Ephesians 6:10-18 speaks of putting on our spiritual armor in resisting attacks of the devil. Paul is exhorting us to stand against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places... to withstand in a battle-stance attitude! This means to be determined not to give up ground! Prayer is how we engage in this warfare. Praying in the spirit, armed with the Word Of God, keeps us steady in the power of the Lord's might. This allows us to lose no ground and makes us victorious, time and time again!!!
Matthew 21:22 (Passion) "Everything you pray for with the fullness of faith you will receive!" In this scripture we see Yeshuah teaching his disciples that if faith's fullness lived in them, they could speak to the physical creation around them and it would respond. Faith brings the reality of the kingdom realm and unlocks great authority for us as believers!!! Praying men and women always get Yehweh's attention and they hear Yehweh speaking. It has been that way since the beginning. We see in Acts 10:1-2 we can save our own house the same way Cornelius saved his. In a single day, with a glorious miracle, his entire household was saved and filled with Holy Spirit. In one day his house was transformed from spiritual blindness to marvelous light and life. (Out of darkness into light). All because one man was determined to save his house! God help us to get serious and determined about praying for OUR lost family and friends
