Prayer is too important to neglect. You can always measure the church and meeting based off the prayer meeting. Fundamentals of prayer: 1. To live a life of direction and purpose. 2. Gives you empowerment through the Holy Spirit to overcome evil, to solve problems. For protection. To be healed, to be restored. But most of all, to enjoy. When you enjoy prayer you overcome much. When prayer becomes work, it becomes boring, but when it becomes fun you spend more time in prayer. The church is called for dominion. Jesus walked in dominion, wherever he went he commanded the sea, calmed the wind and storms. What do you do when the devil attacks you? You take dominion and say “Devil, greater is He that lives in me than he who lives in the world.” You take dominion by speaking the Word of God. The secret behind the ministry of Jesus was prayer. No man is greater than his prayer life.
