Prayer To Understand The Word Of God
Do You Understand the Power of Prayer Revelation?
The Power of Prayer through Spiritual Warfare Prayer
Healing and Deliverance Prayers
“Ye are complete in Him which is the head of ALL principality and power” (Col.2:10).
“Behold, I give you power (authority) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
“Behold, they shall surely gather together but not by me. Whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me.”
The Power of Prayer Releases Bombs
Christian spiritual warfare prayer are bombs against the enemies camp. Wake up church and called out ones.
It is time to go to WAR and TAKE BACK our Cities and Nations by Proclaiming the Word of God over your homes, cities and nations.
We must be his mouthpiece so that his ministry will continue to go forth in healing the broken hearted, in setting captives free, in recovering the site to the blind, and setting at liberty those who are oppressed. Luke 4:18.
The Power of Prayer and Authority
We were given the power of prayer through the Lord’s authority. When you gave your life to the Lord, you were assigned angels and you became part of the army of God.
At the same time, you are now an enemy of Satan and Satan and his demonic agents are assigned to you to stop you. As I said earlier what we say – blessings or curses effect the invisible world to the physical world. Just think if we prayed as warriors with authority.Do you want anointing in your life to preach the gospel, heal the sick, casting out demons, discernment, etc.?
You are dangerous and Satan’s agents and to satan’s invisible kingdom and they wants to stop you and remind you of your your past hurts, failures. They will try to get you to live in rejection to be stuck in the past. Satan knows the power of spiritual warfare prayer.
The Power of Prayer What Happens In the Spiritual Realm Revelation
Our sins effect the land and the invisible realm around us. If blood shed through sacrifices, abortions, then the heavens rock. Jer.
23:29 “Is not my word as a fire? saith the LORD; and a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Pray with the Word of God (1) washes water, (2) cleanses and (3) sanctifies. There is power in the Word of God. Jesus calmed the winds and the seas of Galilee.
Now the Lord is saying to us to proclaim His Word, it cleanses and sanctify His people. At the same time, it also torments demons.
Because of sin, our land could be covered under the blanket of darkness. Demonic spirits and human agents that astral project are able to reflesh their spirits in the mist in the air in the blanket of darkness.
When you reach intense spiritual warfare prayer, something happens in the spiritual heavenly realm. When a Christian walks in holiness, prayers have breakthrough opening heavens with great anointing and authority.
Christians should realize that when the name of Jesus is pronounced, what comes their mouth is fire. When a Christian stands on the authority given him by Christ and gives a command in Jesus Name, fire pours his mouth and any demon controlling the circumstances must obey.
Jesus is alive to see to it that every word of His comes to pass. The power of His Word and the power of prayer.Our prayers are heard from God and move the hand of God. All prayers appear smoke that is rising toward heaven. The tabernacle of Moses had a table of incense with constant smoke representing prayer reaching heaven. There are three types of prayers:
1) Some prayers appear smoke that drifts along and vanishes in the air. These prayers come from people who have sin in their lives that they are not willing to deal with. It is time to be Holy and walk in Holiness of the Lord.
2) Another type of spiritual warfare prayer is also smoke. It rises upward until it reaches the rock; it cannot break through the rock. These prayers usually come from people who try to purify themselves, but who lack faith as they pray. We need radical faith and truth the Lord in all things.
3) The third type of spiritual warfare prayer is smoke that is filled with fire. As it rises upward, it is so hot that when it reaches the rock, the rock begins to melt wax. Our prayers pierces the rock and goes through.
And as you continue to pray fervent, the prayers ignite into flames. Their prayers become so powerful that they pierce through the rock. The demons know when your prayers are being ignited and will try to stop you.
Let my prayer be set forth as incense before You, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Psalm 141: 2
How do demons stop you praying?:
Distract that person from prayer. Many times Christians yield to these distractions. Demons know the power of prayer. They project thoughts that feel as your own to do something or call someone or check your computer for messages.
When in intense spiritual warfare prayer, the telephone rings and you think you can go answer it and then come back and continue praying. However, when you return, you go back to the beginning. Other distractions, may touch your body, bringing pain somewhere.
They may make you hungry, causing you to want to go to the kitchen to prepare something to eat. When you pray spiritual warfare prayer, don’t stop at all cost.
Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly] 1 Thessalonians 5: 17
Know the Tactics of the Enemy
Know the tactics so that your prayer will pierce through the rock to heaven opening up the heavens to God. If the people persist in this kind of prayer and allow themselves to be inspired in the spirit and to keep going, something happens in the spirit.
The fire touches that rock, and it melts. A man, who used to astral project to destroy churches but got saved, said when we pray fervent prayers the melting begins. It is so hot that no demon spirit can stand it. They all flee.
When you pray the Word of God fervently, an opening in the spiritual realm what I call open heaven occurs.

Top 7 Bible Verses About Answered Prayer
Here are my top seven Bible verses about prayer or praying.
John 15:7 “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”
What does Jesus mean by saying we must abide in Him and only then may we ask whatever we wish? We know enough of the Bible to understand that we must pray according to the will of God. The Greek word used for “abide” is “menō” and this means “to remain” or stay with.
The Apostle John wrote that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14) or “tabernacled with us” (Greek “skēnoō”) which reminds me of the tent in the wilderness where God dwelt among His people in the tabernacle.It’s where we get the word “adobe” or “home” or “dwelling” from and the word adobe means “a brick of mud and stray.” These materials closely resemble those used by the Israelites under their Egyptian bondage where they made bricks, but later without straw provided.
The major point is if we abide in Jesus’ words, and that means in the gospels where His words are recorded, but no less than the whole Word of God, from Genesis to Revelation, we can ask whatever we wish that is also according to God’s will.
First John 5:14-15 “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”
The Apostle John seemed confident that God would answer our prayers but he added that “if we ask anything according to his will he hears us,” meaning that we can pray for things but if they’re not a part of God’s will, He won’t answer that. In the strictest sense, He will answer it with a “No” or “not yet” or “that’s not my will” so finding out God’s will can help us to receive answered prayer and God’s will is revealed in the Bible. To know God’s will we must know God’s Word.
Psalm 66:19 “But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.”
The psalmist was completely sure that not only did God listen to his prayer but that He attended to the voice of his prayer, meaning that God answered it. How can we be the psalmist and believe that “truly God has listened?” Again, we must know the will of God in order to pray for His will to be done and to find the will of God you must find a Bible.
1st Samuel 1:27 “I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.”
Hannah was so desperate for a child that she would often go to “the doorpost of the temple of the Lord” (1st Sam 1:9b) for she “was deeply distressed and prayed to the Lord and wept bitterly.
And she vowed a vow and said, “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall touch his head” (1st Sam 1:10-11).
Hannah was childless and that was a sign of shame in Israel so imagine Hannah’s joy when she could finally say “prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him” (1st Sam 1:27).
Psalm 118:21 “I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.”
I heard of a man several years ago who was giving thanks for his prayers being answered but the interesting thing was, he gave thanks to God for the answered prayer for the ones that he had just prayed! I thought, how could he know that God had answered them already? Didn’t he have to wait to see how it turned out first? No, because even though this man’s answer was answered immediately received, even with no evidence of it, he understood it could be “No,” “Not yet,” or “I’ve got something better for you.” He trusted the Lord enough to know that God’s “No” is always best for us and it usually so we won’t hurt ourselves or others. No good father would give their child whatever they wanted; a knife for example.
Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
Jesus taught us to be the man I just wrote about, as far as having believed that he received an answer already.
Jesus doesn’t tell us how long it will take to receive whatever we were praying for but that you simply have to believe it’s been answered.
This is assuming, as we have written before, that this prayer is according to the perfect will of God. Prayer must be for the will of God which means it must for the glory of God.
Psalm 116:1 “I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.”
Whether you are in great need or in great suffering, cry out to Him. The psalmist would have believed what Jesus taught in Mark 11. He must have had the confidence of the Apostle John (1st John 4:5).
And the psalmist must have believed my friend did (in the second paragraph above). They all knew that God heard them.
They all knew that God had already answered them, so that kind of attentiveness and benevolence that the Father displayed caused them “love the Lord” a child his father and so it should make us do the same.
Jesus tells all of us to “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matt 7:7). A lot of Christians are not that different from the psalmist because they can both say, “The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer” (Psalm 6:9).
The Apostle John was completely confident about answered prayer (1st John 5:14-15) so do “not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Phil 4:6).
Today, many nations are in trouble but God’s promise to Solomon is the same to any nation or people that “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2nd Chron 7:1) however if you aren’t abiding in Jesus’ words on a daily basis, His Word is not abiding in you every day (John 15:1-11).

I bow to you, I prostrate my body, I beg you to be gracious worshipful Lord; as a father to a son, a friend to a friend, a lover to a beloved,
O God, bear with me.
He is the Compassionate, the All-Bountiful! O God, my God! Thou seest me, Thou knowest me; Thou art my Haven and my Refuge. None have I sought nor any will I seek save Thee; no path have I trodden nor any will I tread but the path of Thy love.
In the darksome night of despair, my eye turneth expectant and full of hope to the morn of Thy boundless favor and at the hour of dawn my drooping soul is refreshed an strengthened in remembrance of Thy beauty and perfection.
He whom the grace of Thy mercy aideth, though he be but a drop, shall become the boundless ocean, and the merest atom which the outpouring of Thy loving-kindness assisteth,
shall shine even as the radiant star.
Shelter under Thy protection, O Thou Spirit of purity, Thou Whom art the All-Bountiful Provider, this enthralled, enkindled servant of Thine. Aid him in this world of being to remain steadfast and firm in Thy love and grant that this broken-winged bird attain a refuge and shelter in Thy divine nest
that abideth upon the celestial tree.

53. I AM Lord’s Prayer
- Why does Mother Mary's scriptural rosary contain a different version of the Lord's Prayer?
- How is your concept of the Lord's Prayer revolutionary?
- What is the I AM Lord's Prayer?
- Don't you think that a lot of people will see this as the ultimate ego trip?
- Why is this the true mystic's prayer?
First of all, let's take the Lord's Prayer as it is recorded in the Book of Matthew. Jesus counsels us that we ought not to use “vain repetitions as the heathen” but to pray “after this manner” and then he gives the Lord's Prayer.
Students of the ascended masters' teachings understand the word of God through Isaiah: “Concerning the work of my hands, command ye me.” They see that Jesus and many of the saints spoke with the authority of God—God the Father, who lives within the Son and without whom the Son can do nothing.
The Lord's Prayer is not the prayer of a sinner groveling on the ground an animal before a tyrannical or whimsical God, but it is the prayer of the Son to the Father, and it is a command. Every verse of the Lord's Prayer is actually a command that we give by the authority of the Christ within us to the flame of God, the I AM THAT I AM, the source of our energy and life.
“Our Father who art in heaven…” We address him, confident that he hears us. “Hallowed be thy name.” This is a command. We are commanding God's energy that is in heaven to be manifest on earth.And our first desire is that the name of God, I AM THAT I AM, be sacred on earth. We must pray this prayer because God has given us the authority for the earth.
He said, “Take dominion over the earth,” and he gave us free will and an energy resource to do so.
The next command is “Thy kingdom come.” We are commanding it because it is the will of God and because he has given us the authority to pray in this manner. When Jesus told us to pray “after this manner,” he meant we must confirm by the Science of the Spoken Word God's will on earth as it is in heaven.
The next command we give is “Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.” And then: “Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.”
The more we read and understand this matrix of the Son commanding the flame, the essence, the energy of God to do the Father's will on earth, the more we understand our role as the instruments of the Great Alchemist, of God himself.
God desires to move in manifestation on earth but he cannot do so unless we open the valve of consciousness, the valve of the heart and the valve of the sacred centers and let his energy flow. We do this by the command.
The final command is “And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.” Then follows: “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.”
The upper room teaching of the Science of the Spoken Word
It is my understanding that Jesus taught the disciples the Science of the Spoken Word in the Upper Room, in the Essene community and at the home of Mary, Martha and Lazarus in Bethany. He taught that the command of God is reflected in the Son by the voice of the Son giving affirmation of God's being.
How many people have ever thought of the Lord's Prayer as our command to God, literally our demand upon the cosmos, upon the energy of cosmos to coalesce on earth in this supreme matrix of our Father's will?
Well, as an ex-fundamentalist Christian, I have to tell you that it is a revolutionary concept. Wouldn't you agree?
Indeed it is. In fact, it is earth shattering. It's discovering the mathematical formula for the splitting of the atom. All of a sudden we realize that we were created by God to be his sons and daughters, that in fact we can say with Christ, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” And we understand that the eternal Christ that is our own identity has always been and will forevermore be.
We understand that the challenge of life on earth is for our own soul to come into alignment with that only begotten Son, that eternal Christos. And to do this we use the ritual of the Science of the Spoken Word. “After this manner therefore pray ye”—marvelous teaching!
The power to become a Son of God
Listen to this teaching from John: “As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” The power to become a Son of God is conveyed to us by the Ascended Master Jesus Christ.
That power could not be conveyed if it were not already inherent within us, within that potential of the threefold flame in the heart.But it requires the igniting by the Son of God Jesus or by Saint Germain or by any one of the ascended masters or avatars of the ages.
The one who has become the Christ incarnate has the power to transfer that flame to us, for we are also intended to become Sons of God.
But what is the I AM Lord's Prayer?
The I AM Lord's Prayer is an advanced form of the Lord's Prayer. Jesus gave the I AM Lord's Prayer to his inner disciples, who had a deeper understanding of the mysteries of God. They understood that God is within the temple and that the affirmation of that God is the highest form of prayer and even the highest form of the command.
We have this prayer today because the Ascended Master Jesus Christ has dictated it to the messenger Mark Prophet. Mother Mary asked to have this prayer included in the daily rosary.
How does it go, Mrs. Prophet?
Bear in mind that the name I AM has the inherent meaning “God in me is.” When we say “I AM THAT I AM” we are affirming God above/God below where we are. This prayer uses the name I AM to amplify God's energy within us:
I AM Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,Hallowed be thy name, I AM.
I AM thy kingdom comeI AM thy will being doneI AM on earth even as I AM in heavenI AM giving this day daily bread to allI AM forgiving all life this day even asI AM also all life forgiving meI AM leading all men away from temptationI AM delivering all men from every evil conditionI AM the kingdomI AM the power and
I AM the glory of God in eternal, immortal manifestation—All this I AM.
Mrs. Prophet, don't you think that a lot of people will see this as the ultimate ego trip?
Precisely. And therein lies the danger. The one who declares that his untransmuted, unredeemed self is one with God is one who blasphemes.
However, the one who has actually felt the Presence of God enter him as the descent of the Holy Ghost and who has that Presence in his temple can unite his energy, his consciousness and his being with that God of very gods who lives within his temple.
He can make his voice one with the voice of God. Indeed, he can become the mouthpiece of God, who is answering the first prayer, which says: “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.” Now he can say, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, I AM,” and he can hear God speaking through him: “I AM thy kingdom come. I AM thy will being done.
I AM on earth even as I AM in heaven.”
This is the tremendous authority of the Trinity within us—God the Father as the one who releases the Law and the decree, God the Son as the wisdom of that decree, and God the Holy Spirit as the action of that decree. This Trinity within us takes over our prayer and instantaneously, simultaneously becomes the answer to the call or the fulfillment of the demand that we place upon life.
And so when we pray and when we understand that we are praying as sons of God, we know that we have the authority to cast out demons, to exorcise evil spirits, to command “Peace, be still!” to the waters.
This is not something that we attribute to man or to the carnal mind or to the lesser self. There is only one power that can act and it is the living God. There is only one God and without him we can do nothing.
It is the Father in us who doeth the work.A part of this great work is the decree itself. The decree sets the energy in motion. It's a fiat, it's a blueprint, it's a matrix of life. And so we say, “I AM giving this day daily bread to all.
I AM forgiving all life this day even as I AM also all life forgiving me.” We are simply saying, “God in me is giving this day daily bread to all. God in me is forgiving all life this day even as God is all life forgiving me.
This constant affirmation of oneness with the one God is the only means to salvation. And the affirmation itself is the ritual through the Science of the Spoken Word whereby we do inherit immortality.
It is the true mystic's prayer, isn't it?
Indeed it is and it must be correctly understood or else it will be misused.
