Eph. 6:18 π 1 Tim. 2:1

Prayer fulfils some law which enables God to work, and makes it possible for Him to accomplish His purposes. If such a law does not exist, and God has no need of the prayers of His children, then asking is a waste of time, but in fact, prayer is the greatest conceivable weapon of destruction at the disposal of the believer, destroying obstacles to God's working, either from sin or the works of the devil.

Prayer is DESTRUCTIVE as well as constructive, but to this end it must be radical, piercing to the very source of things, destroying the cause, or causes of hindrances to the operations of God. Prayer needs to be specific and radical, first in the sphere of the personal, then out through the local to the universal. Activity in prayer should be in the order of

1) Personal prayer, covering personal needs;

2) Family prayer, covering family needs;

3) Local prayer, covering environment needs;

4) Universal prayer, covering the needs of the whole Church of Christ, and the whole world. ( 1 Tim. 2:1 ; Eph. 6:18; top )
