​on​ ​praying​ ​for​ ​all​ ​the​ ​Lord’s​ ​people.”
Romans​ ​8:26​ ​(NIV),​ ​“In​ ​the​ ​same​ ​way,​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​helps​ ​us​ ​in​ ​our​ ​weakness.​ ​We​ ​do​ ​not​ ​know​ ​what​ ​we​ ​ought​ ​to pray​ ​for,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​himself​ ​intercedes​ ​for​ ​us​ ​through​ ​wordless​ ​groans.”
We​ ​are​ ​guided​ ​and​ ​comforted​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit,​ ​and​ ​when​ ​we​ ​pray​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit,​ ​whether​ ​praying​ ​in​ ​tongues, groaning​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit,​ ​or​ ​any​ ​number​ ​of​ ​“sounds,”​ ​it​ ​becomes​ ​God​ ​guiding​ ​us.​ ​Although​ ​it​ ​begins​ ​with intentional​ ​groanings​ ​or​ ​speaking​ ​it​ ​can​ ​supernaturally​ ​elevate.​ ​Sometimes​ ​this​ ​can​ ​be​ ​difficult​ ​to​ ​explain because​ ​people​ ​try​ ​to​ ​think​ ​logically,​ ​and​ ​without​ ​understanding​ ​it​ ​can​ ​seem​ ​illogical.​ ​It​ ​removes​ ​the limitations​ ​of​ ​our​ ​physical​ ​body​ ​and​ ​even​ ​hides​ ​the​ ​things​ ​we​ ​speak​ ​from​ ​the​ ​enemy.​ ​It​ ​opens​ ​our​ ​spirit​ ​to discern​ ​what​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​of​ ​God​ ​desires,​ ​imparts,​ ​and​ ​reveals​ ​to​ ​us.​ ​God​ ​will​ ​reveal​ ​through​ ​prayer.
There​ ​are​ ​usually​ ​two​ ​occasions​ ​where​ ​this​ ​begins​ ​in​ ​your​ ​life,​ ​and​ ​sometimes​ ​without​ ​guidance,​ ​it​ ​can​ ​be​ ​a disappointment​ ​because​ ​we​ ​might​ ​look​ ​for​ ​something​ ​on​ ​“our​ ​terms.”​ ​For​ ​example,​ ​someone​ ​may​ ​begin praying​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​suddenly,​ ​as​ ​the​ ​followers​ ​of​ ​Jesus​ ​did​ ​in​ ​the​ ​upper​ ​room,​ ​in​ ​an​ ​atmosphere​ ​filled​ ​with​ ​the Spirit​ ​of​ ​God.​ ​One​ ​thing​ ​to​ ​note​ ​is​ ​frequently​ ​people​ ​wait​ ​and​ ​expect​ ​that​ ​it​ ​has​ ​to​ ​happen​ ​in​ ​this​ ​manner​ ​and can​ ​be​ ​left​ ​disappointed.​ ​This​ ​leaves​ ​the​ ​other​ ​example,​ ​where​ ​someone​ ​follows​ ​under​ ​the​ ​personal​ ​guidance​ ​of a​ ​seasoned​ ​minister​ ​or​ ​person​ ​knowledgeable​ ​in​ ​the​ ​area​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​and​ ​praying​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​specifically.​ ​There are​ ​things​ ​that​ ​can​ ​be​ ​exercised​ ​to​ ​step​ ​into​ ​this.

Because​ ​of​ ​the​ ​confusion​ ​and​ ​assumptions​ ​about​ ​this​ ​type​ ​of​ ​prayer​ ​there​ ​can​ ​be​ ​controversy​ ​surrounding​ ​it. Explanations​ ​of​ ​it,​ ​even​ ​writings​ ​on​ ​it​ ​can​ ​seem​ ​vague.​ ​But​ ​if​ ​you​ ​seek,​ ​you​ ​shall​ ​find!
United​ ​Prayer​ ​:
Acts​ ​4:23-30​ ​&​ ​31​ ​(KJV),​ ​“And​ ​when​ ​they​ ​had​ ​prayed,​ ​the​ ​place​ ​was​ ​shaken​ ​where​ ​they​ ​were​ ​assembled
together;​ ​and​ ​they​ ​were​ ​all​ ​filled​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Ghost,​ ​and​ ​they​ ​spake​ ​the​ ​word​ ​of​ ​God​ ​with​ ​boldness.”
There​ ​is​ ​power​ ​in​ ​God’s​ ​people​ ​being​ ​in​ ​one​ ​accord​ ​and​ ​praying​ ​together.​ ​Miracles​ ​and​ ​breakthrough​ ​happen. When​ ​you​ ​assemble​ ​together​ ​in​ ​church​ ​for​ ​example,​ ​and​ ​are​ ​worshipping​ ​together​ ​in​ ​unity​ ​and​ ​are​ ​“agreeing” that​ ​God​ ​is​ ​holy,​ ​above​ ​all​ ​things,​ ​and​ ​HE​ ​is​ ​worthy​ ​to​ ​be​ ​praised,​ ​His​ ​presence​ ​takes​ ​over.
United​ ​Prayer​ ​and​ ​Prayer​ ​in​ ​Agreement​ ​may​ ​seem​ ​like​ ​the​ ​same​ ​thing,​ ​but​ ​there​ ​is​ ​a​ ​small​ ​difference​ ​at​ ​times. Because​ ​some​ ​times​ ​in​ ​United​ ​Prayer,​ ​everyone​ ​may​ ​be​ ​in​ ​absolute​ ​verbal​ ​agreement,​ ​sometimes​ ​they​ ​may​ ​be in​ ​agreement​ ​for​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​but​ ​praying​ ​differently​ ​because​ ​of​ ​small​ ​situations.​ ​The​ ​power​ ​of​ ​two​ ​or​ ​more gathered​ ​in​ ​agreement​ ​is​ ​supernatural.​ ​But​ ​united​ ​prayer​ ​can​ ​be​ ​different​ ​in​ ​that​ ​individuals​ ​gathered​ ​together praying​ ​at​ ​the​ ​same​ ​time​ ​is​ ​not​ ​necessarily​ ​the​ ​same​ ​as​ ​all​ ​praying​ ​the​ ​same​ ​words​ ​or​ ​agreeing​ ​the​ ​same​ ​thing simultaneously.​ ​In​ ​a​ ​prayer​ ​group,​ ​20​ ​people​ ​may​ ​be​ ​praying​ ​in​ ​the​ ​same​ ​room,​ ​united​ ​as​ ​one​ ​front​ ​in​ ​battle. One​ ​individual​ ​may​ ​be​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​one​ ​aspect​ ​of​ ​a​ ​situation​ ​while​ ​another​ ​is​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​something​ ​else,​ ​a different​ ​part​ ​of​ ​a​ ​larger​ ​picture.​ ​Like​ ​a​ ​military​ ​group​ ​in​ ​battle,​ ​one​ ​may​ ​be​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​a​ ​sniper,​ ​another holding​ ​off​ ​an​ ​infantry,​ ​another​ ​fighting​ ​an​ ​air​ ​strike,​ ​but​ ​all​ ​addressing​ ​the​ ​same​ ​battle.
Through​ ​united​ ​prayer,​ ​while​ ​individuals​ ​are​ ​prophetically​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​different​ ​aspects​ ​of​ ​the​ ​same​ ​larger issue-​ ​one​ ​person​ ​might​ ​be​ ​praying​ ​for​ ​past​ ​generational​ ​issues,​ ​while​ ​another​ ​is​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​current limitations​ ​and​ ​demonic​ ​hindrances.​ ​Another​ ​may​ ​be​ ​praying​ ​to​ ​usher​ ​in​ ​the​ ​things​ ​seen.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​simply​ ​a​ ​more powerful​ ​wall​ ​of​ ​defense​ ​and​ ​a​ ​more​ ​powerful​ ​offensive​ ​tactic.​ ​Like​ ​a​ ​football​ ​team-​ ​your​ ​offensive​ ​line attacks​ ​to​ ​open​ ​up​ ​holes​ ​for​ ​a​ ​running​ ​back​ ​or​ ​hold​ ​off​ ​pass​ ​rushers,​ ​your​ ​running​ ​back​ ​may​ ​take​ ​the​ ​ball​ ​and run​ ​or​ ​pick​ ​up​ ​a​ ​block,​ ​your​ ​receivers​ ​run​ ​routes​ ​to​ ​get​ ​open​ ​or​ ​distract​ ​defenders,​ ​your​ ​quarterback​ ​reads​ ​the defense​ ​and​ ​either​ ​makes​ ​the​ ​play​ ​happen​ ​or​ ​will​ ​audible​ ​(make​ ​a​ ​change)​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​what​ ​the​ ​defense​ ​does. But​ ​11​ ​people​ ​work​ ​together​ ​in​ ​different​ ​roles​ ​to​ ​get​ ​in​ ​the​ ​end​ ​zone.​ ​Touchdown.
Intercessory​ ​Prayer:

Romans​ ​8:34​ ​(KJV),​ ​“Who​ ​is​ ​he​ ​that​ ​condemneth?​ ​It​ ​is​ ​Christ​ ​that​ ​died,​ ​yea​ ​rather,​ ​that​ ​is​ ​risen​ ​again,​ ​who​ ​is even​ ​at​ ​the​ ​right​ ​hand​ ​of​ ​God,​ ​who​ ​also​ ​maketh​ ​intercession​ ​for​ ​us.”
Hebrews​ ​7:25​ ​(NIV),​ ​“Therefore​ ​he​ ​is​ ​able​ ​to​ ​save​ ​completely[c]​ ​those​ ​who​ ​come​ ​to​ ​God​ ​through​ ​him, because​ ​he​ ​always​ ​lives​ ​to​ ​intercede​ ​for​ ​them.”
Jesus​ ​is​ ​currently​ ​interceding​ ​for​ ​us​ ​at​ ​God’s​ ​right​ ​hand.​ ​And​ ​just​ ​like​ ​that,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​to​ ​intercede​ ​for​ ​God’s people.​ ​Some​ ​intercessors​ ​do​ ​this​ ​more​ ​and​ ​focus​ ​in​ ​ministry​ ​on​ ​interceding​ ​almost​ ​as​ ​a​ ​full​ ​time​ ​position.​ ​It can​ ​be​ ​quite​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​to​ ​handle,​ ​and​ ​seldom​ ​has​ ​recognition,​ ​but​ ​a​ ​church​ ​with​ ​good​ ​intercessors​ ​is​ ​a​ ​powerful church.​ ​Some​ ​carry​ ​a​ ​gift​ ​or​ ​mantle​ ​of​ ​intercession,​ ​others​ ​may​ ​not​ ​do​ ​that​ ​specifically,​ ​but​ ​we​ ​all​ ​intercede when​ ​we​ ​pray​ ​for​ ​each​ ​other.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​very​ ​important!
I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​teaching​ ​you​ ​on​ ​the​ ​some​ ​key​ ​points​ ​to​ ​effective​ ​prayer​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​email! Praying​ ​with​ ​you,

Dear​ ​Friend,
This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​4th​ ​email​ ​in​ ​this​ ​email​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​where​ ​I​ ​will​ ​start​ ​to​ ​give​ ​you​ ​points​ ​on​ ​how​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a powerful​ ​prayer​ ​life.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​learn​ ​these​ ​points,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​have​ ​a​ ​framework​ ​to​ ​use​ ​to​ ​pray​ ​POWERFULLY​ ​in​ ​a Biblical​ ​way​ ​about​ ​anything​ ​at​ ​anytime.
2​ ​Chronicles​ ​7:12-15​ ​says,​ ​“And​ ​the​ ​LORD​ ​appeared​ ​to​ ​Solomon​ ​by​ ​night,​ ​and​ ​said​ ​unto​ ​him,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​heard​ ​thy prayer,​ ​and​ ​have​ ​chosen​ ​this​ ​place​ ​to​ ​myself​ ​for​ ​an​ ​house​ ​of​ ​sacrifice.​ ​If​ ​I​ ​shut​ ​up​ ​heaven​ ​that​ ​there​ ​be​ ​no​ ​rain, or​ ​if​ ​I​ ​command​ ​the​ ​locusts​ ​to​ ​devour​ ​the​ ​land,​ ​or​ ​if​ ​I​ ​send​ ​pestilence​ ​among​ ​my​ ​people;​ ​14If​ ​my​ ​people, which​ ​are​ ​called​ ​by​ ​my​ ​name,​ ​shall​ ​humble​ ​themselves,​ ​and​ ​pray,​ ​and​ ​seek​ ​my​ ​face,​ ​and​ ​turn​ ​from​ ​their wicked​ ​ways;​ ​then​ ​will​ ​I​ ​hear​ ​from​ ​heaven,​ ​and​ ​will​ ​forgive​ ​their​ ​sin,​ ​and​ ​will​ ​heal​ ​their​ ​land.​ ​15Now​ ​mine eyes​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​open,​ ​and​ ​mine​ ​ears​ ​attent​ ​unto​ ​the​ ​prayer​ ​that​ ​is​ ​made​ ​in​ ​this​ ​place.”
Some​ ​significant​ ​points​ ​to​ ​understand:
1. God​ ​hears​ ​our​ ​prayer
2. God​ ​chooses​ ​the​ ​house​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Lord​ ​to​ ​commit​ ​Himself​ ​to.
3. He​ ​will​ ​reverse​ ​His​ ​own​ ​doing​ ​if​ ​we​ ​pray.
4. If​ ​we​ ​repent​ ​He​ ​will​ ​heal​ ​the​ ​land.
5. If​ ​we​ ​humble​ ​ourselves​ ​He​ ​will​ ​heal​ ​our​ ​land.
6. If​ ​we​ ​seek​ ​His​ ​face,​ ​HE​ ​will​ ​heal​ ​our​ ​land​ ​and​ ​forgive​ ​our​ ​sins.
7. God​ ​is​ ​attentive​ ​and​ ​opens​ ​His​ ​ears​ ​to​ ​prayers​ ​that​ ​come​ ​from​ ​His​ ​House​ ​of​ ​Sacrifice.
2​ ​Chronicles​ ​7:14​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“If​ ​my​ ​people,​ ​which​ ​are​ ​called​ ​by​ ​my​ ​name,​ ​shall​ ​humble​ ​themselves,​ ​and pray,​ ​and​ ​seek​ ​my​ ​face,​ ​and​ ​turn​ ​from​ ​their​ ​wicked​ ​ways;​ ​then​ ​will​ ​I​ ​hear​ ​from​ ​heaven,​ ​and​ ​will​ ​forgive​ ​their sin,​ ​and​ ​will​ ​heal​ ​their​ ​land.”
There​ ​are​ ​a​ ​few​ ​things​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​in​ ​mind​ ​as​ ​we​ ​build​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​prayer​ ​life: 1)​ ​Pray​ ​to​ ​The​ ​Father​ ​in​ ​the​ ​name​ ​of​ ​Jesus​ ​Christ.
John​ ​16:23-24​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“And​ ​in​ ​that​ ​day​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​ask​ ​me​ ​nothing.​ ​Verily,​ ​verily,​ ​I​ ​say​ ​unto​ ​you, Whatsoever​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​ask​ ​the​ ​Father​ ​in​ ​my​ ​name,​ ​he​ ​will​ ​give​ ​it​ ​you.​ ​24)​ ​Hitherto​ ​have​ ​ye​ ​asked​ ​nothing​ ​in​ ​my name:​ ​ask,​ ​and​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​receive,​ ​that​ ​your​ ​joy​ ​may​ ​be​ ​full.”

2)​ ​Pray​ ​the​ ​Word​ ​of​ ​God.
Isaiah​ ​55:11​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“So​ ​shall​ ​my​ ​word​ ​be​ ​that​ ​goeth​ ​forth​ ​out​ ​of​ ​my​ ​mouth:​ ​it​ ​shall​ ​not​ ​return​ ​unto​ ​me
void,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​shall​ ​accomplish​ ​that​ ​which​ ​I​ ​please,​ ​and​ ​it​ ​shall​ ​prosper​ ​in​ ​the​ ​thing​ ​whereto​ ​I​ ​sent​ ​it.”
A​ ​believers​ ​prayer​ ​life​ ​must​ ​be​ ​built​ ​and​ ​based​ ​on​ ​His​ ​word.​ ​We​ ​know​ ​that​ ​faith​ ​begins​ ​where​ ​the​ ​will​ ​of​ ​God is​ ​known​ ​and​ ​we​ ​know​ ​that​ ​God’s​ ​word​ ​is​ ​His​ ​will.​ ​Find​ ​scriptures​ ​that​ ​definitely​ ​promise​ ​what​ ​you​ ​are​ ​asking God​ ​for.​ ​Get​ ​those​ ​scriptures​ ​firmly​ ​fixed​ ​in​ ​your​ ​heart,​ ​not​ ​just​ ​your​ ​mind.​ ​To​ ​do​ ​that​ ​you​ ​will​ ​have​ ​to meditate​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Word​ ​of​ ​God.
Josh​ ​1:8​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“This​ ​book​ ​of​ ​the​ ​law​ ​shall​ ​not​ ​depart​ ​out​ ​of​ ​thy​ ​mouth;​ ​but​ ​thou​ ​shalt​ ​meditate​ ​therein day​ ​and​ ​night,​ ​that​ ​thou​ ​mayest​ ​observe​ ​to​ ​do​ ​according​ ​to​ ​all​ ​that​ ​is​ ​written​ ​therein:​ ​for​ ​then​ ​thou​ ​shalt​ ​make thy​ ​way​ ​prosperous,​ ​and​ ​then​ ​thou​ ​shalt​ ​have​ ​good​ ​success.”
Another​ ​translation​ ​says​ ​“…that​ ​thou​ ​mayest​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​deal​ ​wisely​ ​in​ ​the​ ​affairs​ ​of​ ​life.”
Success​ ​in​ ​life​ ​comes​ ​by​ ​meditating​ ​on​ ​God’s​ ​Word.​ ​That’s​ ​the​ ​way​ ​you’ll​ ​build​ ​God’s​ ​Word​ ​into​ ​your​ ​inner
consciousness,​ ​into​ ​your​ ​spirit.
3)​ ​You​ ​must​ ​ask​ ​God​ ​for​ ​what​ ​you​ ​want​ ​and​ ​believe​ ​you​ ​receive​ ​when
you​ ​pray.
Mark​ ​11:24​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Therefore​ ​I​ ​say​ ​unto​ ​you,​ ​What​ ​things​ ​soever​ ​ye​ ​desire,​ ​when​ ​ye​ ​pray,​ ​believe​ ​that​ ​ye
receive​ ​them,​ ​and​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​have​ ​them.”
Matthew​ ​7:7-8​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Ask,​ ​and​ ​it​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​given​ ​you;​ ​seek,​ ​and​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​find;​ ​knock,​ ​and​ ​it​ ​shall​ ​be opened​ ​unto​ ​you:​ ​8)​ ​For​ ​every​ ​one​ ​that​ ​asketh​ ​receiveth;​ ​and​ ​he​ ​that​ ​seeketh​ ​findeth;​ ​and​ ​to​ ​him​ ​that​ ​knocketh it​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​opened.”
Certainly​ ​the​ ​Lord​ ​knows​ ​what​ ​we​ ​need​ ​even​ ​before​ ​we​ ​ask,​ ​but​ ​He​ ​still​ ​said​ ​for​ ​us​ ​to​ ​ask​ ​Him.​ ​The​ ​Bible​ ​says “…​ ​your​ ​heavenly​ ​Father​ ​knoweth​ ​that​ ​you​ ​have​ ​need​ ​of​ ​all​ ​these​ ​things”​ ​(Matt.​ ​6:32).​ ​But​ ​He​ ​also​ ​tells​ ​you​ ​to ASK​ ​for​ ​what​ ​you​ ​need:​ ​“…ask,​ ​and​ ​ye​ ​shall​ ​receive,​ ​that​ ​your​ ​joy​ ​may​ ​be​ ​full”​ ​(John​ ​16:24).
To​ ​say​ ​that​ ​you​ ​are​ ​leaving​ ​it​ ​up​ ​to​ ​God​ ​&​ ​that​ ​you​ ​know​ ​he​ ​will​ ​automatically​ ​do​ ​what​ ​is​ ​best​ ​for​ ​you​ ​is unscriptural.

4)​ ​Forgive​ ​if​ ​you​ ​have​ ​ought​ ​against​ ​any.
Mark​ ​11:25-26​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“And​ ​when​ ​ye​ ​stand​ ​praying,​ ​forgive,​ ​if​ ​ye​ ​have​ ​ought​ ​against​ ​any:​ ​that​ ​your Father​ ​also​ ​which​ ​is​ ​in​ ​heaven​ ​may​ ​forgive​ ​you​ ​your​ ​trespasses.​ ​26)​ ​But​ ​if​ ​ye​ ​do​ ​not​ ​forgive,​ ​neither​ ​will​ ​your Father​ ​which​ ​is​ ​in​ ​heaven​ ​forgive​ ​your​ ​trespasses.”
I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​teaching​ ​you​ ​the​ ​next​ ​2​ ​points​ ​on​ ​building​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​prayer​ ​life,​ ​”engaging​ ​the​ ​enemy”​ ​and “spiritual​ ​warfare”​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​email!
Praying​ ​with​ ​you,
Dear​ ​~Contact.FirstName~,
In​ ​this​ ​5th​ ​email​ ​on​ ​this​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​on​ ​prayer,​ ​I​ ​am​ ​picking​ ​up​ ​where​ ​we​ ​left​ ​off​ ​on​ ​the​ ​next​ ​2​ ​points​ ​on
building​ ​a​ ​powerful​ ​prayer​ ​life,​ ​”engaging​ ​the​ ​enemy”​ ​and​ ​”spiritual​ ​warfare”. 5)​ ​Engaging​ ​the​ ​enemy.
Nehemiah​ ​2:17-20​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Then​ ​said​ ​I​ ​unto​ ​them,​ ​Ye​ ​see​ ​the​ ​distress​ ​that​ ​we​ ​are​ ​in,​ ​how​ ​Jerusalem​ ​lieth waste,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​gates​ ​thereof​ ​are​ ​burned​ ​with​ ​fire:​ ​come,​ ​and​ ​let​ ​us​ ​build​ ​up​ ​the​ ​wall​ ​of​ ​Jerusalem,​ ​that​ ​we​ ​be​ ​no more​ ​a​ ​reproach.​ ​18)​ ​Then​ ​I​ ​told​ ​them​ ​of​ ​the​ ​hand​ ​of​ ​my​ ​God​ ​which​ ​was​ ​good​ ​upon​ ​me;​ ​as​ ​also​ ​the​ ​king’s words​ ​that​ ​he​ ​had​ ​spoken​ ​unto​ ​me.​ ​And​ ​they​ ​said,​ ​Let​ ​us​ ​rise​ ​up​ ​and​ ​build.​ ​So​ ​they​ ​strengthened​ ​their​ ​hands for​ ​this​ ​good​ ​work.​ ​19)​ ​But​ ​when​ ​Sanballat​ ​the​ ​Horonite,​ ​and​ ​Tobiah​ ​the​ ​servant,​ ​the​ ​Ammonite,​ ​and​ ​Geshem the​ ​Arabian,​ ​heard​ ​it,​ ​they​ ​laughed​ ​us​ ​to​ ​scorn,​ ​and​ ​despised​ ​us,​ ​and​ ​said,​ ​What​ ​is​ ​this​ ​thing​ ​that​ ​ye​ ​do?​ ​will​ ​ye rebel​ ​against​ ​the​ ​king?​ ​20)​ ​Then​ ​answered​ ​I​ ​them,​ ​and​ ​said​ ​unto​ ​them,​ ​The​ ​God​ ​of​ ​heaven,​ ​he​ ​will​ ​prosper​ ​us; therefore​ ​we​ ​his​ ​servants​ ​will​ ​arise​ ​and​ ​build:​ ​but​ ​ye​ ​have​ ​no​ ​portion,​ ​nor​ ​right,​ ​nor​ ​memorial,​ ​in​ ​Jerusalem.” Nehemiah​ ​says,​ ​“Let​ ​us​ ​build​ ​up​ ​the​ ​wall!”
1​ ​Corinthians​ ​3:9​ ​(AMP)​ ​“For​ ​we​ ​are​ ​fellow​ ​workmen​ ​(joint​ ​promoters,​ ​laborers​ ​together)​ ​with​ ​and​ ​for​ ​God; you​ ​are​ ​God’s​ ​garden​ ​and​ ​vineyard​ ​and​ ​field​ ​under​ ​cultivation,​ ​[you​ ​are]​ ​God’s​ ​building.”​ ​You​ ​are​ ​in partnership​ ​with​ ​God,​ ​co-laborers​ ​with​ ​Christ.​ ​Nehemiah​ ​says​ ​where​ ​they​ ​are​ ​and​ ​where​ ​they​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be,​ ​and declares,​ ​“we​ ​can​ ​do​ ​this​ ​because​ ​the​ ​hand​ ​of​ ​God​ ​is​ ​good​ ​upon​ ​me.”

Psalm​ ​5:12​ ​(NIV)​ ​says,​ ​“For​ ​surely,​ ​O​ ​Lord,​ ​you​ ​bless​ ​the​ ​righteous;​ ​you​ ​surround​ ​them​ ​with​ ​your​ ​favor​ ​as with​ ​a​ ​shield.”
Romans​ ​8:31​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“If​ ​God​ ​be​ ​for​ ​us,​ ​who​ ​can​ ​be​ ​against​ ​us?”
The​ ​people​ ​responded​ ​with​ ​a​ ​clarion​ ​call:​ ​“Let​ ​us​ ​rise​ ​up​ ​and​ ​build”​ ​(heb​ ​=​ ​begin​ ​to​ ​build,​ ​obtain​ ​children, make​ ​repair,​ ​set​ ​up,​ ​sure).​ ​There​ ​was​ ​no​ ​restoration​ ​until​ ​the​ ​people​ ​responded​ ​to​ ​agree​ ​and​ ​align​ ​with Nehemiah.​ ​So,​ ​they​ ​“strengthened”​ ​their​ ​hands​ ​for​ ​this​ ​good​ ​work.​ ​“Strengthened”​ ​(Hebrew:​ ​“bind​ ​together​ ​in covenant”).​ ​“HANDS”​ ​(Hebrew:​ ​“the​ ​open​ ​one”​ ​–​ ​indicating​ ​power,​ ​means​ ​&​ ​direction).​ ​In​ ​other​ ​words:​ ​The people​ ​came​ ​together​ ​in​ ​covenant​ ​for​ ​the​ ​cause​ ​with​ ​their​ ​power​ ​(influence​ ​/​ ​favor),​ ​means,​ ​resources,​ ​talents, and​ ​direction.
This​ ​is​ ​what​ ​gets​ ​the​ ​enemy​ ​stirred​ ​up.​ ​When​ ​the​ ​people​ ​of​ ​God​ ​came​ ​together​ ​and​ ​assembled​ ​–​ ​it​ ​aggravated and​ ​activated​ ​the​ ​enemy!​ ​2​ ​Corinthians​ ​2:11​ ​says,​ ​“Lest​ ​Satan​ ​should​ ​get​ ​an​ ​advantage​ ​of​ ​us:​ ​for​ ​we​ ​are​ ​not ignorant​ ​of​ ​his​ ​devices”​ ​(greek:​ ​purposes,​ ​disposition,​ ​thoughts).
You​ ​will​ ​never​ ​defeat​ ​an​ ​enemy​ ​you​ ​are​ ​not​ ​aware​ ​of!​ ​The​ ​Bible​ ​makes​ ​it​ ​clear​ ​that​ ​a​ ​battle​ ​line​ ​has​ ​been drawn​ ​between​ ​2​ ​kingdoms​ ​or​ ​2​ ​realms​ ​of​ ​authority:​ ​one​ ​being​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​of​ ​God,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​of light​ ​and​ ​righteousness,​ ​the​ ​other​ ​being​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​of​ ​the​ ​devil,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​of​ ​darkness​ ​and wickedness.
The​ ​human​ ​race​ ​is​ ​the​ ​subject​ ​of​ ​this​ ​great​ ​conflict,​ ​with​ ​each​ ​power​ ​seeking​ ​to​ ​possess​ ​the​ ​control​ ​over​ ​the human​ ​race.​ ​The​ ​battle​ ​is​ ​more​ ​spiritual​ ​than​ ​physical​ ​but​ ​its​ ​impact​ ​is​ ​felt​ ​on​ ​every​ ​activity​ ​of​ ​the​ ​human​ ​race and​ ​personal​ ​issues​ ​in​ ​our​ ​lives.
Ephesians​ ​6:10-12​ ​(KJV),​ ​“Finally,​ ​my​ ​brethren,​ ​be​ ​strong​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Lord,​ ​and​ ​in​ ​the​ ​power​ ​of​ ​his​ ​might.​ ​11)​ ​Put on​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​armour​ ​of​ ​God,​ ​that​ ​ye​ ​may​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​stand​ ​against​ ​the​ ​wiles​ ​of​ ​the​ ​devil.​ ​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.”
*Quick​ ​note:​ ​10​ ​cures​ ​to​ ​Anxiety:
1. Permit​ ​the​ ​peace​ ​of​ ​God​ ​to​ ​garrison​ ​or​ ​keep​ ​your​ ​heart​ ​and​ ​mind​ ​through​ ​Christ​ ​Jesus​ ​(Phi​ ​4:7)
2. Renounce​ ​all​ ​worry​ ​by​ ​prayer​ ​&​ ​supplications​ ​with​ ​thanksgiving​ ​make​ ​all​ ​your​ ​requests​ ​known​ ​to
God​ ​(Phil​ ​4:6,​ ​7).
©​ ​Paula​ ​White​ ​Ministries​ ​2017 13

Submit​ ​yourself​ ​to​ ​God,​ ​resist​ ​the​ ​devil​ ​and​ ​he​ ​will​ ​flee​ ​from​ ​you​ ​(James​ ​4:7).
1. Think​ ​on​ ​right​ ​things​ ​(Phil​ ​4:8)
2. Keep​ ​your​ ​mind​ ​stayed​ ​on​ ​God​ ​(IS​ ​26:3)
3. Use​ ​weapons​ ​of​ ​spiritual​ ​warfare​ ​(2​ ​Cor​ ​4:6)
4. Put​ ​on​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​armor​ ​of​ ​God​ ​(​ ​Eph​ ​6:10-18)
5. Have​ ​faith​ ​in​ ​God​ ​(MT​ ​6:25-34,​ ​7:7-11,​ ​17:20,​ ​MK​ ​11:22-24)
6. Live​ ​&​ ​walk​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​(Gal​ ​5:16-26,​ ​Rom​ ​6:14-23)
7. Do​ ​not​ ​cast​ ​away​ ​confidence​ ​(Heb​ ​3:6,​ ​12-14;​ ​6:11-12;​ ​10:19-23)
8. Cast​ ​all​ ​your​ ​care​ ​upon​ ​God​ ​(​ ​1​ ​Peter​ ​5:7)
Now​ ​concerning​ ​“spiritual​ ​warfare,”​ ​there​ ​are​ ​7​ ​principles​ ​you​ ​MUST​ ​know:
1. There​ ​is​ ​an​ ​enemy
2. The​ ​enemy​ ​is​ ​spiritual
3. The​ ​enemy​ ​operates​ ​from​ ​the​ ​spiritual​ ​realm
4. The​ ​first​ ​deception​ ​of​ ​the​ ​enemy​ ​is​ ​to​ ​make​ ​you​ ​think​ ​there​ ​is​ ​no​ ​enemy
5. The​ ​warfare​ ​we​ ​find​ ​ourselves​ ​involved​ ​in​ ​is​ ​dangerously​ ​aggressive
6. This​ ​warfare​ ​is​ ​a​ ​very​ ​determined,​ ​very​ ​experienced​ ​&​ ​well​ ​organized​ ​enemy
7. You​ ​are​ ​a​ ​target​ ​of​ ​this​ ​well​ ​organized​ ​enemy
As​ ​a​ ​believer,​ ​you​ ​belong​ ​to​ ​the​ ​winning​ ​side​ ​of​ ​this​ ​conflict​ ​and​ ​war.​ ​But​ ​you​ ​must​ ​know​ ​how​ ​to​ ​legally engage!​ ​The​ ​exciting​ ​news​ ​is​ ​that​ ​our​ ​Lord​ ​Jesus​ ​Christ​ ​overcame​ ​the​ ​enemy​ ​and​ ​has​ ​given​ ​us​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​and right​ ​to​ ​overcome​ ​him​ ​as​ ​well.
Colossians​ ​2:14-15​ ​(NIV)​ ​says,​ ​“having​ ​canceled​ ​the​ ​written​ ​code,​ ​with​ ​its​ ​regulations,​ ​that​ ​was​ ​against​ ​us​ ​and that​ ​stood​ ​opposed​ ​to​ ​us;​ ​he​ ​took​ ​it​ ​away,​ ​nailing​ ​it​ ​to​ ​the​ ​cross.​ ​15)​ ​And​ ​having​ ​disarmed​ ​the​ ​powers​ ​and authorities,​ ​he​ ​made​ ​a​ ​public​ ​spectacle​ ​of​ ​them,​ ​triumphing​ ​over​ ​them​ ​by​ ​the​ ​cross.”
Both​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​of​ ​God​ ​and​ ​that​ ​of​ ​Satan’s​ ​operate​ ​in​ ​hierarchical​ ​order.​ ​There​ ​are​ ​grades​ ​or​ ​levels​ ​of authority.
The​ ​is​ ​a​ ​hierarchy​ ​that​ ​is​ ​mentioned​ ​in​ ​Colossians​ ​1:16,17​ ​(KJV),​ ​“For​ ​by​ ​him​ ​were​ ​all​ ​things​ ​created,​ ​that​ ​are in​ ​heaven,​ ​and​ ​that​ ​are​ ​in​ ​earth,​ ​visible​ ​and​ ​invisible,​ ​whether​ ​they​ ​be​ ​thrones,​ ​or​ ​dominions,​ ​or​ ​principalities,

or​ ​powers:​ ​all​ ​things​ ​were​ ​created​ ​by​ ​him,​ ​and​ ​for​ ​him:​ ​17)​ ​And​ ​he​ ​is​ ​before​ ​all​ ​things,​ ​and​ ​by​ ​him​ ​all​ ​things consist.”
This​ ​is​ ​different​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Satanic​ ​hierarchy​ ​in​ ​Ephesians​ ​6:12​ ​(KJV),​ ​“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.”
Notice:​ ​“Rulers​ ​of​ ​darkness​ ​of​ ​this​ ​age​ ​and​ ​spiritual​ ​hosts​ ​of​ ​wickedness​ ​in​ ​heavenly​ ​places”​ ​is​ ​NOT mentioned​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Colossians​ ​account.​ ​God​ ​has​ ​angelic​ ​thrones​ ​with​ ​accompanying​ ​delegated​ ​authority​ ​in various​ ​capacities,​ ​according​ ​to​ ​their​ ​assigned​ ​duties.​ ​Satan​ ​has​ ​sought​ ​to​ ​duplicate​ ​this​ ​divine​ ​order​ ​with​ ​a rival​ ​set-up​ ​to​ ​carry​ ​out​ ​his​ ​evil​ ​plans.​ ​God​ ​has​ ​“Chief​ ​angels”​ ​appointed​ ​to​ ​oversee​ ​nations.​ ​For​ ​example, Michael​ ​the​ ​archangel​ ​is​ ​a​ ​Chief​ ​Prince​ ​(Daniel​ ​10:13​ ​&​ ​21).
It’s​ ​imperative​ ​to​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​principles​ ​that​ ​govern​ ​binding​ ​and​ ​loosing.​ ​Matthew​ ​16:19​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“And I​ ​will​ ​give​ ​unto​ ​thee​ ​the​ ​keys​ ​of​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​of​ ​heaven:​ ​and​ ​whatsoever​ ​thou​ ​shalt​ ​bind​ ​on​ ​earth​ ​shall​ ​be bound​ ​in​ ​heaven:​ ​and​ ​whatsoever​ ​thou​ ​shalt​ ​loose​ ​on​ ​earth​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​loosed​ ​in​ ​heaven.”
Whatever​ ​you​ ​bind​ ​or​ ​loose​ ​on​ ​earth,​ ​the​ ​angels​ ​of​ ​God​ ​are​ ​mandated​ ​to​ ​enforce​ ​your​ ​command​ ​in​ ​the​ ​heavens. Psalm​ ​103:20​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Bless​ ​the​ ​Lord,​ ​ye​ ​his​ ​angels,​ ​that​ ​excel​ ​in​ ​strength,​ ​that​ ​do​ ​his​ ​commandments, hearkening​ ​unto​ ​the​ ​voice​ ​of​ ​his​ ​word.”
Do​ ​you​ ​realize​ ​that​ ​angels​ ​do​ ​God’s​ ​Word​ ​and​ ​heed​ ​the​ ​voice​ ​of​ ​His​ ​Word?​ ​The​ ​“voice​ ​of​ ​His​ ​Word”​ ​refers​ ​to taking​ ​God’s​ ​Word​ ​and​ ​vocalizing​ ​it.
The​ ​keys​ ​to​ ​the​ ​kingdom​ ​related​ ​to​ ​binding​ ​and​ ​loosing​ ​are​ ​the​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​all​ ​the​ ​“devices”​ ​of​ ​the​ ​devil. You​ ​cannot​ ​gain​ ​access​ ​to​ ​a​ ​room​ ​without​ ​a​ ​key,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​cannot​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​bind​ ​and​ ​loose​ ​without​ ​knowledge. Ignorance​ ​in​ ​any​ ​area​ ​of​ ​your​ ​life​ ​gives​ ​the​ ​enemy​ ​the​ ​advantage.
I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​teaching​ ​you​ ​on​ ​principalities​ ​and​ ​powers​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​email! Praying​ ​with​ ​you,

Dear​ ​~Contact.FirstName~,
This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​6th​ ​email​ ​in​ ​this​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​on​ ​prayer.​ ​Let’s​ ​gain​ ​insight​ ​about​ ​the​ ​structures​ ​and​ ​set​ ​up​ ​of
Satan’s​ ​kingdom​ ​(Ephesians​ ​6:12):
PRINCIPALITIES:
The​ ​greek​ ​“Archias”,​ ​these​ ​are​ ​princes​ ​of​ ​the​ ​underworld​ ​who​ ​manipulate​ ​certain​ ​sections​ ​of​ ​the​ ​universe. Principalities​ ​are​ ​ruling​ ​assigned​ ​over​ ​nations​ ​and​ ​cities.​ ​They​ ​exert​ ​their​ ​influence​ ​over​ ​heads​ ​of​ ​nations, Kings.​ ​They​ ​seek​ ​to​ ​control​ ​the​ ​political​ ​lives​ ​of​ ​these​ ​nations,​ ​using​ ​human​ ​heads​ ​as​ ​their​ ​main​ ​instrument​ ​of operation.
Their​ ​function​ ​is​ ​to:
1. Detail​ ​and​ ​direct​ ​plans​ ​for​ ​countries​ ​and​ ​cities.
2. Influence​ ​men​ ​and​ ​women​ ​in​ ​government​ ​and​ ​positions​ ​of​ ​decision​ ​making​ ​in​ ​Nations​ ​(2​ ​Timothy​ ​2:2,
Daniel​ ​10).
3. Directly​ ​carry​ ​out​ ​the​ ​evil​ ​purposes​ ​of​ ​Satan.
POWERS:
This​ ​is​ ​the​ ​2nd​ ​level​ ​of​ ​authority​ ​in​ ​Satan’s​ ​kingdom.​ ​They​ ​exert​ ​their​ ​authority​ ​over​ ​the​ ​decision​ ​making bodies​ ​of​ ​a​ ​nation,​ ​influencing​ ​the​ ​structures​ ​of​ ​all​ ​the​ ​governing​ ​authorities​ ​and​ ​promoting​ ​wickedness​ ​and injustice​ ​by​ ​controlling​ ​those​ ​in​ ​places​ ​of​ ​authority​ ​in​ ​the​ ​land.​ ​Powers​ ​can​ ​also​ ​influence​ ​the​ ​thoughts​ ​and feelings​ ​of​ ​human​ ​beings.
They​ ​can​ ​influence​ ​people​ ​to​ ​“kill,​ ​steal,​ ​and​ ​indulge​ ​in​ ​all​ ​manner​ ​of​ ​destructive​ ​deeds.”​ ​They​ ​can​ ​influence Christians​ ​to​ ​slander,​ ​gossip,​ ​bear​ ​grudges,​ ​backbite,​ ​etc.​ ​It​ ​causes​ ​people​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​lackadaisical,​ ​careless​ ​or lazy​ ​attitude​ ​towards​ ​the​ ​work​ ​of​ ​God​ ​and​ ​more.​ ​Powers​ ​make​ ​believers​ ​believe​ ​a​ ​lie​ ​and​ ​get​ ​into​ ​a​ ​state​ ​of offense.
They​ ​have​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​to:
1. Influence​ ​the​ ​thoughts​ ​and​ ​feelings​ ​of​ ​human​ ​beings.
2. Influence​ ​Christians​ ​for​ ​destructive​ ​behavior.
3. Influence​ ​&​ ​operate​ ​through​ ​the​ ​media​ ​(airwaves).

RULERS​ ​OF​ ​DARKNESS:
The​ ​Greek,​ ​“Kosmokratoras,”​ ​means​ ​World​ ​Rulers.​ ​These​ ​powers​ ​are​ ​mandated​ ​by​ ​the​ ​devil​ ​to​ ​promote​ ​false religions​ ​and​ ​the​ ​occult​ ​practices,​ ​thereby​ ​enslaving​ ​the​ ​souls​ ​of​ ​men​ ​in​ ​deception.​ ​The​ ​main​ ​aim​ ​of​ ​these rulers​ ​of​ ​darkness​ ​is​ ​to​ ​control.​ ​They​ ​operate​ ​by​ ​deception​ ​and​ ​place​ ​in​ ​their​ ​minds​ ​false​ ​teachings,​ ​false visions,​ ​dreams,​ ​etc.
SPIRITUAL​ ​HOSTS​ ​OF​ ​WICKEDNESS:
After​ ​powers,​ ​come​ ​the​ ​spiritual​ ​hosts​ ​of​ ​wickedness​ ​in​ ​heavenly​ ​realms.​ ​They​ ​promote​ ​lawlessness​ ​and wickedness​ ​in​ ​the​ ​land​ ​to​ ​ensnare​ ​souls​ ​of​ ​men​ ​in​ ​all​ ​manner​ ​of​ ​abominable​ ​sins.​ ​The​ ​key​ ​to​ ​their​ ​operations resides​ ​in​ ​the​ ​word​ ​“wickedness.”
Spiritual​ ​wickedness​ ​is​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​such​ ​things​ ​as​ ​accidents,​ ​premature​ ​death,​ ​suicides,​ ​delayed​ ​blessings, unseen​ ​obstacles,​ ​hindrances​ ​to​ ​progress​ ​and​ ​advancements,​ ​and​ ​so​ ​on…
They​ ​are:
1. Very​ ​injurious​ ​and​ ​destructive​ ​in​ ​nature.
2. May​ ​appear​ ​as​ ​angels​ ​of​ ​light​ ​and​ ​by​ ​their​ ​deception​ ​draw​ ​many​ ​away.
3. Sometimes​ ​try​ ​to​ ​influence​ ​and​ ​interfere​ ​with​ ​messages​ ​from​ ​the​ ​pulpit.​ ​They​ ​cause​ ​Christians​ ​to
“sleep”​ ​and​ ​be​ ​distracted.
4. They​ ​convince​ ​the​ ​unsaved​ ​that​ ​all​ ​is​ ​well.
Great​ ​athletes​ ​study​ ​their​ ​opponents​ ​to​ ​win​ ​championships.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​in​ ​a​ ​fight,​ ​the​ ​fact​ ​that​ ​you​ ​are​ ​in​ ​a​ ​fight means​ ​something​ ​great​ ​is​ ​about​ ​to​ ​come​ ​forth​ ​in​ ​your​ ​life.​ ​When​ ​purpose​ ​begins​ ​to​ ​manifest​ ​in​ ​your​ ​life,​ ​the enemy​ ​gets​ ​intimidated​ ​because​ ​you​ ​are​ ​now​ ​a​ ​“threat.”
Spiritual​ ​assassins​ ​don’t​ ​look​ ​for​ ​unimportant​ ​people,​ ​they​ ​shoot​ ​the​ ​President,​ ​not​ ​the​ ​bodyguard.​ ​In​ ​sports, you​ ​tackle​ ​the​ ​guy​ ​with​ ​the​ ​football,​ ​not​ ​the​ ​one​ ​on​ ​the​ ​bench.
1​ ​Peter​ ​4:12-13​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Beloved,​ ​think​ ​it​ ​not​ ​strange​ ​concerning​ ​the​ ​fiery​ ​trial​ ​which​ ​is​ ​to​ ​try​ ​you,​ ​as though​ ​some​ ​strange​ ​thing​ ​happened​ ​unto​ ​you:​ ​13)​ ​But​ ​rejoice,​ ​inasmuch​ ​as​ ​ye​ ​are​ ​partakers​ ​of​ ​Christ’s sufferings;​ ​that,​ ​when​ ​his​ ​glory​ ​shall​ ​be​ ​revealed,​ ​ye​ ​may​ ​be​ ​glad​ ​also​ ​with​ ​exceeding​ ​joy.”​ ​However,​ ​without

understanding​ ​the​ ​dynamics​ ​of​ ​Christian​ ​warfare,​ ​your​ ​fight​ ​will​ ​be​ ​futile,​ ​you​ ​will​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​an​ ​“illegal​ ​battle” ignorantly​ ​or​ ​bring​ ​on​ ​an​ ​unnecessary​ ​battle.
There​ ​is​ ​a​ ​code​ ​of​ ​conduct​ ​“Jus​ ​in​ ​bello”,​ ​that​ ​is​ ​acceptable​ ​warfare,​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​“The​ ​Laws​ ​of​ ​War”​ ​or​ ​“Jus​ ​ad bellum.”
Satan​ ​is​ ​not​ ​God’s​ ​adversary,​ ​he​ ​is​ ​yours.​ ​Ephesians​ ​1:19-22​ ​(NIV),​ ​“that​ ​you​ ​may​ ​know…19)​ ​and​ ​his incomparably​ ​great​ ​power​ ​for​ ​us​ ​who​ ​believe.​ ​That​ ​power​ ​is​ ​like​ ​the​ ​working​ ​of​ ​his​ ​mighty​ ​strength,​ ​20)​ ​which he​ ​exerted​ ​in​ ​Christ​ ​when​ ​he​ ​raised​ ​him​ ​from​ ​the​ ​dead​ ​and​ ​seated​ ​him​ ​at​ ​his​ ​right​ ​hand​ ​in​ ​the​ ​heavenly​ ​realms, 21)​ ​far​ ​above​ ​all​ ​rule​ ​and​ ​authority,​ ​power​ ​and​ ​dominion,​ ​and​ ​every​ ​title​ ​that​ ​can​ ​be​ ​given,​ ​not​ ​only​ ​in​ ​the present​ ​age​ ​but​ ​also​ ​in​ ​the​ ​one​ ​to​ ​come.​ ​22)​ ​And​ ​God​ ​placed​ ​all​ ​things​ ​under​ ​his​ ​feet​ ​and​ ​appointed​ ​him​ ​to​ ​be head​ ​over​ ​everything​ ​for​ ​the​ ​church,”
The​ ​war​ ​of​ ​ages​ ​was​ ​fought​ ​and​ ​won​ ​over​ ​2000​ ​yrs​ ​ago,​ ​therefore,​ ​we​ ​must​ ​acknowledge​ ​and​ ​appropriate​ ​the bounty​ ​(or​ ​blessing)​ ​to​ ​His​ ​victory.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​not​ ​fighting​ ​to​ ​beat​ ​the​ ​devil.​ ​The​ ​“good​ ​fight​ ​of​ ​faith​ ​is​ ​to​ ​believe, receive,​ ​and​ ​appropriate​ ​Calvary’s​ ​spoils.”​ ​Therefore,​ ​let’s​ ​examine​ ​educate​ ​ourselves​ ​on​ ​the​ ​patterns​ ​& principles​ ​to​ ​the​ ​enemies​ ​of​ ​NEH​ ​&​ ​Gods​ ​people
I​ ​will​ ​continue​ ​teaching​ ​you​ ​on​ ​the​ ​strongman​ ​and​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​The​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​in​ ​the​ ​next​ ​email! Praying​ ​with​ ​you,

Dear​ ​Friend,
In​ ​my​ ​last​ ​email,​ ​we​ ​went​ ​over​ ​the​ ​structures​ ​and​ ​set​ ​up​ ​of​ ​Satan’s​ ​kingdom​ ​(Ephesians​ ​6:12).​ ​In​ ​this​ ​7th​ ​and
final​ ​email​ ​on​ ​this​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​on​ ​prayer,​ ​I​ ​am​ ​sharing​ ​some​ ​scripture​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​and​ ​the​ ​strongman.
DEPEND​ ​ON​ ​THE​ ​HOLY​ ​SPIRIT’S​ ​HELP​ ​IN​ ​PRAYER
The​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​entered​ ​you​ ​when​ ​you​ ​gave​ ​your​ ​life​ ​to​ ​Jesus​ ​Christ​ ​and​ ​decided​ ​to​ ​live​ ​for​ ​God.​ ​We​ ​have​ ​to seek​ ​guidance,​ ​ask​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​to​ ​lead​ ​us,​ ​to​ ​help​ ​us​ ​do​ ​the​ ​things​ ​God​ ​wants​ ​us​ ​to​ ​do,​ ​and​ ​to​ ​discern​ ​both the​ ​Word​ ​and​ ​in​ ​prayer.
Romans​ ​8:26​ ​(KJV)​ ​says,​ ​“Likewise​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​also​ ​helpeth​ ​our​ ​infirmities:​ ​for​ ​we​ ​know​ ​not​ ​what​ ​we​ ​should pray​ ​for​ ​as​ ​we​ ​ought:​ ​but​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​itself​ ​maketh​ ​intercession​ ​for​ ​us​ ​with​ ​groanings​ ​which​ ​cannot​ ​be​ ​uttered.”
Jesus​ ​promised​ ​in​ ​John​ ​14​ ​that​ ​the​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​will​ ​comfort​ ​us​ ​and​ ​bring​ ​us​ ​peace.​ ​The​ ​Holy​ ​Spirit​ ​will​ ​help and​ ​guide​ ​us​ ​in​ ​ministering,​ ​and​ ​guiding​ ​us​ ​in​ ​our​ ​lives,​ ​especially​ ​in​ ​prayer.
IDENTIFY​ ​THE​ ​STRONGMAN:
The​ ​strong​ ​man​ ​is​ ​one​ ​who​ ​controls​ ​a​ ​stronghold,​ ​a​ ​place​ ​or​ ​territory​ ​under​ ​his​ ​influence.​ ​This​ ​territory​ ​is heavily​ ​fortified.​ ​Hebrews​ ​11:3​ ​(KJV),​ ​“Through​ ​faith​ ​we​ ​understand​ ​that​ ​the​ ​worlds​ ​were​ ​framed​ ​by​ ​the​ ​word of​ ​God,​ ​so​ ​that​ ​things​ ​which​ ​are​ ​seen​ ​were​ ​not​ ​made​ ​of​ ​things​ ​which​ ​do​ ​appear.”​ ​The​ ​scripture​ ​says​ ​“worlds.” There​ ​is​ ​a​ ​physical​ ​world​ ​and​ ​a​ ​spiritual​ ​world,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​need​ ​to​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​things​ ​that​ ​are​ ​seen​ ​are​ ​a manifestation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​things​ ​that​ ​cannot​ ​be​ ​seen.
There​ ​is​ ​a​ ​way​ ​to​ ​locate​ ​things​ ​that​ ​are​ ​not​ ​seen.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​through​ ​the​ ​laws​ ​of​ ​faith.​ ​Faith​ ​is​ ​absolute​ ​dependence and​ ​reliance​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Word​ ​of​ ​God.​ ​The​ ​strongman​ ​is​ ​a​ ​satanic​ ​personality​ ​in​ ​charge​ ​or​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​a stronghold.​ ​2​ ​Corinthians​ ​10:4​ ​says,​ ​“For​ ​the​ ​weapons​ ​of​ ​our​ ​warfare​ ​are​ ​not​ ​carnal,​ ​but​ ​mighty​ ​through​ ​God to​ ​the​ ​pulling​ ​down​ ​of​ ​strong​ ​holds.”
A​ ​strongman​ ​is​ ​a​ ​fortified​ ​entity​ ​that​ ​Satan​ ​builds​ ​to​ ​exalt​ ​himself​ ​against​ ​the​ ​knowledge​ ​and​ ​plans​ ​of​ ​God. Satan​ ​always​ ​tries​ ​to​ ​operate​ ​under​ ​the​ ​cover​ ​of​ ​darkness​ ​and​ ​the​ ​only​ ​thing​ ​that​ ​exposes​ ​him​ ​is​ ​the​ ​light (illumination)​ ​of​ ​God’s​ ​Word.​ ​As​ ​long​ ​as​ ​Satan’s​ ​strongholds​ ​remain​ ​concealed,​ ​the​ ​strongman​ ​is​ ​safe.​ ​As soon​ ​as​ ​the​ ​strongman​ ​is​ ​identified,​ ​half​ ​of​ ​the​ ​victory​ ​is​ ​established.​ ​A​ ​strongman​ ​may​ ​have​ ​other​ ​evil​ ​spirits operating​ ​under​ ​his​ ​domain​ ​or​ ​authority,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​strongman​ ​is​ ​the​ ​ruling​ ​spirit.

An​ ​example​ ​may​ ​be​ ​“bitterness,”​ ​a​ ​strongman​ ​or​ ​ruling​ ​spirit.​ ​But​ ​under​ ​its​ ​domain​ ​or​ ​authority​ ​is​ ​resentment, unforgiveness,​ ​hatred,​ ​anger,​ ​wrath​ ​or​ ​rage,​ ​murder,​ ​etc.
You​ ​must​ ​bind​ ​the​ ​strongman!
We​ ​all​ ​have​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​extend​ ​our​ ​prayer​ ​life​ ​as​ ​far​ ​as​ ​we​ ​desire.​ ​God​ ​wants​ ​you​ ​to​ ​have​ ​the​ ​faith​ ​and security​ ​that​ ​He​ ​will​ ​guide​ ​you​ ​and​ ​He​ ​will​ ​get​ ​you​ ​through​ ​any​ ​circumstance.​ ​Whether​ ​you​ ​are​ ​needing​ ​help, healing,​ ​breakthrough,​ ​discernment,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​all​ ​found​ ​in​ ​your​ ​prayer​ ​life.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​a​ ​lifelong​ ​journey,​ ​but​ ​you​ ​have to​ ​begin​ ​somewhere,​ ​and​ ​if​ ​you​ ​feel​ ​the​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​go​ ​deeper​ ​in​ ​prayer,​ ​start​ ​now.​ ​God​ ​is​ ​here​ ​for​ ​you!​ ​Trust​ ​in Him,​ ​His​ ​Word​ ​reveals​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Spirit​ ​of​ ​God,​ ​and​ ​in​ ​all​ ​things​ ​get​ ​understanding.
Thank​ ​you​ ​so​ ​much​ ​for​ ​opting​ ​in​ ​to​ ​receive​ ​this​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​from​ ​me!​ ​I​ ​hope​ ​it​ ​has​ ​been​ ​a​ ​blessing​ ​to​ ​you. Please​ ​look​ ​for​ ​more​ ​of​ ​these​ ​types​ ​of​ ​teaching​ ​series​ ​from​ ​me​ ​in​ ​the​ ​future.
I​ ​love​ ​you​ ​and​ ​I​ ​am​ ​praying​ ​for​ ​you!
