The Nuclear Power of Prayer
The Devil has no ability to contain prayer. Prayer is spiritually nuclear in nature; it is the raw material of God and His people. Prayer is out of Satan's influence. He has no power to warp or influence a prayer's trajectory to God's throne after it has been prayed. Once a prayer is unleashed, it bounces around eternity in perpetuity, burning before the throne of God like incense.
This is why prayer is so spiritually dangerous for Satan. It supersedes the limitations of a mortal world. Prayer is immortal. It has no boundaries and no marker lines. Prayer holds ultimate potential. The best the Devil can hope for is that you don't pray. And much of his strategy is to discourage you from praying at all, as a prayer never prayed has zero chance of ever being answered.

Wow, when I read this, it was the first time it hit me. The devil has no power over our prayers. That my intimate relationship with the Father is held confidential to only Him. The only thing Satan can do is try to keep me from that relational time with Him but He can’t affect my prayer to Him. I know this doesn’t mean that all my prayers will be answered by a “Yes” from the Father but, it does mean that when I pray, they are not used against me or thwarted that my Dad won’t hear them.
I have always known there is a mighty power in praying but for the first time I see this scripture completely new, maybe you will too. We all need a radical change in our prayer time with our Dad.
8When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
