Prayer 2021 - November 22 - Using Your Prayers Like a Sniper Uses a Bullet - pt 3

Scripture For Today:

1 Peter 3:7

“Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.”

Using Your Prayers Like A Sniper Uses a Bullet pt 3

We have been talking these past few days about “Using your prayers like a sniper uses a bullet.” 

I want you to notice a common element in everything I’ve been sharing with you about getting your prayers answered and answered quickly… YOUR WORDS.

For almost the past month or month and a half, I’ve been focusing on YOUR WORDS.  And your words need to match GOD’s WORD.  

If you are saying things other than what is in God’s Word, you are walking in unbelief – not Faith. If you are not walking in Faith, then you cannot tell the devil to do anything – because he KNOWS you don’t believe what you are saying!

If you are walking by Faith and not by sight, then you are walking IN Faith. You are confessing what the Word says. You are denying the “facts” you see in the natural and aligning your words with what the Word says the end result will be.

Have you ever had an argument with someone and you are trying to lay out the “facts” to them, but they don’t want to hear it? What usually happens?

You throw up your hands and walk away. Right?

Now, picture the devil arguing with you about receiving your prayers as being answered. You are not accepting his “facts.” You are denying his “facts.” He is trying to convince you these facts are the truth concerning your situation.

But when you have SCRIPTURE to stand on, you can remind him what the Word of God says!

You start quoting the TRUTH and not the “facts.” You start telling HIM what the end result is going to be. You start FIRING OFF your prayers like that and I can guarantee that he will not stay around you but will FLEE.

That’s what the Word says, right? Resist the devil and he will flee.

Well, you can’t resist him with YOUR words!  Your words are firing blanks at the enemy! He will sit there all day and tell you what a fool you are. And eventually, you’ll start to believe it!

But, when you start using the Word of God and start firing off scripture after scripture that SAYS what you are believing… those Words are like bullets being fired directly at the devil or demon. 

What does the Word say in Ephesians 6:10-17?

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

When you take a stand like that, I guarantee you the devil will flee.  Guaranteed!

We’ll take it up there again tomorrow because I want to show you something from these verses that will bless you immensely. Amen!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
