LR: Welcome to Make Your Day Count.  I am so glad to be here standing in the midst of the Abundant Life Prayer Tower.  I am Lindsay Roberts.  We’re here amidst the Prayer Group right here at the Prayer Tower.  And I’m telling you something, the Abundant Life Prayer Group is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with these particular prayer partners where we are—we’re live in Tulsa right now at two o’clock—and these people are sitting here bathing this atmosphere in prayer.

You know my husband Richard Roberts.  We’ve been doing The Hour of Healing every night live from right here.  And when we walked into this atmosphere, I said, “Richard, you know what?  The Hour of Healing has taken on a new level, a new dimension,” when we have felt this presence of the prayer of the faithful people here in this place.

And so we said, “You know what?  Let’s think about doing Make Your Day Count here.”  Now we’ve never done this before.  As many years as we’ve done Make Your Day Count, we’ve never done it live from the Prayer Tower.  So here we are.

And I was reading a scripture the other day that really was the catalyst for me to do this live from standing right here.  Now I have to tell you, I’m used to Richard being standing right next to me and kind of holding me up and lifting me up.  This is a whole new day.  Lindsay’s doing it by herself.  Oh, mercy!  Now you all pray for me, and I’m going to pray for you.

I’m going to tell you how this started.  If you look in the book of Galatians, and it says in Galatians, chapter 5, verse 25, “If we live in the Spirit, then let us also walk in the Spirit.  If we live in the Spirit, let us walk in the Spirit.”

You know, we want spiritual prayers from a spiritual God, but we’re walking in the flesh and getting into fear and doubt and worry and unbelief and all kinds of garbage that we don’t believe we need to be a part of.  And yet we want God’s spiritual answers.

Well, it’s very simple.  If you want God’s spiritual answers, then you’ve got to walk in the Spirit.  Okay, well, how do you do that?  Well, the Bible says very clearly you don’t walk in the flesh; you walk in the Spirit.  You walk by faith, which is a spiritual atmosphere.

Well, I had a person tell me as I was coming in here—you’ve seen my friend Melissa on the program many times—and as I was walking in here, she said, “If we don’t acknowledge spiritual warfare, we’re going to turn into spiritual road kill.”

And that hit me.  If we don’t start acknowledging spiritual warfare, that satan comes against us to steal, to kill, and to destroy, if we don’t start recognizing that these attacks are not just flesh and blood, but they’re powers and principalities and rulers of darkness—and the Bible says, spiritual hosts of wickedness—if we don’t recognize that some of the junk that we go through is not just flesh and blood, but it’s an attack of satan himself coming against the body of Christ, trying to get us into fear and doubt and unbelief and trying to get us to believe we’ll never get out of this mess, “Oh, my goodness!” and just walk in fear.

We’ve got to get into the spirit and do what the Spirit of God says.  I was looking at the scripture in 1 Peter 5:8.  It says, “Satan goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”  So then if you take that scripture, okay, we know satan is a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  How is it that he devours us or doesn’t devour us?

Go to Malachi 3, and it said, “God rebukes the devourer for our sakes.”  When we bring tithe and offering into the storehouse, God promised He would rebuke the devourer so satan couldn’t go around as a roaring lion devouring us.

Okay, so I thought about that, and I said, “All right, Lord, we just have got to stop what we’re doing and pray.”  The Bible says, “Men ought to pray and not faint.”  Maybe you’re in a situation right now—and like I said, we’re live right now here in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  And if you want to call the Abundant Life Prayer Group, pick up your telephone, 918-495-7777.  They’re taking prayer requests.  They’re bringing them to me right now.

And as they’re doing this, we’re going to pray.  We’re going to pray warfare prayers.  Satan is attacking you in a spiritual war.  So we have to attack him back—we don’t wrestle flesh and blood, the Bible says.  This is not about people.  He said, “You do not have the privilege of fighting flesh and blood, powers and principalities and rulers of darkness.”

Okay, well how do you fight them?  He said the only fight we get into is the good fight of our faith.  So we are going to begin to pray, and we are going to pray for you.  We’re going to pray for me.  We’re going to pray for whatever needs come in to the Abundant Life Prayer Group.

And right now live from the Prayer Tower, we’re going to pray for you and begin to believe that what has come against you, whether it’s spiritual, physical, financial, emotional, whatever it is that’s coming against you, we’re going to believe that God is going to open you the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing where there’s not room enough to receive it and rebuke the devourer for your sake, as His Word in Malachi promises.  So we’re going to do that today.  We want you to stay tuned.  We’re going to take a break, and I’m going to walk over there and sit down.  And we’re going to continue to pray.  But please remember, during this break, you can pick up your telephone and dial 918-495-7777.  And these are the prayer partners you’ll be talking to right here that I’m standing in front of.  And you’ll be talking to them.  They’re going to bring those prayer requests live to me, and we’re going to begin spiritual warfare in your behalf.  So stay tuned.  We’re going to be right back.
