It is always important to pray. As we know, prayer changes things. Personally, whenever I pray regularly, I feel God’s power in my life. There is something about God’s Word coming forth from my own mouth that makes my problems subside. My issues subside. My pain diminishes. Whenever I let the things of life take me away from regular prayer, those same problems grow in power in my mind. I start focusing on my issues. I start feeling pain and it seems to grow in power. I have a few prayer books, and many versions of the Bible, the Amplified being my favorite, and I copied these Bible Scriptures from a book called Prayers that Rout demons, by John Eckhardt. I like his compilation of Scriptures because they focus on “engaging the enemy”. The Bible tells us to “resist the devil and he will flee from us” James 4:7.
God has graciously given us access to great power through His Word spoken out in prayers to Him. I’m thankful to Him for providing exactly what I need to survive and thrive in this world.
