(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:18-20
(18) Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
(19) And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.
(20) For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
THIS IS THE REASON WHY?
Brethren, as believers, part of our duties and responsibilities in the body of Christ, are to pray for one another, as we would pray for our own selves, stretch out our prayers points, pray, supplicate in the Spirit for humanity, saved or unsaved, especially for believers, who do the will of our Father, for the challenges they face every day when doing the purposes of Jesus Christ: also, remember to pray for the welfare of our cities, neighborhoods, countries, and the peace of this world: together, we will move the heart of our Father to intervene on behalf of humanity, to change negativities of this world around for good; prayer works, let us pray not only for ourselves and love once alone, but for people we do not know or have close relationships with, when the Holy Spirit touches our hearts to pray on behalf of whatever may be reasons why he prompts us to pray, let us not grieve him, but do his will wilfully; as we pray on behalf of others, we receive more anointings powers, our hearts are revived to continue to do his purposes faithfully on earth and Jesus Christ himself prays on our behalves, grants our heart desires.
In the above text, Apostle Paul, encourages believers to put on the whole armour of our Father, be in spirit, pray for one another, beware of the devil, his temptations and gird ourselves with words from the scriptures, why?; when Jesus Christ was tempted by the devil after fasting for forty days and nights in the wilderness and was hungry; he used words of our Father as spiritual weapons to overcome the enemy temptations; case in point, the devil tempted Jesus, said unto him; If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. Jesus answered him, "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.", refer to Matthew 4:3-4; again, the devil said to Jesus, "If thou be the son of God, cast thyself down:... Jesus answered him; "It is written again, Thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God." refer to Matthew 4:6-7; again, for the third time, the devil said to Jesus; "All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me."; Jesus said unto the devil, "Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shall thou serve," refer to Matthew 4:9-10; however, the question is, if Jesus Christ did not read, study the scriptures, when the devil tempted him, these three times, what would have been his weapon of warfare to counteract the enemy's temptations?; this is a point to ponder on!
This world is built up upon give, receive concept, whatsoever goes through our hands in forms of blessings or curses upon others; sooner or later, will surely come back into our lives, it is all about handiworks and matters of our hearts; therefore, if we wish other people well, it will be well with our souls, likewise, if we do evil works against others, evil will surely come back to hunt our lives; therefore, there are consequences for every action taken by humanity under the Sun; let us serve Jesus Christ wholeheartedly, as we serve others; love one another as ourselves, never wish or think evil against one another, rather, pray for one another's welfare, receive blessings from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.
Dearly beloved, Apostle Paul encourages believers to pray for one another, that they may be united in the spirit, that the Holy Spirit anointings, emporwerments may flow freely into their hearts, to boldly preach the gospel truth, without heresies or timidness; for, that is the reason why, him, Paul was made a representative but held up in bondage, to learn how to open up his mouth, preach the gospel boldly, in ways he ought to preach it, without fear of foes; therefore, as believers, called to preach the gospel, let us not hold back what the Spirit is saying to the churches, but as we receive his words, let us speak up boldly, truthfully, allow him to use us mightily for his glory forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
