*Why? Why?? Why???*
So I was in a very powerful and spiritual Pentecost service on 23rd March, 2017. What happened shocked me. It happened during the prayer session. Not that what happened was wrong but I didn’t understand the phenomenon.
After the timely and effective teaching on “Being an Example of Christ in Wisdom”,we were praying, which is normal in most Pentecostal Services.
At a point, our leader told us to pray that we would claim and receive the INHERITANCE God has prepared from the beginning of the earth to us. All members zoomed into prayer.
But my shock came when our leader changed the prayer to the topic that God should deal with all evil forces from our families which are working against the progress of our families. This prayer is very biblical and strategic.
My shock came not from the prayer itself but from the way people responded to the prayer. In fact, the intensity of this particular prayer topic was so much that if you were inadvertently asleep in the service you would have been woken up.
So I ask what is it about dealing with the devil and demons that we pray so much in such prayers that we seem to pray less when it comes to receiving good things from God?
I just don’t get it.
