Clint Eastwood declared in the now notorious Super Bowl ad that:
“the world’s gonna hear the roar of our engines.”
There are physical engines such as the one in your car.
But there is also the roar that you hear when aggressive prayer eagles engage their spiritual engines at the midnight hour.
Immediately they begin to roar, be prepared to see the manifestation in the physical world…
- in signs and wonders…
- in hard-to-explain miracles and breakthrough.
To confirm this, let’s go to the City of Prayer Warriors to see how one “baby” Christian, Stephen, has gone about…
Snatching Victory from the Jaws of Defeat…
I lost my job last year around March.
I had 2 loans I was servicing. I have a family, my wife and two kids. My wife was in college, at the time I lost my job. I had just started a printing business, which had not stabilized.
I was on the verge of giving up with debts and no steady income but I had to be strong for my family. During this period I gave my life to Christ in September 2011, because I was all alone.
All the friend I used to have were not there any more. Not even one former workmate would check to find out how I was. I then came across one of your books through a neighbor at my business place.
I read and I started learning how to pray. It was like a baby learning how to walk.
I even changed the church. I went to one where they pray your kind of prayers. Last year December 21st after your email I embarked on Esther fast. I was so desperate and I really wanted the fastest way out of the debt.
Things went from bad to worse … temporarily!
After the Esther fast, instead of things becoming better it became worse. I could not afford to pay for my house and business premises. There was one day that they almost closed my house because of rent arrears.
My wife cried almost the whole day. Then somebody came and paid it. We thank God. Then they closed my business premises for rent arrears, again the same person came and paid, thanks be to God.
She let God use her. I remember two days to Christmas I walked 12 km from my place of business to my house because I didn’t have even a single cent to afford even bus fare.
I reached the house and to my surprise God had made provision for the food. At the beginning of the year I did the 14 day prayer fast and gate prayers as per your instructions.
Then immediately I finished, the 14 days, our church was doing 21 days of prayer and fasting which I took on.
To cut the long story short…
At the beginning of this Feb 2012, my wife was called to go start working for a job she never applied for. My business has turned around, and I have just paid my business premises and house rent with money from my printing business.
Remember that this was the business that was almost going down. Even the person who was working for me left in December.
But now I am extremely busy with client. Even my competition are wondering what happened to my place.
Elisha, thank you so much. We serve the God who is marvellous and powerful. He is real. He comes through for His people.
I will serve Him all the days of my life. I am so much at peace.

All praise and glory to our GOD!
Now I can personally relate to what Steve is saying here.
Even if you find this difficult to believe… here’s the truth:
I have walked in Steve’s shoes !
I know what it feels like to be fired from a job, suddenly and without any warning.
I have been there.
I know what it feels like for all your “friends” to desert you at your hour of greatest need. (Don’t forget: even Jesus was abandoned by His friends at Gethsemane).
I have been there.
I even know how it feels to NOT be able to provide for your family.
I have been there too.
I know first hand what affliction feels like…
The good news is that …
You are reading this now because the LORD used those storms of life … to teach my hands to war and my fingers to fight.
HE has equipped me (and mandated me) to share the secrets of victory that I learned those many years in the furnace of affliction.
So now you know why the advice and prayers on this site work!
Is the enemy breathing down your neck?
You need to pay close attention to what Steve did.
The devil wanted to push him into
But instead, the trials and troubles only made him TOUGHER and STRONGER in the spirit.
Frankly this is the MAIN reason that the LORD allows certain situations in the lives of His people.
Without encountering (and overcoming) certain tough situations in your life, you can NEVER become a useful vessel in the kingdom of God.
Remember our dear old Apostle Paul. The tougher the situation he faced, the MORE powerful he wrote and preached!
He ended up writing two-thirds of the New Testament. And today we are all the better for it.
Are you even now in the eye of the storm?
Don’t count yourself out…
The LORD is on your case!
And His glory will soon be revealed in your situation, IF YOU FAINT NOT.
Remember Steve’s testimony here. Remember Apostle Paul.
Let me leave you with this powerful Scripture (penned by good old Apostle Paul):
“For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
- 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (NLT)
