Submit To God
Discouragement and fear are two of the main weapons in the satanic armoury of our enemies. The first step is to dishearten God's people - to crush their spirit, depress their soul, demoralise their confidence in God, and dash their hopes into the ground. Once someone has become downhearted, disappointed, and despondent, the next weapon is fear.
Fear is the opposite of faith, for when fear increases it causes faith to decrease - and when faith stands firm on the promises of God, fear flees far away, just as Scripture teaches. 'RESIST the enemy' is the instruction from James, the apostle, "Submit to God. Resist the devil, and if you do, the enemy will flee from you."
The biblical way to dispel fear is to rejoice in the Lord, no matter what difficulties or dangers we face.
God would have us to learn. May we foster a teachable spirit and develop a willingness to put the lessons we learn into practice, as we occupy until Jesus comes, so that we may finish the good work that God has prepared for us to do and hear Him say, "well done good and faithful servant."
Then the peoples around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You that we are part of the Body of Christ, and that we are being built into a spiritual Temple for Your greater glory. Keep us from falling prey to discouragement and fear, we realize that they are counter-productive to a fruitful Christian life. We pray that we may rejoice with all the saints and worship before Your throne, knowing that the joy of the Lord strengthens the inner person and helps us to grow in grace and in a knowledge of Jesus. We pray that we may submit our lives to you and be ready to resist the devil, whether he comes as an angel of light or a roaring lion, and we pray that we may finish the good work that You have prepared for us to do, for our eternal benefit and Your greater glory. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
