Becoming a Prayer Warrior

How to wage effective warfare against the enemy

An introduction into the Christian faith is also an introduction into spiritual warfare. Satan’s desire to exalt his throne above all the angels of God (Isa. 14:12-15), and his activities of violence, dishonesty, and pride (Ezek. 28:13-18) precipitated his forceful expulsion from heaven. Now, here on earth the fight continues. Unsuspecting people are included as pawns of Satan, and believers are despised and attacked in an attempt to hurt God.

To be an effective prayer warrior we must be strong in faith, know our authority and use our weaponry. Though our enemy, the devil, “prowls around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour” (1 Pet. 5:8), we have been given formidable spiritual weapons that will ensure our victory in this warfare (2 Cor. 10:3-5).
