Proactive prayer, not just reactive prayer, is so important. Praying in the Spirit as well as with our understanding is key also since the spirit knows to pray for thing for which we are unaware.

Awakened to Prayer

Sometimes, only one or two people may hear His call and be available to pray. So, it is important that we do

There have been times when the Lord woke me to pray in the middle of the night and only gave me the name of a nation or a person, and I would pray in the spirit until sensing release, then heard in the news the next day something related to that for which I prayed.

The enemy say, “Oh, little ole you can’t effect the course of nations or touch a person around the world.” But the enemy lies. Sometimes, only one or two people may hear His call and be available to pray. So, it is important that we do. It only takes one person’s prayer, any believing person, for God’s intervention.

You are a house of prayer

My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations” (Isaiah 56:7). In the New Covenant, we are His house. He dwells within us.

We can all do that, and it’s a mighty tool in the hands of the Lord. But we must learn to be sensitive to be obedient to the Lord’s voice, in faith saying yes, that must be you Lord, when woken or prompted, and then willing. It may be a bit of a sacrifice to lose some sleep, or to stop what we are doing to pray, but it is very rewarding.

And just you, cooperating with the Holy Spirit, can make an enormous difference in the world.
