Jesus Christ said He has given us the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and whatsoever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever we loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven, this statement shows that there’s a Power in Christians that makes the will of God prevails in the earth, whenever we are asking God to do exactly what He wants to do in earth, our prayers become very powerful—Because the Power of God is already in the body of Christ to bring to pass all the will of God. Therefore, the next atmosphere that makes prayer work is THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE WILL OF GOD
Matthew 18: 18. Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
2) The Atmosphere of the Will of God. You know, when Jesus Christ was with the disciples (apostles), He told them that whatsoever they ask God to do in His name, it will be done, and the apostles did this many times and it worked, however, after a while, the apostles discovered that prayers do not only answer because we prayed them in Jesus’ name, they also found out that prayer gets answered speedily without delay when such prayer agrees with the will of God. Therefore, if your prayer is going to work, it must agree with the will of God, and not only that, it must also agree with divine timing—You MUST be able to pray the right prayer God expects you to pray per time
1 John 5: 14. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15. And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.
1 John 5:14-15 NLT
The question now is, How do I KNOW the will of God?, this question is very essential because you can’t pray according to the will of God if you don’t know the will of God for your life and current situations, in fact, you have to be able to pray in alignment with the will of God for the particular time and hour you set your heart to pray. The Answer—It is not hard to know the will of God for our lives and destinies, the Bible already contains several divine promises and truths that reveals what God wants for us His children, therefore, if you pray according to what God has revealed concerning you in the Scriptures, you are automatically praying according to the will of God
Many of you are so lazy when it comes to Bible study and you want to become a prayer warrior, it’s not possible! When we pray, we pray the Bible, we pray the Word of God, and if you don’t know the word of God, how will you be able to pray the word of God into fulfillment?! When Satan tempted Jesus, Jesus defeated him with the word of God, the word of God is your Sword and it’s very powerful for great victories in the place of prayer. In fact, angels respond to the Word of God, angels carry with them copies of the Scriptures to measure your prayers with what is written in the Bible, So, if any of your prayers does not agree with the Word of God, don’t expect it to be answered by God
There are so many prophetic ministries that have risen up in these last days to teach people to pray in manners and ways that doesn’t agree with the Bible, they practice mysticism. And these people get frustrated, they feel like I have fasted and prayed and prayed and nothing seems to be happening but no one is telling them that they have been praying the wrong kinds of prayer.
We need to stop praying witchcraft prayers, I see a lot of powers and principalities prevailing over God’s people because we do not pray against powers and principalities anymore, we are now praying against ourselves, we pray against human beings and that is not what the Bible teaches
I usually tell people that the kind of personalities I deal with in spiritual warfare are far higher than thousands of witches and wizards and witchdoctors combined, and because of this, I am not afraid of any witch or satanist, I fight with the source of their powers, So, it’s a great distraction from the dark kingdom to make us pray against flesh and blood so much that we forgot our real enemies
Let us begin to pray the way Jesus teaches, let us pray the way the apostles prayed and we shall see great victories happen to us from heaven.
Also, you need to learn to quote Scriptures when you pray, in fact, you should recite Bible passages as frequently as possible during your prayers, you can write out powerful Bible verses on big papers or cards and paste them on the walls of your prayer room to help your brain master those verses
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.
Matthew 5:43-46 NLT
Now, the second place where we discover and pray according to the will of God is IN THE HOLY GHOST. The Spirit of God is always perfect and the Spirit of God is here on earth to fulfill the will of God. The Holy Spirit is not in us to help us fulfill our own will and lusts and desires, the Spirit is given to ensure that the will of God prevails in our lives and in the earth, therefore, if you seek the help of the Holy Spirit during prayer, you are wise and you will be so surprised by how the Spirit will help you
The Spirit of God can inspire you to pray the right prayers, He can strengthen you to pray, reveal to you what you should pray for, put the right utterances in your mouth as you pray, lead you in the actions and postures to take while in prayer. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit of Prayer Himself, He gets excited when you rise to pray, He is the greatest prayer warrior, you just need to ask Him to help you and He will come to do that, it’s so simple
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Romans 8:26-28 NLT
What this means is that, the Holy Spirit in you is praying for you using your spirit man, and sometimes the prayer gets so deep such that you can’t even hear what your spirit man is saying because your spirit keeps groaning in the Holy Ghost! There’s no prayer in this world that is as powerful and prevailing as Holy Ghost prayers!
I’m going to stop here, there’s a lot I’m still going to show you about Holy Ghost prayers and praying in tongues…! May the Power of God transform you into a prayer warrior in Jesus’ name! Amen.
