 The Serious Call to Prayer

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10

"It must be remembered that there are "Spiritual Wickednesses" at the back of all confusion and discord in the work of God. The servant of Christ must therefore, practically recognize that his/her warfare is with these satanic beings and must be waged on his/her knees. In no other way can any one of us be used by God to deal effectively with troubles in his church. There must be persevering prayer and intercession before the powers of darkness are driven back. How blessed that this great truth lays it open to the weakest of us to prevail in matters which would otherwise be entirely beyond our strength and wisdom."

"It is far more difficult to continue steadfastly in intercession on behalf of those amongst whom we are called to minister than to engage in outward activities for their good. And yet if the powers of darkness, which are blinding the minds of men and hindering the work of God, are not overcome through sacrificial prayer, little, if anything, is really accomplished."

" I have found that waiting upon God and intercession on behalf of others, are really the most vital and effective parts of my service. You will remember the stress placed upon this in the Scripture, and also one or two figures of speech indicating that it is often attended with difficulty and suffering of the powers of darkness, who can only be overcome by perseverance and importunity in prayer." D.E Hoste: A Prince with God, Pg. 110

"When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things." 1 Corinthians 13:11
