Warfare Spirituality

SylviaMany Christians are exhausted from running the rat race, even the Christian rat race.

Many are weighed down by family demands and tensions. They need strengthening and refreshment to receive God's enabling grace for each day. Pray this for yourself or others who need a fresh touch of the power of the Holy Spirit. You are blessed to be a blessing, and prayer is one of the most powerful ways you can bless others.

Pray this way:

Abba, I come alongside _______ and lift them into Your presence. Thank You for Your love for them. You have given Your word that You have set apart Your godly ones for Yourself. I claim that for _______ today. Give them a fresh touch of Your love in all its fullness. Meet all their needs today, because those who seek the Lord will not lack any good thing.

Please give _______wisdom and understanding, so that they will take only Your yoke and make only the plans that agree with Your divine purposes. Grant them Your favor and blessing. Increase their confidence in Your ability and presence at work in their lives to evict all fear and doubt.

Father, ________ is tired and needs Your divine strength, because they are running at the edge of their endurance. Heal and strengthen them body, soul, and spirit. Foil Satan's plans to attack in physical and emotional areas that are vulnerable. Let their roots tap deeply into You and enable them to keep on keeping on in the demands on them. Lighten their steps; let them mount up with wings as an eagle, as they wait on You. Reveal any sin that is hindering them, and speak to their heart, as You draw them closer to You. Give them grace for today, and then tomorrow give a whole new supply of Your provision of Yourself. Give them Your sweet presence each moment, and let them feel secure in You. When they don't know the outcome of their situation, show them that in You it is safe not to know, because You are good.

Father, overcome _______'s fears with Your perfect love. Heal ________ where there is pain and hurt. Give them a breakthrough in the situations closest to their hearts, the ones that have wearied them most. Touch and restore the places that have been bruised and shut down. Open them up to new trust in You. Press through walls of disappointment, self-protection, separation, and pain. Minister reconciliation, so that all relationships might enjoy Your unity and sweet fellowship. Release Your fresh touch into each life that has claim upon their spiritual, emotional, and practical responsibility.

We come to Your cross and hide there from all stresses and pressures. Your glory outshines all the plans of the enemy to oppress _______. Mighty Warrior, reveal the real battle that they are up against. Let them rest in You, and stand steadfast, and see that the battle is the Lord's. Let no fiery arrows pierce their safe place in Your refuge. Give them confidence that no weapon formed against them will prosper.

Place _______ in the refreshing stream of Living Water flowing from Your throne. Refresh them each moment in Jesus. Make them oaks of righteousness planted by streams of water, whose leaves do not wither. Bless them according to Your perfect will, as You watch over their way. Show them Your power and the glory of Your great love. In Jesus' name, Amen.
