Pastor Taiwo has urged believers to be strong in the Lord as well as put on the whole armor of God to be able to confront the challenges of life.
According to him, life is a struggle, and every human problem on earth has its root in the spirit; hence the need for believers to take prayer seriously.
He said this at the July 30 Thursday Showers Service.
Speaking from Ephesians 6:10-18, Pastor further said that it is easy to give up when opposition seems too powerful for one but the remedy to this is prayer.
“Life is a battle. You don’t need to want to fight, you are called to fight. So, if you don’t want to lose heart or fail, then pray. It is as you pray that you will not lose heart in the face of the battle,” he noted.
The elements of effective prayer, according to pastor Taiwo, include the truth, breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.
“For prayer to be effective, you must come with the knowledge and understanding of your identity in Christ and these elements,” he said.
He, therefore, assured his listeners of victory in the face of life’s battle even as they pray always It gives them strength in the face of the battle.
“Men always ought to pray and not faint,” he concluded by using the scripture from Luke 8:1.
