Calling All Believers to Prayer!

Battle prayers copy

Commentary By:  Gordon King

These are the times spoken of by the prophets of old, of ages gone by.  Times when wickedness and evil permeate the globe, where unrighteousness and impurity dominate the landscape. 

As Christians we must stand and fight the enemy, not with worldly weapons, but with the word of God, with prayers!  Just who is this enemy?  The enemy is not of flesh and blood, but of spirit, evil spirits!

I am calling on all Christians to stand firm in your faith, to fight the good fight, and to battle the enemy with prayer.  I am sounding the trumpet, the battle trumpet!  Now is the time, the battle has begun, ready yourselves, stay alert and stand firm! 

We need prayers in the world, we need to fight the battle and stand firm!  This is not the time to sit idle and watch the world pass us by.  God has given us tools to use, so lets use them!   God is for us, but we need to be communicating with Him.  We need to be asking, not just sitting back hoping!

1 Corinthians 16:13

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”

Exodus 14:14

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.

Ephesians 6:10-18

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Believers are in the world for many reasons, one is to spread the gospel, but is that all?  No!  Scripture tells us to fight the good fight!  To battle the enemy, to be alert, and to pray with all kinds of prayers and requests and for all the Lord’s people!

Lord God in heaven hear my prayer as I come before You with a humble heart.  You know that I am not perfect, yet I seek Your face.  Thank you Lord for being You, thank You for Your loving mercy, forgiveness, and grace.  You are the one and only Lord of the universe.  You are eternal and everlasting, Your words are truth, and Your ways are pure.  You are holy and righteous, You are supreme!  Without You we are nothing, but with You we can do all things!

Words cannot describe how I feel about You, nor can they describe just how awesome You really are!  If I had the words then I would tell You, but I do not.  Just know oh Great and Mighty One, that I give You my life, and I submit to all Your ways.  I know that You are everything, and I am nothing without You.  I give You all praise, worship, and glory!

God of the universe, Jesus Christ, I pray for You to enable within each and every believer, the ability to withstand the devil and his demons.  I pray for You to give us the strength and the courage to overcome!  Give us increased faith, words of knowledge, and visions of Your will.  Do not let the evil ones lead us into temptation, nor let them place doubts within our minds.  Stand with us in battle, surround us with Your mighty angels, and fight our battles for us!

Satan and his demons cannot stand against You oh Lord God, for You have created them, and You have defeated them!  You and only You are all-powerful!  I pray for You to give Your children insight into what is needed to defeat the enemy in the world, to stand firm and grow in our faith.  Give us power to subdue the enemy and crush them under our feet!  Only You can do this Lord, for we are weak and not able on our own.

Give us the power to battle the enemy, to withstand the fiery darts, and to shine Your light through us.  Embolden Your children with all that You can to ensure our success, and to bring glory to Your Holy name!  Open the heavens and let Your glory shine upon the earth for all to see.

Great and Mighty Lord God, instill within us the power of the Holy Spirit, in love, truth, and righteousness!  Fill us with Your Spirit and guide our paths.  Protect all believers with Your wings, and show the world that You are God!  Defeat the enemy and drive them from Your presence. 

I know that not all in the world will come to salvation, I know that it is You who allows all who are able to believe.  For without You this is not possible.  I pray for You to soften the hearts of the enemy, to give them visions and dreams of the truth, and to bring all who will accept You to salvation!

Jesus Christ, You are my first Love, my Savior, and my Friend!  I cannot tell you just how much I love you Lord, but it is more than words can say!  You know my heart Lord, You know where I stand and what I believe.  In You I trust, in You I place all of my faith.  Thank You God for hearing me, thank You for listening!   Amen

Joshua 1:9

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

1 Timothy 6:12

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  2. In Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
    I concur, a wonderful prayer, Gordon.
    We as Christians must focus on the blessed HOPE not give up our birth right to eternal life to this pagan nation, to this pagan culture that is rising in alarming rate. Plead the blood of Jesus when in doubt, plead for His salvation, repent, know that little voice inside all of us (our conscious) saying NO that’s not right, no that’s not the thing to do. Our guilt trip is our conscious telling us we did wrong in the eyes of God. Our conscious tells us, warns us before hand. We must pray for resilience to overcome the tendencies. And also know our weaknesses and confess to a merciful God who forgives us. He knows we aren’t perfect.
    We must know the difference between good and evil, not accept man’s words but God’s truths. Today evil is hovering over us like a dust storm that won’t go away. Jesus told us not to follow man, but be weary of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing, by their fruits you shall know them. To be alert and watchful, always in His Presence, always in prayer and thanksgiving.

    There is a new religion emerging to co-exist with one another and although it seems nice to the ear it’s not, it’s a lie, it’s to trick people into submission to their god(s). Our Christian (Jesus) beliefs are being abolish for one world religion on the sect of man being implemented. All under the banner of a New Age. The Age of Enlightenment.
    In 2012 the Mayan calendar ended, it didn’t destroy the world physically, but brought in the ‘Age of Aquarius’ spiritually and a deeper sense of the ‘fallen away’ of the church.
    New Ager’s say, “We are all God and as such perfect.”, Satan first said this in Gen.3:5. The Holy Scriptures’ also says in Romans 3:23- “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” We are not perfect (yet).
    They say “We are all co-creators and can create our own world.” Scriptures’ says “Know that the Lord, He is God; It IS He who has made us, and not we ourselves;” Psalms 100:3. These are just two examples of them twisting the words of Our Lord to fit their agenda. And it’s in full steam ahead. All of us feel it, the world as we knew it IS NOT the same.

    Pray for the power of Jesus to be in each of us for strength and endurance. Pray Gordon’s prayer it’s beautifully written, if words escapes you. For from this day forward things are going to get hairier. We my friends, are on borrowed time NOW is the time to get your life in order and TRUST God. He is in control and IS always there for those who seek and believe in Him.

    The mindset – “A passive spirit is the most easily controlled spirit.” a quote from Jesse Penn-Lewis. And how true and sad. We can not afford to surrender to this passive spirit, for everything is getting more confusing, more chaotic, evil in this ‘end times’ we’re living in.
    As you have so clearly stated from Scriptures’ G., we are not battling against flesh and blood but with evil entities wanting our demise. Getting into The Holy Scriptures and studying the word, know it in your heart what is truth will get us prepared for the challenges ahead. A relationship comes from placing faith in Jesus Christ and knowing for yourself what His word says.
    The day is coming when the Book will be confiscated and what we have absorb from its pages is the only thing we’ll have; apart from Jesus in our hearts. Our traditions, our identity, our national pride, our family unit, our individuality is being eroded and transformed into one global mindset. We have entered the ‘Twilight Zone’ and this is no joke. We’re in a battlefield and only through His grace, only through and with Jesus can we make it through it all.
    PRAYER is a POWERFUL gift we all have, lets use it! The Christian message is LOVE and Jesus’ assurance “…and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.’ Amen.” Matt. 28:20
    God bless us all.

    Thanks again Gordon, I went off on a tangent again….
    God’s spirit is warning us to be prepared and believe in the power of prayer.
    Love your prayer, will remember it often. God bless my friend.

  3. Amen! I’m with you my friend! Together Christ followers around the globe will stand and fight the good fight until our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ calls “come up hither!” and takes us home! On that blessed day, we will meet in the air. Then we will know that it was all worth it, and so we will be with the Lord forever. Come Quickly Lord Jesus. It could be tonight!!!!

  4. Thanks for your comment SweetJava!

    We are in the midst of a battle, and the battle is becoming more intense as time goes on. The saddest part of all this are believers who don’t or wish not to see it, even though scripture warns us and alerts us to be aware, to stay alert, and to know the times!

    None of us are perfect that’s for sure, yet if you do stumble, if you fall, then stand back up, shake off the dust, and move ahead on that straight and narrow path which leads to salvation and eternity. We cannot do it on our own, we need God to do it for us, through us. Without Him we will fail, but with Him we can accomplish anything!

    God bless and Maranatha!

  5. Thank you Lyndsey!

    The time is soon coming, lets stand together as one, as the body of Christ, with one mind and one spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ!

    God bless!
