Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.Ephesians 6:18 NLT
Whether we recognize it or not, we are in the middle of a battle. Sometimes it’s more than just the ups and downs of life. It’s spiritual warfare. When we said yes to Jesus, we joined the fight. And while most of us know that we must arm ourselves for battle (Ephesians 6:10-17), we neglect another piece of strategy. Prayer.
Prayer connects us to God.
Today, I want to encourage you to persist! Whenever you pray, you connect yourself with spiritual resources. You are accessing divine war strategy from heavenly places. The Word says that we should pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Don’t drop your guard because it is at that moment that the enemy comes like a flood. Be watchful, knowing that your discernment and strength are increasing with every single prayer.
Reflect – What does your prayer life look like right now? Does it reflect the teachings of Paul in Ephesians 6:18?
