Theme: “PRAYING ALWAYS"

And he spake a parable unto them to
this end, that men ought always to pray,
and not to faint (Luke 18:1).
The events and happenings in our nation
reveal the need for us to pray, and keep
praying, for the changes we crave to manifest
fully the way we want. The obligation is on us to do
something about security, the healthcare system, the
economy, etc., not by bearing arms, but through
effectual prayer and coordinated efforts.
2 Corinthians 10:4 says, “For the weapons of our
warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the
pulling down of strong holds” ; one of those weapons
is prayer. Through prayer, we can pull down the forces
of violence, and terrorism. Often times, the acts of
wickedness, chaos, anarchy, and turmoil in a nation are
the results of demonic activities.
But thanks be unto God! We have the authority
to cast out demons and frustrate their efforts; we have
the power in Christ to put them in check, and forbid
them from running rampage in our nation, homes, and
society. We’ve been vested with all power and
authority in heaven and on earth to subdue, dominate
and take charge of our world. We have the authority of
Jesus; He sent us in His Name.
Therefore, we can determine what happens in
our lives, in the lives of our loved ones, and in our
nation, by using the Name of Jesus. His Name is an
instrument. Even now, take the next few minutes to
pray for your country. Using the Name of Jesus, declare
peace and security within its borders. Rebuke the demonic spirits of violence, and wickedness; command
them to lose their grip over the nation, and its
We’re responsible to God and to the country
to see to it that we experience peace, security, and
prosperity; and according to God’s Word, we can
achieve this through prayer. Jeremiah 29:7 says, “And
seek the peace of the city…and pray unto the LORD for
it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.”
I come against the schemes and devices of the devil
to cause chaos and violence in our country. I declare
peace, progress and prosperity; safety and security
within our borders, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
