How effective is your prayer life? Do you wish it could be more effective?
I'll share two keys with you today how to increase the power that you have to bring to bear concerning your destiny and loved ones.
The first key is you must have a prayer life! Prayer is about a relationship with our heavenly Father with communication flowing back and forth. He desired relationship with you so much that He sent His son Jesus to die for you and I on the cross so that the sin that separates us might be removed. He desires relationship. He desires to share with you and I the secrets of His heart (Dan 2:28). What was Daniel's key? He met with the Lord to speak with him 3 times a day.
Mass defines combat power. The Church is also likened unto the army of the Lord and armies exist to project power to enforce God's will.
John 15:7-8 - If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. NKJV
The first key is illustrated in the word "abide." It means to stay in a place of relationship and expectancy. Love is the primary motivator that begins with desire, leads to discipline then turns into delight.
The second key (power of agreement or principle of mass) requires wisdom and discipline. In my book "Developing Apostolic Strategy" I address 5 key elements of increasing power through the principle of mass. These five elements are:
This highlights the beauty of the strategy God gave in and through CONECT (Christian Outreach Network Establishing Church-wide Teamwork) which empowers a family, a local church and a city to build the wall of prayer family by family. They key to applying this principle within a family, local church or even a city or beyond highlights the great need for not only communication with God but also one another.
Communication is Critical to Increasing Your Ability to Apply the Power of Agreement
The key to mass is the principle of communication. Without the ability to communicate with God and one another power is greatly reduced. Nehemiah discovered that when he built the wall of prayer in Nehemiah 4. He set a leader named Hannaniah in charge of the citadel. He managed the watch and facilitated the flow of watchman reports around the city. Nehemiah kept a trumpeter with him which he would use to assemble the people so they could fight together where ever the enemy attacked (Neh.4:18-20).
