Sadly, too many Christians feel the hardest thing they do is pray.
Am I alone in this? No, I didn’t think so.
Why should this be?
Isn’t prayer our duty? Shouldn’t it be the joy of our lives? After all, an old Puritan said, “Prayer is the breath of a regenerate soul.”
Christ gives us the privilege of coming before the throne of grace and voicing all our requests, cares, concerns, yes, and even complaints and we are guaranteed help in time of trouble (Hebrews 4:16). And isn’t all of life trouble to some measure?
Then, why is it so hard?
It is hard, dear Christian sister, because we are involved in a spiritual battle that is raging without and within. The world, the flesh, and the devil, battle against us to keep us from the One who loves us.
I am convinced most of us, most of the time, aren’t aware of the spiritual conflict that wages against us.
Paul understood it. He outlines our battle plan from The Commander-in-Chief.
Put on the whole armor of God: Ephesians 6:10-17.
Once armored up, ready for battle, your orders are: Ephesians 6:18.
Pray at all times in the Spirit
With all prayers and supplications
With all perseverance
For all the saints
So Sister, armor up! Prepare for battle. The Spirit helps you pray (Romans 8:26). You are not alone in the battle. Jesus has already won the war and He said we are more than conquerors through Him (Romans 8:37)!
Pray with me. Struggle through it. You will win battles. God is listening.
He is a God who hears and does!
You are loved
