The Lord warned us to watch and pray, so as not to fall into temptation (Matthew 26:41). This must be done by every Christian on daily basis, especially the one who carries the work of the intercessor. The apostle Paul also tells us the following: “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—” (Eph. 6:18) Here are a few steps of what to do:
- To be watchful to the end (in other words to dedicate a certain time every day for prayer. (Try not to miss regular daily prayer).
- Pray at all times with the Spirit (since Spirit is in capital, it refers to the prayer in tongues.) Try to have a prayer in tongues about 30 minutes a day. When you have a strong urge to pray in tongues, pray, do not procrastinate. “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” (Romans 8:26, NKJV)
- Surround yourself, your family and your property with all kinds of prayers, petitions and supplications from all sorts of schemes of the enemy. In fact, surround yourself with everything you can, for example: health, finances, against fires, accidents, insect stings, destruction, evil people, etc.
- Pray for all the saints, or for your church, brothers and sisters in Christ. This prayer has protective power. Read the article: Church Intercessor.
5. Protect yourself and your family with the name and blood of Jesus Christ.
6. Have the habit of giving thanks and praising the Lord often and for everything. This is an incense that disperses the powers of darkness. Read my article Power of Thanksgiving and Praise.
7. Pray also with Bible verses or Scripture. Read more about this in the article Prayers Based on Scripture.
8. Lead the holy life in observance of the Word of God, and put on the whole armor of God with the Lord’s help. Read Power of the Holy People.
Please share with others for the glory of the Lord!
