Weapons for overcoming: prayer

overcome to overcomer

Philippians 4:6 ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’

Turn your worries and cares into prayer.  When we pray, we open the door for God to come into our problems and situations and work on them.

  • John Bunyan said the following: ‘Prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God and a scourge for satan.
  • Corrie Ten Boom, who survived the holocaust said the following: ‘Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees.’
  • Arthur Hopkins: Our prayer and God’s mercy are like two buckets in a well; while one ascends, the other descends.

Psalm 107:28-30 ‘Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.’
