Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! God looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one! Will those who do evil never learn? They eat up my people like bread and wouldn’t think of praying to God. Psalms 53:1-4 NLT
I heard Joyce Meyers say, If there is strength in unity, then it stands to reason that we are powerless when we don't have it. She also said that she believes that demons are assigned to bring strife and disunity in families, organizations, churches, etc. Well, the devil is not stupid. It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that that is where you get the most bang-for-the-buck, in causing disunity. The devil would rather chance having 1000 of his demons put to flight than 10,000, for that is what happens every time we come together – we are 10 times stronger!! In case you missed that, when 2 come together we can put 10,000, 3 can put 100,000, 4 can put 1,000,000 demons to flight! We could keep going, but you get the point!
There is a stronger man than division in the enemy’s pecking order! I always thought that if a house divided could not stand, then division was the top of the pecking order in Satan's kingdom. Proverbs 16:28 says, A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends. Well, if GOSSIP can SEPARATE, then PRAYER can re-unite or restore relationships! From this verse we could also say that a family that prays together – stays together. We know that gossip is the opposite of prayer. Actually, gossip is intercession for the devil! Did you know that when you are gossiping about one of your church members that you are being used by the devil to carry out his will in the earth? If God was looking for an intercessor throughout the Bible (see Ez. 22:30), then don't you think the devil is looking for one too? So PRAYERLESSNESS is a stronger man than DIVISION.
We have to come against the strongman of prayerlessness on this fast, and we have to KEEP HIM OUT by praying together and lifting one another up in our individual prayer times as well. Let’s join together and put that strongman to flight today in the mighty Name of Jesus!
