“They” Are Serious About Praying Against You So What Are You Going to Do About It

by | Feb 27, 2019

1 Kings 8:28  Yet give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, Lord my God.  Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.


I know we have talked about prayer several times over the years, but God has just really impressed on my heart that it is still something we neglect.  I am not suggesting that we sit and chant all day the same things over and over to God I am suggesting getting more intentional in our prayer lives.  

Satan is after you and your family and friends.  He is after your church and our nations!  He hates everyone God created!  Everyone!  That is why it is mentioned in Ephesians 6:12, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”  Your battle isn’t with other people it is a spiritual battle.  Now don’t get me wrong, there are times that some people may choose to join the enemy but you must pray for them and pray that God will work in their lives.  We need to take prayer seriously.  This is not a time to shake in fear, it is a time to grasp that God is All-Powerful and He is on your side, so get in agreement with Him and pray!  He’s got this, but we must pray!

I recently took our “guest room” in our house and turned it into my “Prayer Room” or if you have seen the movie, my “War Room”.  When I had first set it up I told God, “you are going to have to help me with this because I’m having a tough time seeing me fit a lot of time in this room, I am so used to praying as I go throughout the day and I still do.  I usually have a pretty tight schedule, my daughter-in-law laughed one day when she looked at the schedule I wrote down for the day because it was divided up to every half hour.  Some days are like that.  But, I set the room up and I prayed over the room and house and I went in and laid face down on the floor and started praying for God to help me in my new journey in prayer.  I started praying for everyone and everything on my list and then anything I felt God brought to mind and by the time I was done praying that day I didn’t want to leave the room.  Now, I feel as though something is terribly missing if I have somehow missed it.  I have started scheduling my time in there so it is a priority.  I am not saying you have to designate a room in your house but find a special quiet place to get alone with God.  Pour your heart out to Him but make sure you also take the time to ask Him what is on His heart and what His dreams are for you and your family, friends, church, country…….  The key is; you must be intentional about taking the time to do it!  

I want to share a quote with you from the book “What Happens When Women Pray”:

“An occult high priest was quoted in our local newspaper as saying that the churches of America have given up the supernatural.  They don’t deal in the supernatural; they just deal in plans and programs and social activities.  He said that every human being is created with a supernatural vacuum, and since Christians aren’t doing anything in the realm of the supernatural he feels that witchcraft is a reasonable substitute for Christianity.”  Wow!  If that doesn’t move you to pray, I don’t know what will!  We are called to pray!  We have access to the Throne of God!  Ladies, I don’t know about you but that stirs up something inside me that says, “not today satan!”  Today I will take my prayer time seriously and today I will go boldly to my Father in Heaven and I will do battle in the spiritual realm for myself, my family, friends, churches and country and everyone and everything else God brings to my mind!  This is war!  Being a prayer warrior isn’t just for the little old lady down the street, it is for you!

Let’s take the challenge today!  Let’s raise up an Army of people praying as God moves in our hearts!  Pray for God to bring revival and change!  Pray for those victories that you gave up on a long time ago!  It’s not over yet!  God is and always will be on His throne.  He is waiting to hear from us!  Grab prayer requests off the prayer board on here and pray for them!  Whatever it is that is on your heart I would encourage you to not give up.  Determine today, that you will get intentional about your time alone with Him then we can know that truly His best is yet to come!
