Prevailing Prayer June 22 & 23

PRAYING FOR BREAKTHROUGH

“Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends greetings. He is always wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.” Colossians 4:12 NIV

“My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you,” Galatians 4:19 NKJV

PREVAILING PRAYER IS PRAYING UNTIL WE HAVE A BREAKTHROUGH ON THE INSIDE

“Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.”  Luke 22:39-46 NKJV

THE ENEMY WANTS TO SILENCE YOUR VOICE

“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.”  Acts 4:29-31 NKJV

 “And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.”  Acts 4:33 NKJV 

 WHEN WE PRAY PREVAILING PRAYERS GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU WORDS TO PRAY

 “So, he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts. ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”  Zechariah 4:6-7 NKJV

GOD WANTS TO PUT HIS WORD IN YOUR MOUTH

“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”  Isaiah 55:11 NIV

1)    GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU CREATIVE WORDS OF DECLARATIONS

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.” James 5:16-18 NKJV

2)    GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU WORDS FOR SPIRITUAL WARFARE

“Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.” Matthew 4:10-11 NIV

 “And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 AMPC
