The Power of Prayer Points
Theme: It Doesn’t Take All That… Does It?
“Understanding the Magnitude of the Warfare” by Audrey Lamb
If you had asked me a few months ago if using “prayer points” was an effective tool for waging spiritual warfare, I would have said “I don’t know; I am not sure”.
That would have been before experiencing a few major attacks from the enemy which definitely sent me a clear message that he was determined to wipe me out and anything connected to me.
If any of you have ever experienced spiritual warfare where you had to fight on more than one front (battlefield), then you can understand what I am talking about. The enemy’s job is to wear out the saints. The number one way to do that is to have you fighting on so many “fronts” that you just get tired and give up.
However, God did not wire me that way. What he (the enemy) actually did was to get my attention and make me start asking the question, “Why was I experiencing so many attacks in my personal life and ministry?”
This is how I happened to come upon Dr. Stella’s books, “When Your Levee Breaks” and “Sustained Fire”. Dr. Stella’s books are definitely not for the person still bordering on “playing with the devil and hoping he will just go away and leave you alone”. No, they are for the person who knows that they are involved in spiritual warfare and there will only be one man standing at the end of the battle.
It is true, that the war has been won by Jesus Christ. He definitely did spoil principalities and powers. But the enemy is not a lawful opponent. He knows he has lost the war but he will continue to try to destroy you until you enforce all that Jesus accomplished for you on the cross and through his resurrection.
The enemy is like a “squatter” in your life. That is someone who has occupied a property or territory for so long that they actually believe that they own the property. In the natural there is a term called “squatter’s rights”. The devil thinks he has them in your life. It may be as a result of something you have done or was done on your behalf through your ancestors, but it doesn’t really matter the process to freedom is still the same.
I loved Dr. Stella’s books because they let me know where to begin. I can tell you that my head was reeling from the battle that I was encountering. I needed someone with answers. I didn’t want to hear anything about the fact that the devil can’t oppress us, possess us, or effect us because we are redeemed. I know that my redemption is very real, but the reality of the magnitude of warfare that I was experiencing was real too. I had a problem. I needed to know how to experience the deliverance that Jesus made available to me through His death and resurrection and I needed to begin the process of getting out of me all that was still attractive to and attracting the devil. Jesus said, the prince of this world cometh but he has no power over me because He has nothing in me. That’s it! That’s what Dr. Stella’s books will teach you…. How to get the junk out of your life and how to stand in the midst of your battle until the enemy of your soul releases you and all that belongs to you.
I won’t debate anymore if praying prayer points and long hours of prayer are necessary. They say that a person with an experience is never at the mercy of a person with a theory. I am a woman with an experience. I began to experience victory in my life when I read these books and gained an understanding and a strategy for what was going on in my life. I have more to say about this whole subject. But that will be all for now…. I pray that my brothers and sisters in the Lord will understand the magnitude of the warfare we are engaged in and decide to be aggressive about enforcing the victory that Jesus has won for you. Peace!
