Be Strong in The Power Of His Might
Paul tells us to be strong in the Lord, and then he said, praying with all kinds of prayer. Praying with strong prayers is being strong in the power of His might.
Why did Paul tell the church to be strong? In prison himself, he knew they would have to contend with the devil. The reason Paul said the church needed to develop to be strong is because of the wiles of the devil:
• Cunning arts; it’s an art of the devil, and art always appeases the soul
• Deceitfulness of the devil
• Craftiness; schemes of the devil
• Trickery of the devil
These are the two essential entities for every Christian living in this world.
We are to be praying and be strong in prayer. We are to pray much to be strong in prayer.
Paul elaborates on how to be strong in the power of His might. We are to :
-To be Praying Always
-Praying With All Kinds of Prayer and Supplication
-Praying in the Spirit
-Be Watchful and have Perseverance in prayer.
