Apostle Grace Lubega
Isaiah 40:31 (KJV); But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Prayer is a force that increases the momentum of a believer in the spiritual realm. In prayer, a man is quickened from walking to running. In prayer, he is propelled from running to flying.
It is not surprising that many non-praying Christians are stuck both physically and spiritually.
Like our theme scripture reveals, prayer builds strength for motion in the spiritual realm. As inner strength increases, a man walks faster; as it builds up, he runs and as it escalates he flies!
In Hebrews 12:1, the Bible says, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”
The flesh is a weight.
In Galatians 5:17, the scripture explains the effect of this weight when it says, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”
Prayer has the effect of continuously killing the flesh and bringing it into subjection to the Spirit so that a man can walk, run, and fly unhindered. This is why, often the deeper you pray, the lighter you feel.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this knowledge on the power of prayer. My life is a roaring fireplace because I know what prayer does to my spirit. The Bible says that we should be constant in prayer and to pray without ceasing. This is the testimony of my days and the pattern of my relationship with You, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
