Critical areas of our culture need you—your strength, your wisdom, and your effectual praying. The fervent prayer of righteous men is effectual, making much explosive power available! The Kingdom of God advances as a result of what, how, and whether you pray. Personally, too, if something must change concerning you, your family, your ministry, or business—pray! Your power to advance is your prayer.
As you pray, forgive anyone or anything you hold responsible for the situation at hand. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that those you forgive become close friends, nor do you have to agree with the way they think or live. Forgiveness reverses wrong forces that are released by un-forgiveness. Those forces are stopped! Forgiving others draws a line of protection between you and anything that’s not right; forgiveness means you disconnect from the negative influences involved.
So, stop right now. Pull aside. Take time to say aloud what you know to be God’s will in the matter. Open your heart. Draw from your understanding of the Word and say aloud your desire to align with it—His Word is His will. Thank God for His answer and the privilege of prayer. Now, you are ready for the next assignment that requires your prayers. The Kingdom advances, and it seems that, literally, heaven comes down when you pray!
