Prayer

Prayer

Why do we pray? Prayer is communication with God, but God has also given us authority through our prayers. We must learn to use the Word of God in our prayers so that we can walk in the authority that God has given us to break off every stronghold that the enemy uses against us. The Word is life. It is so powerful that it alone can bring the changes we want to see in our lives, our country, and our world.
