Warfare And Deliverance
Most Christians spend little to no time praying each week. Why is this? Perhaps because we don’t see the power that prayer has to change things. But take a serious look at Paul’s words from 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, and your prayer life should come into focus:
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Or consider this passage in 1 John 5:14-15:
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
Our conscious contact with God is improved and we share our inner lives with him as we pray, meditate, and worship. We come to know God as we seek the spiritual foundation for prayer, which is committing our lives to God.
We can face the challenges and difficulties in our life with the help of prayer as it equips us well, connects us with the real world, and stops us from living a life of unreality. We examine our current position that includes the problems in our lives through prayers. We seek to know how we got into such a situation and how we can change its dynamics.
If God was to grant all that we can achieve through our human ability to obtain and attain, then our true purpose would be lost and we would be bearing fruits for our inactions.
We solve our problems by carefully envisioning them, explaining them, and churning out a solution as we seek help from God through our prayers. We can only stretch our abilities to its extreme; after that, we are entitled to ask God to bring about the result and he makes it happen for us.
The Academy of Spiritual Warfare and Deliverance at the House of Mercy Christian Assembly looks to help you experience the bounties of a triumphant life by encouraging you to act on spiritual guidance, which improves our faith and makes our prayers significant.
strengthen your faith through prayer and deliverance
It isn’t that God is busy, hasn’t heard, or doesn’t care if he hasn’t answered our prayers. Rather, it signifies some lacking on our part. It might be because we haven’t completely exhausted our human capabilities; thus, it would be harmful to us to receive what we seek at this time and rest assures that God answers every single prayer.
“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles,” Psalm 34:17
At HMCA, we look to help you act on God’s will through prayer and deliverance. The Academy of Prayer and Deliverance is specifically for those who feel inspired to become a minister of Christ.
The purpose of this program is to teach students who, upon graduation, can effectively govern and grow deliverance, healing, and prophetic ministries. The program comprises of ministry instruction, hands-on training, and biblical study in a classroom environment.
AMP UP YOUR LIFE
So here are some concrete steps you can take to begin to make prayer a bigger priority in your ministry:
How are you doing? Are you modeling the commitment to prayer that you desire to see in your “disciples”—your students and adult volunteers?
We’re not just talking about those brief introductory or closing prayers that most of us fold into our meeting outline. We’re talking here about praying with them like Jesus prayed. Model with them what prayer should look like. Show them how to make praying for their unreached friends a consistent and urgent plea before the throne of God.
If you need more structure to stay accountable, consider starting a prayer journal and invite your leaders and students to do the same. HMCA Spiritual Warfare and Deliverance Academy can help you develop a more consistent prayer life as well as give you a way to see God’s answers to your prayers – and that’s always exciting. Begin to put prayer as the top priority in your life and in your ministry. It is absolutely foundational for a Spiritual Warfare-focused ministry! Like Phillip Yancey says in his book Prayer, “Keep it honest. Keep it simple. Keep it up.”
