Prayer can prolong your life and set the captives free.
When we get saved, we are anointed and appointed to preach the gospel to the poor. We are not to just talking about prayer or trying to pray, we are to learn how to pray. Moses stood in the gap for the people, God was going to destroy them Moses interceded, and the Lord said He changed His mind.
The timing of God – Children of Israel wondered in the wilderness for 40 years. God had given them the promise 40 years before. The will and purpose of God was accomplished, but God left the timing up to them and us.
The purpose of prayer is to get our agenda lined up with God’s agenda.
Matthew 16:18, NKJV “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
We are the Church.
Build your life on the Rock and the gates of hell cannot prevail. God created us to have relationship/fellowship with Him and be co-laborers with Him. Partnering with Him we have His will here on earth.
Are you serving God as a friend because of the relationship you have, or are you serving God as a servant because of the position you have?
