The Weapon of Prayer (Basilea Schlink)

Let’s turn things around through prayer. Listen to Basilea Schlink, who lived from 1904-2001, about prayer’s power:

“Prayer means being called to be watchmen on His fortresses, not resting day or night until salvation, help and healing come to people’s souls.

Prayer, which is the purpose and commission of our lives, does not only bring comfort and help for ourselves. There is far more to it. When we follow Jesus’ challenge to pray, new vistas will suddenly open up and many changes will occur.

Previously, we may have been resigned to the state of affairs and assumed an apathetic attitude: What is the point in exerting ourselves if nothing can be altered? But the Lord has given us the weapon of prayer. Now we have the opportunity to restrain the powers of darkness, save souls, experience divine intervention and mitigate the judgments of God” (Basilea Schlink, Building a Wall of Prayer).
