Sermon Recap

Watch and Pray

This is something a little different. We are changing things up and turning the Sermon Recap into a blog.
 
Most of the time on Tuesday nights, the church has a prayer night. But, there was something on my heart that I felt desperate to share. I started with the question, what does it mean to watch and pray?
 
I had a beautiful revelation. Jesus tried for thousands of years to pull the church to Him, but when they wouldn’t come, He stepped down to them. Just like Adam did for Eve when the devil deceived her. Adam, like Jesus, loved his bride so much he was willing to step down and stand between her and God. So, if God killed Eve, He would have to kill Adam also. Adam stepped down to protect Eve.
 
God has called you to a protector of your household. One of the ways we protect our households is to pray. I see prayer warriors as real soldiers. I see moms, daddies, and teenagers with the spirit of prayer, driving demons back and praying healing and conviction down.
 
I feel like screaming out to America to warn them that there’s a darkness on this world right now. We need to pray, but that’s not enough. We need to watch.
 
To watch means to keep awake. So, we need to keep awake and tell the devil he has no right on our grounds. We are children of God. We need to wake up and let the devil know he can’t have anything of ours, not our children, not our homes, not anything. We cant back into a corner and let Hell take over. We are the light of the world, and this is our season to shine.
 
It’s time to put your weapons on and stand up. Stand and let satan know that he won’t take over as long as we can still watch and pray and stand in the gap. If we don’t stand up and teach our children right then what’s going to be happening a few generations from now?
 
Someone has to stand and fight. Someone must pray and watch. Will you heed the call?

    This is so true we as children of God have got to stand up for what we believe in and who we believe which is Jesus Christ.
    The devil will come at us and tempt us and try us with so many different things but as long as we stand on Gods word, watch and.
    Pray then the devil can’t defeat us,We have the victory.
