And how important is this next weapon? It will make our enemy tremble with fear! Run while screaming! And beg us to STOP!
Our next weapon and for sure the most powerful is our prayers to God! We are now instructed after having suited up with the whole armor of God, and after engaging our sword into this battle, we are instructed to pray, as we read, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” Ephesians 6:18 Friend this is an intense battle, not to be taken lightly, and not one to be forsaken! We have all heard the term, “Prayer Warrior” a prayer warrior is not a prayer contestant, but they are warriors! The prayers that these warriors offer to the Lord are sent up to do battle! These prayers are heard and answered, because these prayers come from the faithful and bold! God delights in our prayers, He inhabits our praise, and He responds quickly to our fervent and passionate petitions! God knows we are in a war, this is the whole reason He trains us! Our eternal life may rest upon our preparation and training. The skill in which we walk with this whole armor of God knowing that we are called to be vigilant and always praying will make our enemy shutter in fear! This is what happens when God’s faithful pray! The Power of prayer is well documented in history. There are endless stories of salvations, healings, and miracles!
The last thing that our enemy wants us to do is pray, yet God instructs us to pray always. Listen friends let’s reason this out, the devil does not bother to war with those that are not a threat to him.
