Prayer & Warfare

Spiritual warfare is made up of two fighting positions, the offense and defense. Although the outcome is known and victory guaranteed, prayer and warfare are sometimes misconstrued. Much of the dysfunction in our lives is because we fight too much. Some have taken up the sword and are always fighting from a point of the offense. We fight unnecessary battles that God has not ordained or authorized. We fight when not provoked, sometimes we fight with non-existent entities. Whilst warfare is needed, it is not always necessary for us to fight. Although we are warriors on the battlefront, sometimes a manifestation of God’s promises happens when we stay out of the way. The enemy is quite clever and knows where to hit, hence our need to understand prayer and warfare.

Prayer when facing a court case or imprisonment

“Stand up, GOD; pit your holy fury against my furious enemies. Wake up, God. My accusers have packed the courtroom; it’s judgment time. Take your place on the bench, reach for your gavel, throw out the false charges against me. I’m ready, confident in your verdict: “Innocent.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭7:6-8‬ ‭MSG‬‬ Heavenly Father, you are a righteous judge. You set everything right with my family and me. I will neither be ashamed nor disadvantaged.
