PRAYER HAS NO BOUNDARIES!
Through prayer, we connect corporately, in the Spirit, by faith!
Powerful corporate prayer is found throughout the Scripture. In each instance, we are able to see man’s dilemma, hear his cry and witness our God’s response.
Acts 12 tells the story of corporate prayer being made for Peter’s deliverance from prison and sure death at the hands of King Herod Agrippa. It seems our gracious God answered their prayer in spite of their unbelief (evidenced in their response to Peter’s presence at the door). Why? It was the preordained will of God.
Acts 4 tells the story of a persecuted Church who prayed for God’s intervention. They were seeking to fulfill the will of God by preaching the Gospel and were being dreadfully opposed by the “system” or “kingdom” that already existed in the world in which they lived.
† Verses 24 and 31 tell the story very simply: “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the Word of God with boldness.”
The Church needed God’s divine intervention then and we need it now even more. Why? We are quite possibly living in the darkness time in history! Thank God, His Word says “where sin abounds, His grace abounds even more.”
† Romans 4: 19-21 “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Our God has already saved, delivered and set His people free through Jesus Christ, His Son, our Savior, Lord and soon coming King.
We, His watchmen enforce our Heavenly Father’s will in the heavens, the earth, the waters, and the underworld through faith, decree, declaration, demand, command in Jesus name! We joyfully wield the most powerful weapons of all: worship, praise, and thanksgiving to our God! We rejoice, knowing He answers the prayers of those whom He alone has made righteous!
