It is my sincere desire that all who read them and hear them may be lifted up to a higher relationship with God.

The power of continuous prayer,
Sunday April 08, 2007
This morning, I want to continue from where I left off last week.
We’ve been talking about prayer, and what it can do for you.
Turn your Bibles if you will, to Matthew the 18th chapter the 19th verse and we are going to read how two people that are in agreement can do more than many that are not in agreement.
Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by my father in heaven.
Paul and Silas demonstrated the power of two as they sang in the jail at Philippi.
In response, God sent angels to shake the foundations of that jail.
Paul and Silas walked out of the jail with the keys in one hand and the converts in the other.
They knew the power of two.
There are two witnesses in Revelation 11 chapter the third verse, Enoch and Elijah.
They have the power to turn the water into blood.
They have the power to call the fire from heaven.
They have the power to call plagues and draught to cover the earth.
The Antichrist and all of the earth will hate them.
But they have that supernatural power because they are two people in agreement.
Jesus sent His disciples out two by two.
He gave them the authority to bind and loose things on this earth, and if they did so, this would be honored in heaven through the power of two.
21 For when a strong man like Satan is fully armed and guards his palace, his possessions are safe—
22 until someone even stronger attacks and overpowers him, strips him of his weapons, and carries off his belongings.
This scripture says that there is a strong man, satan, whose object is to attack you.
That strongman will attack your marriage, your health, your finances, your peace of mind, and your children, seeking to rob, to kill, and to destroy.
God has given you an answer to satan’s power.
That answer is to bind him was supernatural prayer, when you and another believer come into agreement.
29 For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger—someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house.
How much power can people in agreement have?
The answer: the power of life and death.
During the brutal reign of Joseph Stalin, who murdered 30 million Russians and bought godless communism to Russia, Stalin, let it be known that he planned to murder the Jews of Russia.
When the believers in England heard this report, they committed themselves to fasting and prayer for the Jews of Russia.
Praying in the spirit, they found the Demonic forces that drove Joseph Stalin.
Three weeks later, Joseph Stalin had a brain hemorrhage.
16 gifted brain surgeons worked on him for eight hours, and still Joseph Stalin stepped into eternity,
on March 5, 1953, to meet the son of God, a Jewish rabbi from Bethlehem.
Jesus said to his church, what ever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.
The message is very clear.
The initiative rests with you, not God!
Stop asking, when is God going to do something about my situation?
God has placed the responsibility of taking action squarely on your shoulders.
