Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
Let these sayings sink down into your ears:
And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed,...
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee:...
1 Corinthians 14:25
...and so falling down on his face he will worship God,...
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,...
And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
...and when they were awake, they saw his glory,...
Prayers from the righteous are critical for us to thrive in godly endeavors. The Word of God commands us to watch and pray. We cannot know God without prayer and other means of daily intimacy with Him. Our Father does not appreciate selfishly rushed, and dull prayers. The Lord is holy and awesome. We owe Him quality periods of regular devotion in postures of worship and adoration for the great God that He is. One excellent biblical example is Daniel who prayed on his knees three times a day (Daniel 6:10) .
Our prayers are vitally necessary to bind and to loose. Satan is in revolution mode because he knows that time for him is shorter. Many Christians are talking about revival. For such a time as this, revival is not enough! We members of the body of Christ need to be about holy revolution because the mission of Satan is to destroy so that the gospel of God will not progress. We have orders from our Lord to possess the land and to take the kingdom (Daniel 7).
Fervent prayers from the righteous can undue damage caused by Satan. Prayer can prevent calamities, pull down strongholds, destroy the works of the devil, overthrow plans, change hearts, deliver souls, alert to danger, and bring the counsel of the heathen to nought. Too much is happening on our watch because we are not watching! Of a certainty, Satan and his people are watching and know that not enough of us are in watch formation. That is why he has more leverage than he should.
God is not pleased with much of the lax conduct of some of His people. We desire moves of God while He desires that we move to Him. Prayers from the holy stir God to action. Earnest prayers in righteousness bring sovereign results.
Lord, please help us to live holy lives, to pray holy prayers, and to be holy as You are holy - so says Your holy Word.
Thank You, Lord - Amen.
