F-I-G-H-T the spiritual fight, Part Two ‘I’ntentional prayer

Last week, 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.

Prayer is powerful. Intentional prayer is life changing. Over and over again, God’s word encourages us to be “faithful in prayer,” according to Romans 12:12, and to “pray about everything,” according to Philippians 4:6. The importance of prayer as 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 power spiritual weapon in our life instead of a religious duty?

“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.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-4

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

As Philippians 4:6 said, “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.

The bottom line is that if you’re not praying, you’re not winning.

Check in next week for the “G” in F-I-G-H-T.
