" The Prayer Of Break Through"By: Prophetess hilda arredondo “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 In this verse of scripture we are instructed, along with the following seven verses, to put on the whole armour of God for two (2) major reasons. One being, “To stand against the wiles of the devil.” In this life, we are going to have to battle against the strategies, devices, tricks, plans, schemes and the forces of darkness that come to kill, to steal and destroy the Christian. God does not want us outsmarted and destroyed by the devil; therefore, as we put on the armour of God, that armour will protect us in the battles against the principalities, rulers and the powers of darkness. This is very, very important to our spiritual well being. Another reason for wearing the armour is one that is equally as important and many times overlooked or missed by the saints of God. In verse 18 of this same chapter, we find this very important reason. It reads, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplications for all saints.” We are instructed in this verse of scripture to “pray always for all saints.” As I have diligently sought the Lord for God’s prayer direction in this hour the Holy Spirit has spoken to me and I have clearly understood that this is “the hour” that He would want us to “pray for one another” like never before! In order to bring about this final day move of revival, “praying for one another” is imperative! As we “pray for one another” it will release the flow of the oil of the Spirit into the body of Christ needed for this mighty move of God. This action of prayer releases the holy oil of the Spirit and can be compared to the blood flow in the natural body. When the blood flow (life) in the physical body begins to slow down, poor circulation sets in and blood clots (obstructions) begin to form and sometimes total blockages occur, causing the blood flow to cease, resulting in heart attacks. In some cases, when those body parts are without the life flow of the blood for a long time, they die. Then, they are cut off because of the poor circulation that ceases to bring life (blood) to those body parts. Prayer from one member of the body of Christ to another keeps the oil of the Holy Spirit flowing. This spiritual principle of the “flow of the Spirit” can be compared to the good flow of the blood that is being pumped in the physical body that keeps every body member healthy and thriving. Not praying for “one another” can be compared to the poor flow of blood or poor circulation that ceases to bring life to that body part. When we concentrate on our "four and no more" within our walls, and have no commitment to pray for others, the flow of the Holy Spirit is not moving as it should; therefore, the “move of God” in churches is slowly dying and as the body parts sometimes are amputated because of the bad blood flow, many times members of the body of Christ are also cutting themselves and dropping off the membership.
***PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER***
As I spent quality time seeking God in what area United Intercessors should focus on in prayer, He gave me this present message—Pray for one another and get the oil of the Holy Spirit flowing from member to member. Those prayers will release the blockages that are hindering the flow of the life of Christ needed to break forth into revival. Prophetic Ministries are part of the five-fold and carry the “now word” and are called to help point the body of Christ in the right direction so all can be victorious! Just as the arrow of the skilled archer is pointed in the exact right direction and hits the bull’s-eye, we are called to do the same in this hour. Therefore, in this new season one of the “now words” is to pray the prayers according to the book of Ephesians 1:17-23, and Ephesians 3:14-21 for one another. Why? Among the many reasons, one is—“that we might be filled with the fullness of God.” We are moving into another spiritual growth level and this is the hour that the church needs to come to the “fullness of Christ.”
***I CEASE NOT TO GIVE THANKS FOR YOU***
Paul began his prayer in Ephesians 1:15-16, by saying “Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers.” Paul knew that by saying in these verses, “I cease not to give thanks for you and make mention of you in my prayers,” the purpose of his armour was made totally complete. It was very important that he wear a full armour. In order to fully meet that requirement, he was called to pray and cover the backs of the saints from the enemy. In order for you and me to become complete in the armour, we must also “pray for one another.” We are instructed in the above verse to give thanks for our brothers and sisters in Christ. Why? First of all, as you begin to sincerely thank God for that brother/sister, something supernatural begins to happen to your heart of prayer—a welling of love comes bursting into your very being from Him! You see, without true love for that “someone else,” our prayers for him/her are not as effective. Only the prayer of true love and compassion for that person can truly be heard by Him because He is a God of love. Love touches and moves the heart of God and Paul knew this important principle of love.
Then Paul continued to pray in that same chapter, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.” In simpler words, Paul was telling the saints, “Because of my love for you, I’m prompted by the Holy Spirit to pray constantly for you. I’m asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you wisdom to see clearly and really understand who Christ is and all that He has done for you.” Paul was not into praying “symptom prayers.” A symptom prayer feebly attempts to only pray away the outward manifestation of the visible wrong that person is doing, simply because of his lack of wisdom to see clearly and really understand who Christ is. Paul knew that you had to go to the root cause of the wrong thinking, so that person could change and stay on the path of righteousness, following Christ. As we also pray that our brother/sister in Christ understands who Christ really is and all that He has done for them, then these prayers will begin to penetrate that person’s understanding. They will then freely desire to change their lifestyle because their hearts are being flooded with the light of Christ, and then they will see the wonderful, victorious future God has called them to share with His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit deals with their heart and then, they will freely choose to do the will of God instead. A controlling prayer that infringes our will upon another’s may seem to change that person for a while, but that change usually doesn’t last. It was just a forceful, psychic prayer and that person soon returns back to his old way. If they are gossiping, fornicating, mistreating another, playing around in the world, taking advantage of you, not loving, or whatever the fault, whatever the sin, as we pray as Paul prayed, they will change. Soon, they will begin to understand that God was made rich because those that are Christ’s have been given and now belong to Him (God).
***PAUL’S EFFECTIVE PRAYER FOR THE SAINTS***
Now, further into the book of Ephesians 3:14 & 15, Paul said, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.” Paul put himself on his knees in a posture of prayer and prayed for the body of Christ, “That He would grant you according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man.” In other words, Paul is saying in his prayer, “When I think of the wisdom and scope of His plan for us, I fall down on my knees and pray to the Father of all, the great God, that out of His glorious unlimited resources He will give you the mighty inner strengthening of His Holy Spirit and I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within Him as you trust in Him. I pray that your roots may go down deep into the soil of God’s love, and I pray that you will understand how long, how wide, how deep and how high His love for you really is. My prayer is that you will experience this love for yourselves, yet it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it. So at least you will be filled up with God himself and because of His mighty power at work, He is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of, infinitely beyond our highest prayers or what we may hope and all because of His master plan of salvation that brings us from Glory to Glory.”(LB) Church, as we begin to pray for one another as Paul taught us in Ephesians 1:17-23, Ephesians 3:14-21, I truly believe that a new glory will come into our personal lives, the lives of those we pray for and our churches. That NEW Glory will help our churches break out into a fresh and new anointing that is so desperately needed in this hour.
***OIL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT RELEASED***
Praying for one another” will remove the blockages of competitions, jealousies, hurts, unforgiveness, etc. and as we thank God for one another, true love will again begin to flow. The oil of the Holy Spirit will be released in an hour that the oil is needed. Last, but not least, Paul said in Ephesians 6:18, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” Here the emphasis is on, “Watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” Paul was saying keep alert, watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints which are God’s holy people." Today the Holy Spirit calls out the same to us, watch, keep alert, and be interceding this year, 2009, on behalf of all the saints or simply, “pray for one another.” I’m asking each one of you to begin to pray for others you know on a daily basis the prayers of Ephesians 1:17, and Ephesians 3:14. I truly believe that we will please the heart of our Father and be tremendously blessed in our lives as we begin to do this. Praying in the unity of the faith pleases Jesus our Saviour who died for all of us.
***EXPLOSIONS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ACTIVATED AS WE PRAY***
I believe that as we pray, great explosions of the Holy Spirit such as miracles, breakthroughs, deliverance's, etc., will begin to come to the wonderful people of God. Don’t hesitate; don’t put off praying for your friends and family members. How long should you pray? However the Lord leads you personally to pray for that person or persons. I truly believe we will begin to see mighty breakthroughs. To God Be the Glory!
