Last Sunday evening, my wife and myself saw the new movie, War Room, which I easily give a 10/10 for it’s adherence to solid biblical teaching and doctrine. Time and time again in scripture, we see the results of dedicated, persistent prayer. Friends, prayer is our best, and only effective weapon against this world, who is being overrun by the Prince of Darkness, Satan. As Bible-believing Christians, we need to be on our knees in fervent prayer each and every day, crying out to God for intercession and healing.
The real ENEMY
Are you angry with your spouse? The real enemy is Satan.
Are you jealous of your neighbour? The real enemy is Satan.
Are you impatient? The real enemy is Satan.
Are you selfish? The real enemy is Satan.
Are you struggling with an addiction? The real enemy is Satan.
Are you full of pride? The real enemy is Satan.
Are you apt to hurt others by speaking sharp words? The real enemy is Satan.
Turning worries into prayer – “Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6
Prayer brings answers – “I cried out to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy mountain. O lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.” Psalm 3:4-6
Jesus prayed to His Father – “One day soon afterward Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night.” Luke 6:12
Do not cease praying – “So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.” Colossians 1:9
Pray for all people – “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by goodness and dignity.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Pray for endurance – “We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need.” Colossians 1:11
Pray without ceasing – “See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people. Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18
Pray for all things.
Pray with conviction.
Pray with confidence.
Pray with assurance.
Pray having faith.
Pray with your whole heart.
Pray, pray, pray. Pray with urgency – do it now!
