“When God fights, it’s of small consequences whether the hand that holds the sword is big or small,” Joan of Arc.
Is the aforementioned is true, why? If it’s so, it’s because of the following. For the word of God is sharper than any two edged sword, piercing to the very consciousness of human life. Thus able to discern the thoughts, intentions and purposed of anyone and reacts accordingly. (cp. Hebrews 4:12 with exegesis).
It starts here as Pauline prayer. Meant to be prayed over by all of God’s saints. In the first person which is the petitioner. And it must, also be carefully studied because it’ll take one deep into the realm of spirituality where few dwell. Identify, and focus upon key words.
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of glory. May he give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.
That the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that you might know what is the hope of His calling. And what are the riches of His glory, in the inheritance of the saints. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-18).
The modern day church through its congregants are to engaged in secular affairs, and through them struggling to end what doesn’t meet with their approval.
What shame this has brought upon the church and secular society. Governments legislate that’s their job. And when their legislation is in opposition to what the scriptures declare. Christians pray! That’s why the aforementioned euphemism about the sword is more than that. It’s all about, Hebrews 4:12 and Ephesians 1:17-18).
Frankly, there’s a lot more involved to successful praying, but that’s a good way to start reversing ungodly legislation. And frankly again, it probably will not work because huge swaths of Christendom will not forsake their whoring of politics with faith.
Here’s what plaguing Christendom. Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” (cp. 1 Corinthians 15:33). And it’s more than just physical association, it’s also about the mental aspects of ones aspirations. If the whore is condemned in the scriptures, so is the pimp! In other words leave the carnal to carnal, and the spiritual to God and everything will work out as He pleases.
James the brother of Jesus put it this way. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know the that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes themselves enemies of God. (cp. James 4:4).
And that should explain all one needs to know, as to why prayer changes so little.
But be hopeful because you might be what is necessary to once again but the horse before the wagon. “They eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (cp. 2 Chronicles 16:9a).
