Prayers that Pack a Punch
Millions of people pray everyday. And did you know so many see little to no response? Hey, why is that? I'll tell you one of the biggest reasons is that much of the time people pray passionless, going-through-the-motions type of prayers. Mechanical prayer doesn't stir the heart of God. The Bible teaches that prayer is not to be canned and it's not to be 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. Now, if the devil can get you to think that you're without spiritual power and without spiritual authority, he will keep you defeated. But, if you begin to believe that you do have all “authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all power of the enemy,” as the Bible says, then you'll see God do miracles (Luke 10:19)! God has given you the victory, so seize it! Now that’s real hope.
