Warren Wiersbe, one of my favorite speakers and commentators, told of the time he was pastoring in Chicago, “I met weekly with three pastor friends, and together we united in “warfare praying.” We claimed God’s promise to cast down the wrong thinking that was keeping people from surrendering to God; and God did great things in the lives of many people for who we interceded.”
While you and I pray for others, once the strongholds in the minds of others have been torn down, the door to the heart can be opened. When the Jews obeyed God at the walls of Jericho while marching around them, God gave the victory and the walls came down. Once this took place then they were able to go in and defeat the enemy.
Let us pray for the walls to be torn down so that God can gain the victory. We are not depending upon man’s wisdom and strength. We are not dependent upon our personality, human abilities, or even the authority we have in name of a Christian, but we are dependent upon our weapons of prayer, love, faith, and righteousness to bring the walls down. God is able to save to the uttermost.
