Yesterday, Westside’s speaking team met to pray and discuss upcoming messages. As we worshiped and prayed the Spirit of God filled the place where we were meeting. We began praying against strongholds in our community and against powers of darkness that are pressing against God’s kids. He gave us a picture of darkness being pushed away by light as we prayed. I felt like whatever we did took ground for God’s kingdom.
I know it sounds so epic and mysterious and strange to some, but I’m reminded of Daniel who fasted and prayed for weeks and received a vision of an angel who was held back but was able to press through as Daniel continued to pray and fast.
This thing isn’t easy. Praying persistently and fasting are hard work. And so often we stop right before the miracle happens. Keep praying and believing church. Ground is being taken back.
