The Reality of Praying

I only follow the voice and command of my Master.
While being called to fight,
My eyes are on the Master. Not myself. Not other people.

No rules. No rituals.
With a devoted heart. With an obedient mind. Abide in His words.

Repent for my sins. Being equipped with divine armor.
Claim the promises. Fight against the devil.

Being led by the Holy Spirit.
Preach the Truth. Proclaim the Promises.
Intercede for the saints, the lost and the Kingdom of God.

Ask and receive by given faith.
With expectation—may God’s will be done on the person I intercede.
Then, release the power from on High.
As the result, God’s glory shall be revealed and my joy shall be made full.

Don’t wait for the time feeling right.
Don’t take in the lies from old self or devil, but push them away.

Put God in front of me.
Worship God alone.

Open my mouth.
Let God speak through my lips.
And the stream of living water will flow out within me, the living fountain of life.

God’s word never return void.
But shall accomplish His purpose and succeed in the thing He sent it for.

This is the victory God commands for each prayer warrior.
