My husband was owed almost $30,000 by one of his clients. For over a year, we prayed for the Lord to move on the client to release the money and saw no result. It was time to change the prayer. We began to ask God for the prayer that would produce the result we were seeking. He was faithful. In my women's bible study, the Lord provided the prayer that would cause Him to move on our behalf.
After reading the following verses in the study, I shared them with my husband. We knew these verses were God's answer. In prayer, we proclaimed them over my husband's client. Led by the Holy Spirit, my husband took a daring step. He put them at the bottom of his next bill to them.
"...The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning." - Leviticus 19:13b
"Indeed, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cries out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth." James 5:4
"And I will come near to you for judgement... against those who exploit wage earners... says the Lord of hosts." Malachi 3:5
There is nothing more powerful than wielding the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God, when you are in a battle with the enemy. Within a week, my husband received $27,000. Less than a month later, he received the remainder.
Prayer is powerful as long as it isn't prayed amiss. However, God is faithful. If you ask, He will give you exactly what you need to be victorious in battle. Your Father in Heaven is all powerful. He loves to demonstrate that power through you, your life circumstances and answered prayer.
