WHAT IS PRAYER & DELIVERANCE?
ALWAYS PRAY WITHOUT CEASING!
The idea of “always praying” may sound impossible to you depending on your understanding and experience with prayer. You may ask, “how is it possible to always pray and be able to attend to other matters at the same time?”
Depending on how old you are, you have noticed that life is a battle, and you must win. This battle is constant with many twists, turns, and dips that can throw you off at a moment’s notice.
One day you are up and winning and one day you are dragging along, but the power of God comes to us through AGGRESSIVE AND DIRECTED prayers to empower us and give us strength.
The disciples of Jesus were excited and exuberant because they were able to perform many of the same types of miracles as Jesus. The realization of the fact that we do not have to live in captivity, fear, or hostage by demonic forces is something indeed to be excited about!
Having access to this kind of power is what the devil doesn’t want to happen, I Corinthians 2:8 says that he was completely unaware of God’s plan. THAT’S BEAUTIFUL because we all have access to this tremendous power of God through the HOLY SPIRIT.
These prayers are best utilized when vocalized out loud with great projection, charging your soul, and confounding your enemy. However, the God that we serve knows our every thought even before we speak. In fact, we do not have to speak at all but simply speak in our minds, God still hears and answers us.
This is a special blessing when preparing to take an exam, standing in a crowd, or in a quiet atmosphere and you need the power of God to show up for you!
Prayer will refresh your energy and delete unnecessary files programmed by the enemy!
It is important that we continue to feed our spirit and bring our flesh under subjection so that we can live quiet and peaceful lives (I Corinthians 9:27; I Timothy 2:2). We must hold on to the truth that the Lord desires for us to be happy and enjoy life as a gift and not a burden.
Job 14:1, in Job’s anguish he spews out that, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble…” Amazing the things we say in our time of distress, but God will have us to think about good things (Philippians 4:8) and to focus on his promise and offer to us; John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
One of the things that Jesus wants us to know from Luke chapter 18; we cannot give up on our convictions, destiny, and purpose in life no matter how the enemy opposes us! We understand that His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts, so there are times when we have to convince God to be concerned about what concerns us.
In this parable, the unjust judge did not want to avenge the woman, but he reasoned that she is persistent and is not going to stop coming to him and decided to stand up for her. Jesus says, “And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cries day and night unto him, though He bears long with them?”
Persistent Prayer-powerful prayers that refuse to give up or to back down regardless of what is happening, regardless of how things may appear, and NEVER GIVES UP!

The Rejuvenation of Prayer By Gwen N. Stewart
Things pile up! This is a fact both naturally and spiritually within our lives. When addressing the natural things, we call it “Spring Cleaning” as stuff and things begin to overwhelm our living spaces but what is it called in the spirit?
I want to call it “Spirit Cleaning” because as life goes on from day to day many things can be dumped into the spirit and begin to pile up, slow down energy, hinder connection to God, and damper overall positive results in life.
The traumas and wounds that we experience in life if not thrown out through prayer will accumulate, eventually work against the believer, and ultimately attract demonic oppression.
The Rejuvenation of Prayer is having a specific prayer and fasting focus to empty out the issues and hurts that undermine our ambition and drive to live enthusiastic and vibrant lives for JESUS!
“Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.” I Peter 5:7
