Prayers that Pack a Punch
Millions of people pray passionless, going-through-the-motions type of prayers everyday and see no response. Mechanical prayer does not stir the heart of God. The Bible teaches that prayer is not to be canned or mechanical. Prayer is talking to God. It's talking to Him out of your heart. It's joining with Him as you engage the enemy in warfare. If the devil can get you to think that you are without spiritual power and authority from God, he will keep you defeated. but if you begin to believe that you have “authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy,” you will see God do miracles (Luke 10:19)! God has given you the victory, so seize it! Now that’s real hope.
