“PRAYER: The ULTIMATE Defense Weapon against Evil!”
Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike. I am in chains now, still preaching this message as God’s ambassador. So pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for Him, as I should.
We are living in a very wicked, evil and perverted world. And we are facing a new year that holds a lot of uncertain scenarios. In some instances it is exciting to see how biblical prophecies interact with our day and time. And in some instances it is frightening to see how the wickedness, evilness and perversion escalates and catapults us into perilous times.
The Apostle Paul is telling the Ephesians, in no uncertain terms, that PRAYER should permeate their lives. They should be the ULTIMATE PRAYER WARRIOR, ALWAYS alert, and CONSTANTLY in PERSISTENT prayer for ALL believers EVERYWHERE. This is a message for us today, we NEED to be diligent in our intercessory prayers and support each other with PERSISTENT and COMPASSIONATE pleas for ALL our Brothers and Sisters in Christ, who either are or will be under persecution and maybe even facing death at the hands of wicked, evil people.
We could very well face the same scenario, more quickly than you think. Just being a Christian puts you at a very high risk. This sinful, old world doesn’t want a godly influence, because that would put its way of life into jeopardy. We might have a Christian influence that would thwart the plans of the wicked, evil, ungodly council of this world. So their goal is to do away with the Christians and their GODLY influence. You can see this happening in the United States, in every facet of our lives, we are being persecuted because of who we are. My question is: How far will it go?
When a Child of the Living God lives with a prayerful attitude, the devil knows that, he has to flee, because PRAYER is the ULTIMATE WEAPON against evil. A Child of God gains STRENGTH, COURAGE, and POWER through STRONG FAITHFUL, TRUSTING, PRAYER. So let’s become STRONG, FAITHFUL, and TRUSTING PRAYER WARRIORS and pray for each other.
Paul also asked that the Ephesian believers pray for him too. He ask that they pray that he would be able to BOLDLY explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike. He said that even though he was in chains he was STILL preaching that message as God’s ambassador. We MUST be in CONSTANT prayer for ALL of our PREACHERS, EVANGELISTS and MISSIONARIES as they BOLDLY proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. Pray that, no matter what circumstances they face, they will BOLDLY PREACH the WORD of the LIVING GOD.
If you are a part of this lost and dying world, and have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, you are in jeopardy of spending ALL eternity in Hell with ALL the wicked and evil people. You will experience; heartache, misery, torment, torture and unbearable pain, forever with NO escape or release from your suffering. However, you NOW have the opportunity to turn your destiny around by: CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become one of His PRAYER WARRIORS. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
