God’s Most Valuable Tool: Prayer

When I came to the Lord and found out that I had authority over spiritual things, I thought to myself that I have weapons to change things. I began to seek and destroy devils wherever I found them. I found that I could at the name of Jesus chase any devil out my presence. God stop me one day and asked what I was doing? I told him that I was casting out devils. He said to me, no what you are doing is following the devil. He said stop doing this and follow me. He said when you run across them then cast them out. So I stop following satan and began to following God wherever He led me. I learned that God’s tools can be used as weapons. Since the beginning of time, man has used everything to defend himself. It started with a rock, then sticks, stones, water, trees, axes, swords, spears, poison, rope, gunpowder, rifles and canons. Weapons of every shape and size has been used for whatever. There has been a nationwide debate about guns and gun control. It has been ongoing for 40 years. I don’t think people will ever make up their mind about the subject. But all these weapons can’t defend you against a spiritual attack. It is fought on a different plane. But it has some of the same results. People have gotten sick and died from these attacks. Yet most people don’t see or understand the battle. They cry out to God for help because they are under attack. I have had more people ask me to prayer for them. I have never refused anyone. But more than not, God wants the individual to pray through the situation. With all kinds of weapons, you must practice and use them to become proficient. God began to teach me to use prayer as a weapon. He started with small things, like a headache. Then I moved into larger things, like the weather. It came as no surprise that as I developed my prayer life, I could accomplish more in the kingdom of God. As the bible says in 2 Corinthians 10:4 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds..” (KJV)  Again in Ephesians 6:11-12 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”(KJV).
