The greatest and most devious, fought for conspiracy of hell against you, is to keep you out of your prayer closet at any cost.
If he, Satan, can keep us prayer-less, he keeps us powerless! Then the enemy can gain a foothold and spiritual ground in our lives, to bring chaos and confusion.
We believers have the blood-bought rights of our salvation, weaponry, armor and our inheritance, and we have a hotline to Heaven! Praying in The Holy Ghost.
The First Rule to remember in Prayer Warfare: Your flesh is not your friend — it’s your enemy. Your flesh will agree with the devil and will fight against your own soul!
In the beginning stages of Prayer Warfare, the devil will strongly use slumber and sleep to lull you into laziness, slothful complacency and apathy! Even when you are wide awake and begin to Pray, you will become so sleepy!
Take authority over it and press in! Then, he uses people to interfere and fight Prayer. Satan uses whomever and whatever he can to steal your valuable time in Prayer!
This is his greatest offensive play and he uses it everyday. Arm yourself with that, and be equipped with this understanding that by interfering, he will try to keep us out of Prayer with everything he has in his arsenal.
He knows, if you find out who you are, and what you’ve got and what is available to you…. he knows he will lose ground in your life and in everyone you influence in your life, and your life to come!
If this Message brings a stirring in you to righteous indignation against the devil, it is supposed to. And it is time.
This is your Word. Do you want total Victory in Christ? Then you need to actively take your flesh captive and bring it under subjection and make it obey you.
Take the reins back. Take the control back to your body and using your mouth and words to command your spirit and decree a Press!
Yes, decree a Press! Yes, it is time to press into God in a sanctified (set apart) Prayer and consecration and tell that devil to get out of your life and family! Tell that devil to go.
Hear the sound of the trumpets and Decree, Declare, and Establish Victory in the Name of Jesus. Hallelujah, and Amen and Amen.
“Put to death, therefore, the components of your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry.” Colossians 3:5 NKJV.
“But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” 1 Corinthians 9:7 NKJV.

“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore, I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NKJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
