Ephesians 6:13-18 “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always, with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints”
God offers us the strategic blueprint to fight our battles. We are to employ truth, righteousness, faith, salvation, the gospel, the Spirit, and the Word. Yet, there is one strategic element that underlies it all – prayer. It is the most powerful of all weapons, and must be a ubiquitous part of our battles – big and small.
But wait, how often do we fail to employ this war-winning weapon? How often do we enter into battle with other weapons, while the decisive one stays sheathed? What wars are we waging while the pivotal weapon remains holstered?
In the midst of a critical year for our nation, Christians must bring out the big guns. We must unleash our most powerful weapons. We must engage while employing every strategic element. We must exhaust everything we have. We must enter the battle with our full force. We must leave nothing in reserve. We must attack our enemy on all fronts.
We must pray like America depends upon it. It does!
PLEASE EMPLOY PRAYER ON THE FRONT LINES OF AMERICA’S BATTLES. Praying always should be more than a guide for our strategy. It is our strategy!
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that Christians preach far more about praying than they practice praying), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that the Planned Parenthood President is praising Obama’s Supreme Court nominee), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
