Prayer is a direct line communication to God and a warrior is someone who is experienced in battle. Although the term “prayer warrior” is not found in Scripture, it is a person who is committed to praying for others.
There is a constant daily battle of good and evil every day and because it is a battle, the term Prayer Warrior is appropriate to use. This battle is all around us and many are unaware. This is not a battle between countries fighting over money or land but a spiritual battle. A spiritual battle, where the forces of good and evil are fighting for the souls of this world.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, Ephesians 6:12.
As Christians, 2 Timothy 2:1, we are to stand strong and pray. However, some believers have a unique and special ability to continually pray for the heart and souls of mankind, as well as , the basic daily needs. These people are Prayer Warriors.
Prayer Warriors develop a heart of God, the heart for prayer, the heart for people, and the heart for Christ’s Church. Continually praying and trusting God to answer each prayer according to His perfect will and His perfect timing. Prayer is not passive. It is on the front lines of a real spiritual battle and is one of the most exciting, interactive thing you can do as a believer. To engage with the forces of heaven, against the forces of this world, and waving a flag of victory for the battle belongs to the Lord who conquers ALL.
Prayer Warriors intercede daily, but just like with anything it takes practice. To get better, a Prayer Warrior must simply pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Never stop praying. All believers are to pray in the Name of Jesus. He is The Christ and we trust in Him for all.
Are your thoughts and prayers filled with requests from others? Does you heart constantly burn for the needs of others? Are you a prayer warrior and didn’t even realize it? You’ve been given a ministry of intercession and through prayer you can be used by God to touch the lives of people that you know and those that you have never met.
Challenge yourself to a “30-day Call to Action.” For the next 30 days pray for anything, everything, and everyone! Pray without stopping (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Its not as difficult as it may initially seem, simply share you thoughts with God and hope for positive outcomes in every situation.
