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.
I Thessalonians 5:17
17 pray without ceasing,
For truly good prayer there must be miracles
. Satan has had much time and the leeway to ruin most areas of our life, holding us in bondage to sickness, poverty, bad relationships
etc. But, with God all things are possible, and it is His desire that His children succeed, so our prayer can overcome these things. Miracles are for today. There are a few conditions however.
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God.
23 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
24 "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord
8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
25 "And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.
We must not doubt, be double-minded
, or hold anything against anyone. For the miraculous to work, the flow of power from God's realm must not be broken by human weaknesses
such as resentment, bitterness, lack of forgiveness, jealousy, envy or whatever. Miracles flow from God to this physical earth through love
28 A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends.
In John 17:20-23 Jesus said:
20 "I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
21 "that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22 "And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:
23 "I in them, and You in Me that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
In Luke 11:17 again Jesus said:
17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.
6 And the LORD said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
Good and productive warfare prayer
is executed through your whole being. All is involved. Your attitude, emotions and actions, should be geared towards winning
! We must forget how we look and how we sound to battle successfully. When we are at war
in the natural realm, do we care what others think of our actions, how we are dressed, or what our hair looks like? No, we roll up our sleeves and go at it! It should be the same in our supernatural battles
in Prayer. Jesus chastened the religious leaders of His day
for pride and long, stuffy, ineffective prayers. He said they actually shut the Kingdom up for men rather than opening it, and its blessings, to them.
13 "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
14 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.
