Prayer Cancels the Schemes of the Devil (Part 1)
1 Samuel 12:23-24 - "As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right. But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you."
Prayer is not an option for a believer, prayer is a necessity.
Prayer is not a religious activity, prayer is a legal activity.
God gave legal authority over the earth to human beings.
Prayer is not a religious ritual. Rather, it is a responsibility for God’s anointed ones to fulfill for individuals, families, churches, and the nations.
The Lord has appointed prayer warriors in His church. Prayer is a fight – resisting and attacking the enemy.
The Prophet Samuel was appointed by God over Israel, to protect the nation with persistent prayer.
It is a sin if we fail to pray for our family, our children, our church, and our nation.
James 5:16 - "The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]."
