Pray in the Spirit!

We are in the middle of a clash of kingdoms! The kingdom
of God verses the kingdom of darkness. Satan has a desire to curtail any
influence that Jesus Christ and the Word of God has on human life. He seeks to
make black look white and white look black; he seeks to make bad look good, and
good look bad. He makes sin seem innocuous.
At the same time God is pushing His agenda to bring Jesus
Christ back to earth. The Words spoken by the prophets will come to pass! God
speaks – and then allows His Word to fulfill itself while He watches over it
(Isaiah 55:11; Jeremiah 1:12)!
We live on earth while at the same time owning allegiance
to the kingdom of heaven. The Father wants to use each one of us in carrying
out His kingdom purposes on earth before the rapture of the church.
The most effective thing we can do is PRAY! Notice
Ephesians 6:18: Praying always with all
prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all
perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
Praying in the spirit or in other tongues is the most
effective way to pray. When we pray in tongues we are uttering secret truths and hidden things not obvious
to the understanding
(1 Corinthians 14:2 – Amplified).When we pray in
tongues or with groaning which cannot be
uttered
(Romans 8:26), we are praying the perfect will of God (Romans
8:27).
This kind of praying is vehemently resisted by Satan and
his forces because it is so effective. So he stirs up controversy about praying
in tongues; decries it in every way possible so that believers generally ignore
its value. Then for those who do believe in the effectiveness of praying in the
spirit, Satan seeks to keep them so busy and preoccupied with other things that
they just don’t give time to it. All the while he pushes his dark agenda.
Let’s begin now to press into God and to take time every
day to pray in the spirit. Don’t be moved by thoughts and feelings that seem to
push you away. When fighting a spiritual battle, at times you sense great
resistance; it seems like you’re doing nothing and getting nowhere when praying
in the spirit. Don’t yield to this! Pray all the more! If you’ll persevere, the
Spirit of God will anoint you to intercede and at times groan and travail in
prayer (Isaiah 66:8).
Times are serious; more serious than ever in our
lifetime. Set time aside today and everyday to be used by the Father to pray in
the spirit. It’s time to give our Father the opportunity to show Himself
strong!
