Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Proverbs – part 26

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 14:25

Scripture:

Prov. 3:28
Do not say to your neighbor, “Go, and come back, And tomorrow I will give it,” When you have it with you.

(Swedish version: “…, even though you could help at once.”)

Comment:

To be honest, do you sometimes promise a person to pray for him, thinking you will do it later, and then forget all about it? Afterwards you might pray a short prayer, hoping God will hear your prayer anyway, thinking that He is not limited by time.

The enemy is very much aware that your prayer can stop his work. Therefore he tries to hinder you from praying. He doesn’t want to tell you not to pray, so he will use deception to delay your prayer.

If the enemy is successful in making you postpone your prayer, he will then try make you forget about it. He can, for instance, make you think that it is better to pray when you are alone, when you don’t have a lot of people around you. He can also remind you of a lot of things you should do first, before you pray. It all may seem very reasonable, but the main purpose is, to stop your prayer.

Most of the time we can pray at once, even if we have to make the prayer short. Jesus said that it is not because of many words our prayers will be answered.

Matt. 6:7-8
7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

When we pray for people, let’s do it immediately, without delay.
