The Power of a War Room!

The Power of a War Room!

By now, you’ve probably seen the movie War Room once or more.  It’s truly amazing how a movie on prayer could make such a huge impact. The acting was superb, the story line touching, and the topic unsurpassed. I found myself challenged with heart to change the way pray and war every day.  It wasn’t an accident that this movie came out at a time such as this, a time when the war is escalating and God is looking for warriors willing to fight the good fight of faith.  In the movie, Miss Clara, leads young Elizabeth Jordan on a prayer journey to fight for her marriage. She demonstrates beautifully that prayer is the only thing that can heal the brokenness in both her heart and her husband’s heart. Miss Clara speaks great truth. Here are a couple things she says: You need to do your fighting in prayer! You got to plead with God so that He can do only what He can...

Learn what war room prayer is and how to start your very own war room prayer wall, a war room binder, or simply a prayer strategy.    What is War Room Prayer? Christians often use the term “war room prayer” in reference to spiritual warfare, which is clearly taught in Scripture. War room prayer involves putting on the armor of God (see Ephesians 6:10-11), using spiritual weapons to demolish spiritual strongholds (see 2 Corinthians 10:4-5) and praying for protection against our spiritual enemy (see 1 Peter 5:8-9).  It is vitally important for us as believers to remember that there is spiritual warfare going on all around us so that we can be fully equipped to stand firm on the truths of God’s Word.

How Should I Create My own War Room Prayer Strategy What is a War Room Prayer Strategy? The war room. Where prayer strategy happens. Where things get real. Where battle lines are drawn. Not just a military facility or political command center, but a space where believers go to battle against a very real enemy.  You need a war room prayer strategy. Matthew 6:6 (NKJV) says; “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” You’ve likely seen or heard of the hit movie War Room staring Priscilla Shirer.  The film illustrates the impact prayer has on us and our situations.  It’s a cinematic reminder of the authority promised us in 2 Corinthians 10:7-8 and the power we possess in 2 Timothy 1:7.

Overcome Ridicule – Nehemiah 4:3 Pt. 2

What does ridicule mean? Unkind words or actions that make someone or something look stupid.To ridicule is to make fun of, either playfully or with the intention of humiliating: to ridicule a pretentious person. To deride is to laugh at scornfully. To mock is to make fun of by imitating another:  Remarks designed to excite laughter with a degree of contempt; wit of that species which provokes contemptuous laughter; disparagement by making a person an object of laughter; banter; -- a term lighter than derision   Scripture Ingredient Joshua 5:9 And the Lord said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.  Psalms 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.  Psalms 42:10 [As] with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where [is] thy God?  Luke 1:25 Thus hath the Lord dealt...

OVERCOME RIDICULE – Pt 1

OVERCOME RIDICULE – Pt 1

Nehemiah 4:1-6: - 1 When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became angry and was greatly incensed. He ridiculed the Jews, 2 and in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria, he said, “What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble—burned as they are?” 3 Tobiah the Ammonite, who was at his side, said, “What they are building—even a fox climbing up on it would break down their wall of stones!” 4 Hear us, our God, for we are despised. Turn their insults back on their own heads. Give them over as plunder in a land of captivity. 5 Do not cover up their guilt or blot out their sins from your sight, for they have thrown insults in the face of the builders. 6 So we rebuilt the wall till...

Jesus Is Risen!

Jesus Is Risen!

Resurrection Prayers for You Sunday morning while it was still dark Soldiers stationed at the tomb of Jesus felt an intense earthquake. Then they saw a great light. A small star in the heavens announced Christ’s birth…And a powerful light announced his rebirth. (Matthew 28: 1 - 7)  Let’s capture this epic event.1. After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.2. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.3. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.4. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.5. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.6. He is not here; he has risen, just...

The Elders, the People, and the Prayer of Faith (Sermon)

The Elders, the People, and the Prayer of Faith (Sermon)

Resource by  John Piper: Scripture: James 5:13–18    Topic: Kingdom of God Is any one among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects. Elijah was a man of like nature with ourselves and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought fort its fruit. Last week I tried...

Faith Is Meant to Turn God’s Promises into Our Realities

Faith Is Meant to Turn God’s Promises into Our Realities

What is the purpose of faith? Faith is God’s chosen vehicle to get His salvation and His blessings to you in a controlled and legal way. Now, there is more to that statement than we can cover in one article, but here is one thought – We have the promises so that we might be partakers of God’s salvation, character, and blessings. The purpose of Salvation and the purpose of faith is to turn promises into reality. Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. Through these, He has given us His precious and magnificent promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, now that you have escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason,...

Prayer of Hope?

Prayer of Hope?

There is no such thing in the Bible as a prayer of hope. Hope is a step before faith. Hope considers the answer a possibility, faith knows that the answer is a reality. Hope expects it someday, faith has it now. Hope is in the future, faith is in the now. Faith possesses the reality of the answer in the spirit, and knows that it will come to pass. Hope is a belief in the general promises of God, faith is a belief in the specific will and promise of God. Hope considers the answer a possibility, faith knows that the answer is a reality. Prayer is based on faith and not hope. We are told to believe when we pray, not hope. Jesus replied to them, “Have faith in God. I assure you: If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it...
