PRAYER AIDS

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 2 Chronicles 5:1-14

But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.

2 Kings 3:15

I always play preaching tapes or music when I am praying. I want you to understand this principle: the speed of preaching/music is a hundred times faster than the speed of silence. This means that time runs a hundred times faster when there is some kind of background preaching or music. Before you realise it, you would have accomplished several hours in prayer!

Pray with preaching tapes. The sound of the preaching of the Word of God creates a very conducive atmosphere for spiritual things. Dear friend, we are constantly bombarded with the secular environment of our jobs, of godless friends and of television. This kind of atmosphere actually prevents prayer. The environment in our homes is often anti-prayer. You need something that will keep you in a prayer mood for at least one hour. Sometimes the message on the tape will spur you on to continue in the Spirit! Try it and you will never be the same again.

Pray with music in the background. Godly music creates a beautiful worship environment. The Spirit of the Lord will come upon you as you stay in the environment of anointed minstrels. Dear friend, the very atmosphere of our world is charged with demonic entities. The prince of the power of the air and his cohorts pollute the very air we breathe. It is difficult to pray in such an environment. This is the reason why many Christians do not pray for long hours; they are operating in a difficult atmosphere. Invest whatever it takes to create the right prayer atmosphere wherever you pray.
