The greatest offensive weapon of the church: PREVAILING PRAYER.
Prevail by definition-"to persevere and gain absolute triumph."
Let's come out of Laodicea. We haven't arrived yet.
Consider 1 Chronicles 16:11; Acts 1:14; Acts 2:42; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; James 5:17,18; 1 Peter 5:8; Matthew 16:18; James 4:6; etc.
Church of the living God-please push it through in prevailing prayer! Jesus Christ had to. Are we now to believe we don't?
Stop playing defense, focusing on past mistakes or what hasn't happened yet, thinking no-one really wants this message or lifestyle, or feeling like a perpetual, helpless victim of circumstances. This is not meant to be unsympathetic at all to those of us who struggle.
There's no church growth, impact, revival, resource, etc., we can't have with prevailing prayer in the will and timing of God, also assuming a follow up effort to evangelize and reap a harvest that is BEYOND OVERRIPE!
The only thing that can stop this is the church itself.
