Sword of the Spirit – Praying – part 2

Sunday September 14, 2014

(Apostle Dale shared about some things happening in Russia and Ukraine.) Romans 8:26states that the Spirit makes intercession for us. Your prayers pave the road you walk on and put signs on the road of your life. Have a prayer life and follow the Holy Spirit to guide you. Jude 20-21 tells us to build ourselves up in faith by praying in the Holy Spirit. We build ourselves up, but it is in God’s strength, not our own (Ephesians 6:10-18). Realize that you cannot do it and rely on His strength. The battle is the Lord’s, and the victory is ours. Even if you are struggling in your life, God is still Lord. It is a finished work. You are expected to defeat the enemy and your problems, not to be afraid of them. Pray in tongues and pray the Scriptures. The only part of the armor (Ephesians 6) that is offensive and brings external changes is the sword of the Spirit prayed (the Scripture prayed). Apostle Dale shares about a man who fell a couple stories and broke his back. When Apostle Dale yelled at the man screaming in pain to speak out a Scripture, he started quoting the 23rd Psalm. After a confrontation three times with the doctor, the man started repenting to his wife. He was admitted on Saturday with a broken back and went home on Monday without a broken back! Praise God! THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT IS THE SCRIPTURE YOU SPEAK AND PRAY!
