“Lord, we need a generation of believers who are not ashamed of the gospel. We need an army of believers who hate to be lukewarm and will stand on Your Word above all else. Raise ’em up, Lord. Raise them up.” War Room: Prayer Is a Powerful Weapon by Chris Fabry
The minute we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior we enter a battlefield.
The battlefield is our Christian life, the enemy is Satan, the target is our soul and the battle plan is God’s Word.
The trick is recognizing the true enemy. He is a master at disguising himself as our boss, the mean neighbor down the street, the old bully from high school, or the co-worker who is always nit-picking at everything we do.
But God’s Word says that we are not to go to war against flesh and blood, against people, against the tangible things we can see because they are just tools.
This would be like an army choosing to go to war against machine guns, grenades, and missiles; and thinking that once they eradicated those that they had won the battle. Weaponry is just a tool. The enemy is the one using the weaponry. He is the one we need to defeat.
Over the next several months I want to provide verses for targeting specific prayers for our husbands, children, co-workers, neighbors, neighborhoods, and so on. These are in addition to the Prayer Challenges we do each month.
But I also want to target specific areas of our personal lives, because we need to bathe ourselves in prayer as much as we need to bathe others in prayer. Satan is battling for your soul as much as he is battling for the souls of your friends and loved ones!
This is why I provided 10 verses on strength last month. We will also look at verses on joy, peace and more.
Because while the Christian life is a battle, God never meant for us to live under pressure and stressed out. What kind of a testimony would that be? Why would anyone want to become a Christian if all they see are a bunch of stressed out Christians under pressure all the time?
Paul said, “For the kingdom of God is…righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
