Prayer Warriors For God
Recently, I’ve been asking myself these questions and I have to confess that I can’t say that I always am. But my desire is that God would show me and that He would teach me how to pray and to become a prayer warrior. Someone that spends more that just a a couple minutes in prayer but is in tune with God all day. You don’t even have to stop what your doing but PRAY. Pray about everything. Pray when your depressed or stressed or in a hard situation. Pray also and thank God for the way He HAS blessed you. God hears our prayers and he cares…he really does. And we might ask the question…why doesn’t he always answer our prayers?Sometimes we’ve prayed and prayed…and God still chooses to not answer the way we want. Your prayers are not in vain. Just because he answers differently than we think doesn’t mean he hasn’t heard us. It takes sacrificing our own wants and wishes to become at rest with God’s plan. We may not always understand but God really does know best. Surrendering of ourselves and letting go is difficult…but with it comes peace. and rest.
There is a desperate need for prayer warriors in our world today. People that are committed to prayer and seeking souls for God’s kingdom. You know…we hang out friends late into the night, when was the last time we hung out with God for awhile? When was the last time we interceded for a friend? Or just spent time with God, seeking His face and being open before Him so he can fill us with His love and strength. The Christian life can’t be lived on our own. It’s when we can’t, that God CAN. In our weaknesses, God can be strong in us and be glorified.
When we pray, are we asking God to fill us with his Holy Spirit?And when the Holy Spirit tells us to do something, do we listen?Pray. Ask God to show you what he wants from you and if He’s telling you to go and pray with someone, go. If he’s telling you that you need to forgive, forgive. If he’s asking you to let go, give everything to Him.
So my challenge is: become a prayer warrior. Stand strong in your faith. Stay in tune with God and when He speaks to you, LISTEN.
