OVERCOMING THE DARKNESS THROUGH PRAYER

IMG_9140
 “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.“ Ephesians 6:12

What is happening today in our country is a spiritual battle against the powers and rulers of darkness. In these battles it sometimes appears that the situation is as bad or worse than before we began to war. It may seem our prayers are not being effective. It may even appear that the enemy is the one who is advancing and pushing back the light rather than the other way around. But it is during these times, when it seems as if darkness is prevailing, that we need to have strength and faith. 

The darkest hour is just before the dawn. This is not only true naturally but spiritually as well. 
 
When we study the visitations of the past, God visited during very dark times when His people prayed and cried out to Him.

When our Lord and Savior was hanging on the cross dying for our sins, it seemed as though the wicked had won. They were rejoicing in their victory over Christ and His followers. What darkness, and agony of heart, mind, and soul for Christ’s disciples! But not only were they three days away from the greatest victory ever known to man, but they were also standing on the threshold of the greatest revival ever!

To be sure we are in a time of darkness, but let us all join in unity of prayer and push back the darkness. Let us not grow weary but let us strengthen ourselves in the power of God’s might and  put our hope and trust in Him who created all things and is well able to defeat the powers of darkness that seem victorious at the moment. 

When darkness seems to be prevailing, it is truly the time to pray from greater depths of our heart. Let us during these days find the depths of prayer which brings us to the heights of God. Let us pray for light to prevail over darkness. Let us pray for a revival in the hearts of our government officials! 

If God could change Nebuchadnezzar’s heart and the heart of King Manassas, one of the most wicked kings of Israel, He can change the hearts of any of those in our government. 

God has proven that the prayers of His people will prevail! May our hearts and strength be revived; may the church in America be revived! Let our heritage to those who come after us be that we did not succumb to the darkness, but rather that we overcame the darkness.
