Three gears (prayer protocol)
Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. However this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:19-21
There are different levels of physical fitness required for different levels of physical undertaking.
You can’t run a full marathon (42km) on the fitness of an 800m run.
In the spiritual realm – there are levels of spiritual fitness required for different spiritual undertakings.
There are mountains that will not move until you shift to the next gear.
When the disciples failed to cast out an evil spirit – JESUS taught them three gears in the spirit.
The basis of all spiritual undertaking is faith. You have to believe and trust God with a situation – acting on the basis of the Word…not feelings. Some things will happen simply because you believe.
To faith you must add prayer – or certain things won’t move. Because you believe you must pray.
To faith and prayer you must add fasting. It’s the third gear for those who want to catalyze and accelerate spiritual undertakings.
