Steve Weatherford’s wife’s prayer muted the enemy’s voices in his mind.
On Instagram, speaker Steve Weatherford recently shared a powerful photo of him and his wife praying before his speaking engagement in Manhattan, New York. In the post, he revealed that the most insecure moments in his life are right before he steps on the stage to share his testimony with people.
That’s the moment when the enemy whispers loudest in his ear.
“The enemy whispers in my ear… These are the voices that creep into my mind. And sometimes, they are louder than others,” he wrote.
Lies of the enemy
It often happens when he has to speak to “secular” audiences. Steve knows that the enemy is trying to stop him from sharing the message of the Lord to these people.
“I believe the enemy knows that there is POWER in our testimony and he wants me to keep my ‘testimony stuff’ in church. The enemy hates when God’s messengers bring the Truth and light into the dark places. The enemy hates when men gather publicly to speak of the goodness of God, and the forgiveness and freedom in His son Jesus Christ.”
It was the powerful prayer from his wife right before he preaches that changes everything in him.
“I can feel a MAJOR difference in the Warrior Spirit I bring to the microphone when she prays over me right before I raise my voice to bring glory to King Jesus.”
Just as Steve felt the power of the Holy Spirit while his wife prayed for him, he is also encouraging other husbands to ask for prayers from their wives. There is power and there is God amidst a couple praying in His name.
