When you believe in God the Father and know His Son Jesus you have moved beyond the physical realm and have entered into the spirit. Once you are in the spirit you access the Father through prayer. You commune with God. You speak with God. Worship is a part of this realm. Singing songs and hymns to the Lord is in this realm. The presence and power of God is in this realm.
In the spirit you begin to be strengthened within your inner man. Your spirit/soul is strengthened and you become on fire. This fire that burns on the inside repels demons and causes them to tremble. A fire is placed in your eyes and weight has been granted to your words. Your words become life to those who receive them. Your desire in this realm is strictly for the Lord and you enjoy hearing his loving commands. It is in this realm where you receive your supernatural gifts. It is in this realm where you receive the mission for your life. The purpose for your existence is in this realm. Direction is in this realm.
Frequent prayer strengthens the believer because it gives you rest from the world. You leave the world and enter a new realm when you pray. You are transported from this world and now the spirit world has been opened and in this realm all things are possible to those who believe. In heavenly places you acquire tools that aid your earthly life. Tools that not only benefit you, but those who hear you.
Prayer is the door into this realm. This is why Satan hinders prayer. He does not want you access your strength and your gifts and those wonderful tools and jewels of wisdom that God grants to those who are faithful in coming to him in prayer. Keep praying. Pray everyday and ask the Lord Jesus how do I get those heavenly tools to work in the natural. Ask the Lord to show you what are the best tools for my current situation. Believe and you will receive access and wisdom.
It has been brought to my attention that some people are in fact praying. They have been praying for God to move in their family. Break generational curses, heal sicknesses, remove cancer, remove anxiety, worry and depression. What they fail to do often is fast the Biblical way. Prayer is easy. It doesn’t cost you much. You throw it up and oh well I did all I could. Also, in the book of James laying hands on the sick is seldom done with the addition of faith and time. We rush God, but will watch a 3 hour movie. Hours upon hours of television or internet, but refuse to spend time laboring with someone in prayer.
I also find that people will work to abuse those who do work to fast and pray and labor with God. One Christian connected to Jesus is enough to heal their family. Just one. One prophet prayed and stop time. One prophets shadow healed the sick. Are they better in God’s eyes than you? What does God respect? Obedience and Faith. Also, keep in mind God has his own will and may not desire that persons healing.
I remember casting out a demon and did not find someplace suitable for the spirit to go and deciding to cast it into an animal for which I was forbidden, God had another place for the evil spirit to go. Seek God’s will on family matters.
Ask yourself before you send out that prayer list? Did I fast and pray? Did I speak with them about Jesus and did I offered to place oil on their heads and pray like the Bible says in faith? Did I work and use my resources before asking others to use theirs? The first line of defense in everyones family according to the Bible is the immediate family. From there we branch out and if that is not sufficient than seek the elders of the church or one who operates in the gifts of healing, if that is the need.
P.S. Every Christian has gifts from God and if you do not know your gift. You should ban yourself from every form of play until you do. If your soul and your families souls is not that important, then why should it be to someone else? Of course, every Christian is called to love their neighbor and their enemies, but keep in mind that we all have a responsibility in this fight against evil.
Then He spoke a parable to them that men always ought to pray and not lose heart Luke 18:1
As a believer in Jesus the unanswered prayer is the most discouraging aspect of prayer. Much of our prayer is to fulfill our own selfish lust, but for those prayers offered that have not been tainted with selfish lust we wonder why the delay. So our response is to cease praying about it. Now if God has given you the answer and you do not like it, know that he is superior and his wisdom exceeds that of your own and he knows best. If you are waiting on the Lord, have faith the answer is on the way. The unjust judge in the parable in Luke 18 granted the woman her request because of her continual coming and God has promised to do the same for us, in the midst of him being slow to move. The requirement is having faith in God continually and ceasing not in same prayer request and it shall come to pass.

Father, set ten angles over me and have them pour buckets of joy into my spirit. Once those buckets have been poured into my spirit, now pour out your love into my spirit. Once those buckets have emptied, now pour into my spirit peace.
Thank you Jesus for satisfying my spirit, with your Spirit of Joy, Love, and peace.
And following Him was a large crowd of the people, and of women who were mourning and lamenting Him. But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. “For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed (Luke 23:27-29).
