“…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available – dynamic in its working.” James 5:16 AMP
Prayer allows the Holy Spirit to make the Word of God a reality in your heart. Your spirit will become quickened to God’s Word, and you will begin to think like God thinks and talk like He talks. You will find yourself poring (to be absorbed in the reading or study) over His Word – hungering for more and more. The Father rewards those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
JESUS SPOKE THE WORD OF GOD AGAINST THE ENEMY
Jesus defeated Satan in the wilderness by saying three (3) words three (3) times. “It is written… It is written… It is written.” Every proposal Satan made to our Lord was met with the Word of God.
4:2 And after going without food for forty days and forty nights, he was in need of it.
4:6 If you are the Son of God, let yourself go down; for it is in the Writings, He will give his angels care over you; and, In their hands they will keep you up, so that your foot may not be crushed against a stone.
4:9 And he said to him, All these things will I give you, if you will go down on your face and give me worship.
