#144 Holy Pleadings and Argument Before God

Dr. Wesley L. DuewelThere is a sense in which prevailing with God can take the form of holy reasoning—yes, even presenting holy arguments before God.

   The Bible at times uses court terms for our face-to-face meeting with God. "Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD" (Isa. 1:18). (Google image, Praying hands with Bible).

#143 God's Word Arms with Faith for Prayer Warfare (4-6)

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: 4. Faith is your shield in spiritual warfare (Eph. 6:16). But it is also a weapon of offensive warfare. 

   Faith feeds upon God's Word and especially upon God's promises until you are strengthened and full of zeal to advance for God. (Google image, Basics to prayer)

   Faith is the essential and inseparable spirit and power of prevailing prayer. We have discussed the dynamic of faith in chapter 13. (The Dynamic of Faith)

#142 The Militant Use of the Word (1-3)

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: God's word has an essential role in all aspects of your prayer life. Your communion with God will be based on and include much communion through the word.

   Your praise must of necessity make much use of Scripture as you praise the Lord. Whatever time you spend on your devotional life, surely about half will be spent reading and feeding on God's Word. (Google image, God's Word is food for the soul)

#141 The Militant Use of the Name

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: There are many militant uses of the name of Jesus. This list is only suggestive. You will no doubt recall other important ways that the Holy Spirit has led you to use it to win victories for Christ.

   In the light of the role of the name, use the name again and again to the glory of God and to the advancement of His kingdom. (Google image, Jesus)

Protect Your Sabbath Rest (Excellent!)

Lisa Morrone- "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. 

   On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.

#140 The Role of the Name

Dr. Wesley L. Duewel: 1. The name of Jesus gives instant access to God's throne. The authority of the name unlocks heaven's door. Its fragrance identifies and gives acceptance to God.

   You have no right of access except through the name of Jesus. You are unworthy, a forgiven rebel, but the name identifies you now as a child of God with full access to God. Six times Jesus referred to our asking in His name. (Google image, Together we pray)
