LORD, TEACH US TO PRAY
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:10,11
Nearly every believer knows about this scripture and the wearing of the armor of God, but the armor of God does not empower you, it only protects you, praying in the Spirit empowers you to defeat the powers of darkness!
The apostle Paul told the church at Ephesus to pray always in the Spirit, something that is usually neglected, but to leave this very important command out is like going to war fully dressed in armor but without your weapon! Praying in the Spirit releases God's power and anointing that is able to break yokes of bondage and set the captives free!
We don't wage war with flesh and blood because our battle is with spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places. As supernatural new creations in Christ we war in the Spirit, pulling down spiritual strongholds in the power of His might!
And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. Ephesians 6:17,18
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
