Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. ~Matthew 18:18-20
Dearest AWM Family,
While no prayer is ever wasted, sooner or later in every Christian’s life we realize that we are going around familiar mountains praying about the same things over and over again. The video below offers a sharp shooter approach to prayer provided for us in scripture that, when applied can change the trajectory in our family’s lives. The Bible tells us in Matthew 18 that we need to pray alongside other believers, coming into agreement, to see our prayers activated. Ideally that looks like a husband and wife praying in authority over their homes and their families. Since the picture perfect marriage scenario is often not the case, we also need to recognize that we have the leading of the Holy Spirit. If we follow His leading and pray in authority as He reveals things to us, we can expect to see things change. But, when we align ourselves with a prayer partner and pray together with another believer using the Keys to the Kingdom, we see things change more frequently and instantaneously. We are the keepers of our homes and when we have dedicated them to the Lord, we must stand our ground against the wiles of the enemy and call Heaven down to earth. In short, there comes a pivotal moment in a believing parent or spouse’s life where we have to make a firm choice and ask ourselves who we serve. As Joshua did in Joshua 24:15, we have to declare “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” and we have to make more of a firm stand than we ever have had to before if we want to see the Lord’s desired outcome (His will) manifest in our families. And, we have to remember, if we want to see change occur in our communities and nations, we have to start by praying in our own families and allow the Lord’s will to spread from there.
As the Happy Homes segment of this ministry is dedicated to helping one another maintain peace, order, and sanctuary in their homes, I felt it was important to help you lay a strong foundation for the Lord to build just that. If you do not have a prayer partner, please feel free to email us at prayers@audrawatersministries where we have prayer partners standing by to align their faith with yours and help you speak the Kingdom of Heaven into existence in your homes, families, neighborhoods, and communities.
For more about operating in your Authority in Christ and using the Keys to the Kingdom, here is the short video I mentioned. If you would like to share your testimony with us on how using these Biblical Principles have changed your circumstances, we would love to hear about that and rejoice with you, too. Happy Praying and know that if you are using the authority Christ gave you, I am more than excited for you as He is sure to make all things new for you.
Have you accepted Christ as your Savior?
If you would like to accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, please pray the following prayer:
"God, I believe in you and your son Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave to save me. Today, I invite Jesus into my heart to stay. I make you Lord over my life. Make me new. Wash me, Lord, and cleanse me. In Jesus Name, Amen"
If you have just prayed that prayer, we want to celebrate your new victory with you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can welcome you into the kingdom. We don't want you to have to walk alone and we have some resources we would like the opportunity to share with you.
