Today, we are living in desperate times. Yet, the Church is not desperate before God in prayer.
Jesus said to Peter, James, and John, “What? Could you not watch with me one hour?” (Matthew 26:40 NKJV). We say, “Shame on you, Peter! Shame on you, John! How terrible! Not watching with the Lord in prayer for even one hour!” But look out. Whenever you point a finger at someone else, there are three pointing back at you.
Prayer is the most important activity a born-again Christian can perform. It should head your list of priorities, for certainly the world around us desperately needs prayer. Prayer will open the door for God to do a glorious work in these last days. Prayer will stem the tide of evil.
This collection of studies on prayer presents you with certain Scriptures, thoughts, and rules. When you put them into practice in your life, they will bring you into a new relationship with God, and help you to experience a more effective and dynamic prayer life in which to do battle against the evil forces in these last days. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against spirit powers and principalities, thus the weapons of our warfare cannot be carnal. Prayer is the most potent weapon that we possess in our spiritual arsenal and by it we can pull down the strongholds of the enemy. Does Satan have a stronghold on your city government? Does he have a stronghold on your husband or wife or children? Through this book you will learn how to break down these strongholds.
