My late Pastor, asked me a couple of years ago, “What has God called you to do”? I sincerely answered that He had called me to preach and teach. Pastor McNeil looked at me with a “what else look” out of his glasses. I truly didn’t know, but being the prophet that he was, he said, “And, you’re a prayer warrior.” At that time I didn’t get it! When referring to prayer warriors, I pictured the marching sisters in the movie, “Beloved.” I didn’t tell him that in my mind I wasn’t receiving that. I had never gathered a group of women together, walked down a dirt road, stood outside a house of a demon and begin to cast it out by the power of the Holy Spirit. No, not me!!!! I’ll take the teaching, the preaching, and I’ll go home…Thank you very much! Someone else can do that kind of thing, so I thought!
But baby, when God is upon you, you’ll do and say some things you cannot remember doing. After seeing Him work in prayer for myself, I’m honored to be one of His prayer warriors. If it means just one change will take place in prayer, you can trust, I’ll be on my post!
New King James Version (NKJV)
16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
