THE MYSTERIES OF PRAYER REVEALED (Part 3)
(This story started from Part 1 . You can check our page below for the Part 1 & 2 )
…….And this man said that when prayer breaks through like that, the answer will always come. He said he does not know a case where prayer broke through and the answer did not come. He said the answer always came, but in most cases, it would never get to the person who asked. Why? Battle in the heavenlies. He says as long as they succeed in cutting off the open heavens and the rock is restored, they watch this person, they are waiting because they know the answer is definitely coming.
And then this man spoke something that really shook my faith. It is because of the next part he shared that I went into fasting ten days to say, Lord, is this true? Can you prove it to me? This man said that every Christian has got an angel serving that Christian. Now we know the Bible says angels are ministering spirits to us. He said that when people pray, the answer comes in the hands of the angel. The angel brings the answer like we can read it in the book of Daniel. Then he said something really tough; if the one who prays knows the spiritual armors and is clothed with them, the answer comes by an angel who is also clothed in full armor.
If the one who prays doesn’t care about spiritual armory, their angels come without spiritual armor. Christians who don’t care about what kind of thoughts come into their minds. They don’t fight the battle of their minds. Their angels come without the helmet. Whatever spiritual weapon you ignore on earth, the angel doesn’t have it as he serves you. In other words, our spiritual armor is not protecting our physical bodies; it’s protecting our spiritual exploits.
This man said, when the angel is coming, they would focus and look at him and notice the areas which are not covered, and those are the areas they would attack. If he has no helmet, they would shoot at his head. If he has no breastplate, they would shoot at his chest. If he has no shoes, they would make a fire that he is walking in the fire.
Now I am just repeating what this man said. Actually, we asked him, “Can angels feel fire?” And you know what he said to us? Remember this is a spiritual realm. These are spirits dealing with spirits. The battle is intensive, and when they overpower an angel of God, the first thing they target is the answer he is carrying, and they get that from him, that is what they give through the cults, the witchcraft, and people say, “I got this because of witchcraft.”
Remember what the Bible says in the book of James? All good things come from God. So where does the devil get the things he gives to his people? Some people who cannot have children, they go to witch doctors and satanists, and they get pregnant! Who gave them that baby? Is satan a creator? NO! He steals from those who don’t pray to the end. Jesus said, “Pray without ceasing.” And then He said, “But when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith?” Will He find you still there waiting? Or will you have given up and the enemy would steal what you have prayed for?
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
The 7 whole armor of God are:
2, Breastplate of righteousness
3, preparation of the Gospel of peace.
4, Shield of faith
5, Helmet of Salvation
6, Sword of the Spirit
You can see that prayer is not the first in the list of the whole armor of God, neither is fasting, speaking in tongues or sowing seeds. Many churches and ministers today are so much interested in prayer, but many are praying ignorantly. Your “fireful” prayer life without a life of holiness and righteousness will only make your prayer in the spiritual realm to be fading but not fervent.
Churches who teach prayer without purity are ignorant of effective and fervent prayer. If you want your prayer to be effective and too powerful for devil and demons to resist, you need genuine salvation, you need to speak truth always, you need to live righteous life, you need to preach the gospel always, you need faith in Christ, not faith in your prayer, you need to read and mediate God’s word, then you need to pray without ceasing.
