What does it mean to be a prayer warrior? It’s not about heroics, and it’s not about showing off either. A prayer warrior is someone who has been broken and restored to health by God.
Jesus was the greatest prayer warrior of all time. We must follow his example and emphasis of prayer. We might have a different focus from time to time, but the essence of how Christ prayed should be the same. His priority was always about relationships–with his Father, with his Biblical time disciples, and with his Body now.
Remember, spiritual combat is much more than just praying forcefully against evil. It’s also about your life testimony–in public and in private. The Spirit wins victories in every area of your life. Trust in this process and fight the good fight.
A special shout-out to all the prayer warriors who contribute faithfully to this site. Jan, Jean, Colin, Suzanne, Boni, and Mia… may God pour out his abundant grace and blessings over you all. Thank you!
Audio message and prayer from Vincent:
. . .
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
PRAYER FOR THE PRAYER WARRIOR
O heavenly Lord,
Here I am in your presence. I am your faithful servant. You saved my life & soul forever with your love.
I invoke your Holy Spirit, O Lord. In the name of my Savior Jesus, I call out to the Father. Rise up, O Lord! Rise up!
Give me strength & clarity in Christ. May the blood of the Lamb protect me, my family and my community. Send your mighty Spirit to drive the enemy far into the abyss.
Unify your Church, O Lord. One Body. One Blood. One Spirit. Reach out to us, transform us. May we testify to Christ resurrected from whom all good things come.
Pour out your abundant grace to go forward to renew & save. Heal the wounded. Free the slaves. Let them taste of your goodness. May many come and kneel at the throne of the Son of God to give him glory, honor & praise.
All according to your holy will,
In Jesus name,
