F-I-G-H-T the Spiritual Battle Part 2 “I”

-

Yesterday we learned that to F-I-G-H-T the spiritual fight we must first and foremost have Faith in Jesus Christ.

Our next weapon in the fight is:

Intentional Prayer

But what if we began to think of prayer as a powerful spiritual weapon in our life instead of a religious duty?

Prayer is powerful. Intentional prayer is life-changing. Over and over again God’s word encourages us to be “faithful in prayer” (Romans 12:12) and to “pray about everything.” (Philippians 4:6) The importance of prayer taught in the scriptures cannot be overlooked.

Yet we often consider prayer to be boring, a time waster and a last resort. But what if we began to think of prayer as a powerful spiritual weapon in our life instead of a religious duty?

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 says, “Though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

Do you know what that weapon is? Prayer! If the battle we are fighting is spiritual then we must intentionally use the spiritual weapon of prayer in every area of our lives.

As Philippians 4:6 says, “Don’t worry about anything: instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

The key to victory lies in the intentionality of your prayer life.

Bottom line… If you’re not praying you’re not winning.
