Yesterday while I was studying on the Armor of God, I was visited by two doves. I began to notice one was larger than the other and the smaller was following after it. This morning the enemy baited me right into an attack. I sat here on my bed with tears steaming down my face, completely unable to move. I wasn’t alone. I wasn’t unprepared, in fact my Poppa had prepared me all week! I looked up “fervent” and it means “having or displaying a passionate intensity.” Just before this attack, I had prayed a fervent prayer. “Patient in tribulation.” I looked up “tribulation” and it means “ – cause of great trouble or suffering.” Finally, “continuing instant in prayer.” I looked up “instant” and it means “happening or coming immediately.” That last part is KEY! In my Bible study this week, I learned prayer is a critical part to the armor of God. In reading these verses the Lord showed me prayer is also a critical part in unlocking the key to the peace to these verses! We can be fervent in Spirit and patient in tribulation but still experience unrest without continued prayer to both unlock the peace and bring about victory! Our spirit is going to wear down and our patience is going to run thin without prayer that sustains and unlocks. God also showed me I froze and was unable to breathe today because my prayer was delayed and not instant. Come on somebody! Look at God!!! Thank You Poppa for Your Word and revelation today! I pray you gleaned from it as much as I did. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

Very nice, Thank you! These days I pray often and it has helped me in many ways! My favorite thing about Prayer is that it put me at ease and keeps me there a long while! Take care my dear friend!
