Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him." Acts 12:5
AT HIS TABLE:
The last thing that our enemy wants us to do as Christians is to pray! Prayer is the weapon of mass destruction that the devil hates! C. S. Lewis put it well in his book The Screwtape Letters. Screwtape was the evil uncle of the character called Wormwood and he is teaching Wormwood about the awful effects of prayer when a Christian prays,
"The best thing, where it is possible is to keep the patient from the serious intention of praying altogether."
Then Screwtape tells Wormwood,
"Whenever they are attending to the enemy himself we are defeated."
Prayer is the biggest concern that our enemy has. So he will do everything possible to distract us from prayer. If you are reading this right now then STOP! Stop and pray right now, don't worry you can finish this later! Ok, good, your back! It is so important to your life that you pray. Do not allow distractions to keep you from prayer because right around the bend lies your blessing, but the devil knows this too so there is a fight to resist allowing you to pray. We are to pray without ceasing! Why? Because like Peter there are so many that are imprisoned to sin in their life.
"But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word." Acts 6:4
As God's warriors it is upon us to drop a few bombs each day on our enemies head! Pray without ceasing. Give the devil all that you can and defeat(take his feat) him today! Our enemy is so afraid of you when you pray, because prayer is that power which destroys his plans!
TO WIN THE DAY, PRAY!
