|Continuously In Prayer|
|2 Samuel 5:17-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|How many are simply satisfied with a single knock and give up? Do we not give-up too quickly? We should always pray and ask God about everything before we do it. How many of us act before we pray? We should always know that Gods knows our future and what's best, therefore we should always seek after His direction. God is a jealous god and demands no other idols before Him. A lot of times we assume what God will say and act on it before we ask. We know Gods nature and know that He is good but the one thing we do not know is His will. This is why we must pray and ask Him. With David and the battles between the Philistines the first was a true battle, a fight, but the second was simply to wait and watch. You'll never know what God wants unless you ask. With the prayer of Gideon he asked God to do two things and those things were answered. Two simple things that Gideon asked but when God proved Himself Gideon never doubted afterwards. With Gideon's battle God told him that he had too many people and sifted them down to 300 men and no swords. In the end, it took trumpets and lanterns to slay thousands of men. How did both of these men know what to do in order to win their battles? Prayer and obedience. Eph 6:18, there's things you want to see done but you've got to pray and obey. Just because it works for others and it's worked for you in the past doesn't mean that it's what God has planned for you to do. The affect to obeying God and being obedient to His word effects the rest of our future generations.|

|A Life Of Prayer|
|Daniel 6:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Daniel's practice was a life of prayer. It was the one thing that others could depend on was Daniel to pray. The second thing about Daniel was his house. His house was a place of prayer. This doesn't have to be an actual house. Luke 6 tells us about Jesus praying all night long on a mountain. At this time He was praying about calling 12 men that would be His followers as disciples. Is your house a place of prayer? If the church is the only place where you can get close to God then that's a sad thought. The third is that he opened up his windows that was towards Jerusalem. He wasn't ashamed for those to hear him prayer. How many have a problem praying at your own dinner table? We shouldn't be afraid or ashamed to pray. 1 Kings 8:46-50, Daniel was praying according to scripture. What's your Jerusalem? God doesn't dwell in Jerusalem nor in the temple or church house. God dwells within you if you've been born again. The fourth, he kneeled upon his knees. This means he was humbled, broken and at Gods will. If you're really wanting to affect things then you're going to have to be humbled. For Daniel just for as us, we should not let the ups and downs affect our prayers. Five, Daniel knew he was going to be thrown into a lions den and yet he continued to give thanks unto God. When it comes to praying we should not ask for something until we've given thanks to Him first. Daniel didn't know if God would deliver him or not but he still thanked God anyway. Are you bitter because you feel as if God didn't do it your way? God has never made a bad decision. Gods never messed anything up. The joy of having God is that you don't have to worry about finding a pastor or a friend in your very time of need. God is always there, always listening, and always loving.|

|Our Lifeline, Prayer|
|Daniel 6:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|While examining yourself, how often do you pray to God? Churches often have a revival once or twice a year but, while these revivals are good they do not last. We should have an internal revival daily within ourselves. Our human flesh does not want to humble itself to God. Most of the times we find ourselves on top of the mountain and not praying. We all need God on the mountain tops the same as in the valleys. How do you help people see the need they need? It's hard enough to see it in ourselves. Often in our lives the things around us are brought upon by disasters that happen around us. Most Wednesday night services were started because of the wars our country were in to pray for our loved ones and the countries safety. What's to be expected if we fully give ourselves to prayer? You may not be able to do a lot of things but the one thing that each and every person can do is pray. Do you truly care for the people around you? We must be honest when it comes to the works that we should be doing. We often say, "that's not my job", "they're not my family", etc. There have been great revivals in history. Simple men standing and proclaiming God to hundreds if not millions of lost and saved alike. Great revivals are not dictated on the time they were because great revivals have been going on since biblical times.|

|Pray For One Another|
|1 Thessalonians 5:15-28 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We should be constantly growing in grace as we go along. Not only are we moving closer to God as we age but we should also grow as a Christian as we get closer to Him. We should be praying for each other and in order to do that we must be completely engaged. Have you ever woke up with someone on your mind? It's a wonderful thing to know that someone is praying for you.
Do you think that it doesn't make a difference to pray? It all revolves around whom you're praying to. How big is your god?
Gal 6:2, we should bare each other's burdens, pray for each other.
Don't excuse yourself without a permission slip. If you think that you're not a prayer warrior then you're limiting the god that you're serving. The God that called you is the one that keeps you therefore you should have great confidence. We should be praying for each other. Praying means it will cost you. It requires your time and might be hard to bare someone's burden.
We should greet each other with love and respect. Some cultures still greet with a kiss, we are not one of them but we do have handshakes, hugs and even eye contact.

|Weapons In The War|
|2 Corinthians 10:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A stronghold is something that has a hold of one that is strong. Addictions, fear, doubt and a lack of faith are all strongholds. Jesus can help you only if you let Him. Some say that we use Jesus as a crutch but the truth is, we should. We should depend on Him with anything and everything from the largest to the smallest things in life. Now we as humans do not have the ability to break a stronghold but we know the one that can.
The war against the strongholds are not and will not be the carnal objects. Most that want help want it instantly which they will turn to drugs, medication and alcohol. The carnal objects are temporary just covering up the strongholds. So how do we fight against the strongholds?
Eph 6:14-17 these items are spiritual items, they can't be physically seen.
If you want out of the stronghold then ask God to have it removed but you must be ready AND willing. If we believe that God can remove the strongholds then why are they still in our lives? Because we think we can fix it ourselves. One problem is that non-spiritual people are thinking they can be cured of their stronghold thru God. The unsaved can't speak spiritually because they do not have the spirit of God in them. Now if you're born again then you have a power within you that is able to remove the strongholds. The second problem is that the saved try to fix it with fleshly fixes. The saved should be praying for the strongholds to be removed from others lives. If you're one of the ones that try to fix the problems yourself then you'll walk around worrying yourself to a literal death.
