Prayer is used to "hurl" the spiritual weapons ... but regular traditional prayer will not work. Our prayers must be based on the Word of God.
When we pray, we have to hurl (throw) the Word, throw the Name, or throw the Blood at the devil and his strongholds, or our prayers will have no effect. We have to use the weapon in our prayer ... because this is what gives it the power.
The same is true of our testimony. When we testify concerning the Word, the power of God goes forth. When we testify concerning His Name, that mighty Name of Jesus, the power of God goes forth.
This is why Jesus said in Mark 16:17,18: "These signs shall follow them that believe ... IN MY NAME" ... that's the weapon. "You shall lay your hands on the sick and they shall recover."
This is what Jesus meant. Throw the weapon first and then the devil has to bow. He has to bow! That's all there is to it!
