And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Ephesians 6:18
Prayer is not just the preparation for the battle; prayer is the battle! The devil can fake anything, but not with prayer. In the Church people can sing, shout dance, and also the devil can do the same, but the devil cannot pray, he has no-one to pray to.
Prayer unlocks the power and the presence of God into any given situation. If we pray, we can be witnesses of the wonder-working power of God.
