Praying is respecting God’s authority. It’s the creature calling on the Creator to say I need you. I want you before all these things. I’m solely dependent upon you and without you …
I am nothing. But with you, I can do all things.
God gave authority on earth to man so anything that happens on earth by God will only happen through a righteous man or woman. God needs man to commune with Him to stop judgment on earth because we have been given authority in this domain.
This is why satan is relentless at trying to frustrate you, so you won’t open your mouth and speak creative words of authority that shut him down. He knows that when you open your mouth in faith believing, heaven moves, things shake and God’s will manifests on earth.
James 5:16 says:
16 Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
Fervent prayer brings much power, demonstration, much ability, much manifestation. Ther word “fervent” in the Greek is the word, “energeo”, where we get the word “energy”. It means “to be active, efficient:—do, (be) effectual (fervent), be mighty in, show forth self, work (effectually in).
Fervent prayer involves your entire being: spirit, soul and body. It’s red-hot prayer that boils over from your heart. Fervent prayer is always based upon the God-kind of faith. This means before you open your mouth to pray and decree, you know the answer is yes and amen, because God told you to say it by His Spirit.
When you fervently pray, heaven is released into earth. If you don’t pray, who will? If you don’t pray, how can the angels be released to bring it to pass? All believers are called to pray to advance God’s kingdom on earth, thereby demolishing the enemy’s strongholds. So I admonish you … PRAY NOW!
