The Christ Follower’s Hardest Work. Prayer. What is Prayer?. Communication With God Prayer is request to a personal LORD who answers as He knows best. Effective Prayer.
“Effective Prayer must be a scripturally informed response of persons saved by grace, to the living God who can hear and answer on the basis of Christ’s payment of the penalty which sinners deserved” Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary p. 866
Bringing myself under the control of God’s Holy Spirit is where I need to live. The World, the Flesh, and the Devil all are in opposition to this. It is HARD work to fight the enemies of my soul and rest in the power of God.
He is willing and able to release that same power into our lives. And it pleases him when we yield to His strength. That is how we fight.
