Pray

Do we know the power of our prayers?

Do we know that God awaits our prayers and wants to answer them?

Do we know that our prayers ascend for God to hold in the golden bowls of incense before His throne?

Do we know that our prayers continue forever?

Do we know that things actually change when we pray?

Are we carving out time to pray? Are we protecting that time to pray?

Satanist worldwide pray aggressively every day at noon for darkness to prevail, especially over Christians. For Christian families to experience strife and divorce. For churches to grow lukewarm or politically correct. Satanists believe that Christianity is a relic of the past that needs to pass away permanently.

Every day at 3:33, Christians all over are praying Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” We need to hear from God regarding his purposes for us during the days ahead and regarding intercession for healing of our country. Please set an alarm on your phone and join us.

Jesus prayed often. He prayed out loud. He prayed silently. He prayed alone. He prayed to the Father. He prayed for Himself. He prayed for the children. He prayed for the saints. He prayed with tears and groaning. He taught others how to pray.

When we pray, heavenly hosts surround and protect us according to God’s will and purposes and no darkness can penetrate. Don’t worry about praying out loud that the enemy will hear your prayers and make plans against you. He has minions but is not omnipresent. Praying out loud can protect us from intrusive thoughts. The Spirit stirs our hearts while our ears hear our cries while our brain processes it all.

On our knees. On our faces. From the heart.

Pray for yourself. Pray for your family. Pray for those in need. Pray for the children. Pray for your enemies. Pray for your city. Pray for our nation. Pray for the saints. Pray the Lord’s Prayer. Pray for salvation for the souls of men. Pray for the forces of darkness to be pushed back that the light of the Gospel might go forth. Pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.

The angels of God wait at the throne to receive orders from Him to go and make way to answer our prayers. They’re awaiting His order to dispatch speedily at the sound of your cries, pleas and requests lifted in faith with thanksgiving to God.

In Jesus’ name, pray.

Matthew 5:6-13 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you needbefore you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]but deliver us from the evil one.[b]
