Prayer is hard at times

and we do not wrestle with flesh and blood Paul said, “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.”-{Ephesians 6:12}. “Epaphras, who is one of you and a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, sends you greetings. [He is] always striving for you in his prayers, praying with genuine concern, [pleading] that you may [as people of character and courage] stand firm, [spiritually mature] and fully assured in all the will of God.”-{Colossians 4:12}

  • The battle for your mind is an attack on your faith to tempt you to attack the character of God through doubting God, His Word, yielding to discouragement, or appealing to at times “self-righteousness” to somehow seek to manipulate God into bending to your will and what you want, rather than His will!



  • Prayer is Conflict; against demonic forces- {Read Eph 6:12}; Against a world system opposed to the glory of God. -{Rom 12:1}; Against self, the enemy within!-{Read Luke 18:1}

  • Prayer is Confidence in God answering according to His will-{Read 1 John 5:14-15}

  • Prayers Promises- Encouragement To feed your faith such as His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us HIS PRECIOUS AND MAGNIFICENT PROMISES.”-{2 Peter 1:3-4}.

  • Prayer’s Privilege cost Jesus Christ His life so that you could have access to the Father! -{Read Romans 5:1-2}

  • Prayers Goal– The Honor, Fame of the Father’, His Kingdom being done in the matter, His will be done as the clearly defined ultimate goal!-{Matthew 6:9}. The heart of Prayer is revealed to us by the LORD Jesus. “Father… not My will Yours be done.”{Luke 22:42}. Our will, wants, desires, life, and circumstances, all in submission to Him, that His will be the focus and finished objective in the matter and my life!!

  • Prayers Partner- The Holy Spirit intercedes for us when we do not know how or what to pray. What glorious encouragement. We are not on our own-{Read Romans 8:26-28} PRAY ON…. and when it’s hardest to pray? Ask Him to help you to Pray on!!! And even that request is an act of faith as it is dependent upon the LORD. And in and of itself is PRAYER TO Him, as you turn your mind and heart to Him in dependence. And He honors faith in Him-{Read Hebrews 11:6}

Prayer is Submission to Him-Our will, wants, desires, life, and circumstances, all in submission to Him, that His will be the focus and finished objective in the matter and my life!!”Father… not My will Yours be done.”{Luke 22:42}. And if or when we find ourselves having difficulty praying that, then ask Him for forgiveness and to incline your will to submission to His will… and that too is prayer!

PAUSE AND…..PRAY! Thanking Him for the access you have to Him and the privilege to be able to bring all things and everything to Him in prayer-{Read Philippians 4:6}. 🙂

God bless,
