“Heavenly Father, Your warrior prepares for battle. Putting on the whole Armor of God! I put on the Girdle of Truth!
Intercessors prayer is fulfilling the need of praying for other people, while prayer warriors engage in a spiritual battle against Satan. When a person says a favorable prayer for another person, they intervene for them. They act as a intermediary between the person and God for a precise reason.
A prayer warrior must be on guard and recognize changes in battle intensity! A prayer warrior must recognize the times and seasons when the battle may intensify. The warrior is prepared for changes in the battle and doesn’t go into the battle unprepared. We are always in the battle!
Ephesians 3:14-21 And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
A spiritual warrior is someone who goes through life aggressively and purposefully, whether climbing mountains or wallowing through swamps. The following are a few of the core principles of being a spiritual warrior .
Prayer is a gift that we can give each other, when we can give nothing else. We can ask God’s blessings, his intervention or his will to be done, even when we do not know the specific details of what or for whom we are praying . Prayer is the act of reaching out to God in faith.
Intercession or intercessory prayer is the act of praying to a deity or to a saint in heaven on behalf of oneself or others.
The definition is basic: an intercessor is someone who prays, petitions, or begs God in favor of another person. It’s a Biblical concept that appears often.
Forms of prayer . The tradition of the Catholic Church highlights four basic elements of Christian prayer : (1) Prayer of Adoration/Blessing, (2) Prayer of Contrition/Repentance, (3) Prayer of Thanksgiving/Gratitude, and ( 4 ) Prayer of Supplication/Petition/Intercession.
The gift of Intercession is the God-given ability to consistently pray on behalf of and for others, seeing frequent and specific results. Set a daily time to pray for spiritual victories over the challenges and obstacles of life.
The Spiritual gift of Intercessor is the special ability God gives to use prayer with confidence and power to intervene on behalf of an individual or group. Groups need someone with this gift to remain intentional about inviting God’s presence and provision in to bless, protect, and guide other members of the body.
The Intercession of the Spirit is the Christian belief that the Holy Spirit helps and guides believers who search for God in their hearts.
Jesus taught, “When you pray , do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men … but when you pray , go into your room, close the door and pray to your father who is unseen.”
The most common prayer among Christians is the “Lord’s Prayer “, which according to the gospel accounts (e.g. Matthew 6:9-13) is how Jesus taught his disciples to pray .
Prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us, and looking ahead at 2021, I believe it has never been more important for God’s people to be on our knees. So when they came to Jesus, as told in Matthew 6, they didn’t say, “Teach us another prayer .” They said, “Lord, teach us to pray .”
