God is not moved by emotions or tears, he is moved by your faith, prayers and confidence in his word. Wake up to your God given authority. God expect his children to be in constant communication with heaven.Jesus knew that we would experience storms of life so that’s why he admonished us to pray. It all depends on your prayer life. It is your prayer life that determines the outcome; victory or disappointment. The reason you are lazy in your prayer life is because you are comfortable. 

⁃ We pray to exert a restraining order against every satanic devices working contrary to God’s agenda.

⁃ We pray so all the forces of hell bow before us. 

⁃ We pray to stop the fear of God to the heat of those planning our destruction. 

⁃ We pray so that believing souls know that we serve a living God.

⁃ We pray to defile the laws of men against our beliefs.

⁃ We pray to defile the gods of this world. 

⁃ We pray to maintain daily victory

⁃ We pray to showcase the superior power against the inferior 

⁃ We pray for god to defeat the words and words of elites over our lives.

⁃ We pray to put God in remembrance of his promises.

⁃ We pray in order for God to hasten to perform his works in our lives.

- We pray to experience the fire of the holy ghost in all aspects of our life.  

- We pray to invoke the supreme power of God to overturn and overthrow the laws of the world.

- We pray to put our assigned angels on notice about kingdom mandate. 

We should pray with a serious intention to see change. We should pray to seriously place a demand to stop or change something. It takes prayer for the prophetic declarations on our life to come to fruition.,Until you cry a cry of desperation God will not render help. Our open mouth renders the miracle. Prayer suspends and releases natural laws. 

You don’t speak to the devil when your knees have not been burnt at the prayer alter.
