The Devil's Attack On Prayer
Prayer Takes You There
Prayer Changes You... And the Devil Does Not Like It!
Most people have heard about the act of praying. Many people were trained and taught to pray by mama, daddy, grandma', grandpa' pastor, teacher or friend. When you are young, you simply believe that there is a God, that He loves you and that He hears and answers prayer.
As a young believer, the value of prayer is very high. The youth are not self-sufficient, they are dependent and require help to do almost everything. This helps them believe and, this helps them place a value on both God and prayer. For the young person who believes, prayer can be very important.
However, as a person grows older and less dependent, it seems that the sense of self-sufficiency causes a devaluation of prayer in their lives. That is strange, because if prayer worked when you were little, it will work when you are big. Prayer should never be devalued, because prayer can do permanently what nothing else can do.
Prayer has the power to untangle that conglomeration of discombobulated and unrelated thoughts that continuously run through your mind. Prayer helps you understand others and teaches you how to love those that are unlovable. Prayer brings you into the presence of God. Prayer changes things and more importantly, prayer changes YOU.
No wonder the devil hates prayer.
