Christians gain freedom in prayer the moment you proclaim Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Our forefathers wanted to establish our freedom from the tyranny of Great Britain. The statement of independence initiated a war.
Freedom in Prayer
Jesus broke the chains of power and bondage over anything that could hold you captive or in servitude. He paid the price in whole at the cross and sits on the right hand of the throne interceding and advocating for us. God’s army and weapons are mighty. At the name of Jesus, demons tremble. There is power in the name of Jesus.
Power in Prayer
Continual, fervent prayer of the church dispatched the angel of the Lord. Their prayer moved the hand of God. The angel awoke Peter in his prison cell. He was ordered to put his sandals on because he had rested knowing his end would not come until God called him to heaven. the angel led him out from the inner most part of the prison through all the locked gates. Miracles happened while the church prayed.
God’s Purpose in Prayer
You will find freedom in the practice and habit of prayer. Fellowship with God is most realized in prayer. Prayer is designed to remove attractions to the things of the world and draw us near to the bleeding side of Jesus. Through prayer and a relationship with God in His Word, you will be able to test the spirits and hear God’s leading.
- 1 John 4:1
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
- Psalms 139:23
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
Healing and Forgiveness in Prayer
God will grant healing and forgiveness in the fervent and consistent prayer of righteous men.
- James 5:14-20
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit. 19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.
