The firepower of prayer is calling on God Himself. The emotional, mental, and spiritual forces in play have to be managed and directed in a healthy way. That’s when we need to start opening up to God out of sheer need and pray, Lord Jesus, have mercy on me, or Son of Man, have mercy on me.
It’s hard to sin and pray simultaneously.
God is waiting for you to call out to Him. “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth,” the psalmist assures us. “He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them” (Psalm 145:19).
If we call out to the One waiting to listen, the Enemy doesn’t stand a chance.
