Prayer for Our Spiritual Warfare
Thoughts on Ephesians 6:12...
Paul reminds us to be spiritually strong because our true enemy is spiritual, therefore, our weapons must be not physical. While some people may have enemies of this world, Paul talks about our greatest enemy, Satan. Of course that there are and always will be different opinions, different interpretations, and understandings of this verse. The general idea, however; is that we are all in a spiritual warfare and we must be strong in our faith to be able to fight that spiritual evil that influences our life on Earth. And, the only effective weapon is God’s word, prayer and the blood of Jesus.
Heavenly Father, please helps us recognize our spiritual enemies. Strengthen my body and soul so I may fight all the evil spirits and their works. Lord, please cover me with your precious blood and fill me with your Holy Spirit. Please equip me with faith and shield me from the enemy. May your hand never leave me and may your will be done in my life. Amen.
