In this last post on the Lord’s prayer let us look at prayer as protection. Prayer is a weapon, it puts a shield between us and the devil. It places us in heaven, before God’s throne. When we pray, things shake. When we pray, God listens. When we pray, stuff moves. When we pray we find safety.
Luke 11:4 And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
There is nothing that can replace prayer. We can hang out with spiritual people, or go to church all we want, but if we do not master the art of daily prayer, our lives will easily get messy. It is in the seeking heart of prayer that God’s will is accomplished. It is in the yearning that we find Him. It is in the asking that He delivers us.
