Prayer IS The Battle


Now What?

Now we come to the part I don’t hear anyone talking about. Once you’re dressed in your armor, what next? Let’s look back at the Guidebook (the Bible):

“Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion.” Ephesians 6:18a (nlt)

“Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believ- ers everywhere.” Ephesians 6:18b (not)

“And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.” Ephesians 6:19 (not)

Lord, what do you want me to learn from this? Have I misun- derstood prayer? Often in the past I have used prayer as a last resort to my struggles. Does this teach me that prayer is what I need to be doing as I face every new obstacle?…

Prayer IS the Battle

Three times in the next two verses we are instructed to pray! Pray all the time (verse 18a). is goes along with the com- mand in 1 essalonians 5:17: “Pray without ceasing.” I pray all the time. I pray when I drive (with my eyes open), when I go to sleep, and when I wake up. I pray when I’m worried (don’t you?), when I have a sick friend, and when my children have me con- cerned. Never stop praying. Once you’re dressed for battle, hit your knees. at’s truly where the real battle lies.

Lord, thank You for opening my eyes to where the true battle is. Please remind me of this until I learn to make it a habit in my daily life. Nudge me when I forget and try to solve my problems without Your input. In Jesus’s name, amen.

“My Search for Prayers Satan Hates,” by Steve Hemphill – Pages 28 – 29

About Steve Hemphill

Steve Hemphill grew up in Mason, a small town in Central Texas. He graduated high school in 1975, and received a B.A. in Marketing from Abilene Christian University in 1979. He married his college sweetheart immediately after graduating, and is the father of three boys. He was the founder and owner of a successful technology company in Northeast Texas for almost 30 years, with over 30 employees and annual revenue of over $6 million. Steve was the son of a missionary until his Father passed away in 2000. He and his brother searched for the “Last Will and Testament” and found it in a safe that contained a sealed envelope which stated, “If you find this after my death, do NOT open it, destroy it, it’s not important, Dad”. This led him to research what the Bible has to say about “Heaven” resulting in his first book, My Search for the Real Heaven. He later wrote My Search for Prayers Satan Hates, a detailed look at the Bible’s teaching on demons, prayer and spiritual warfare. His speaking career began in 2009. Since selling his business, Steve now dedicates his time to speaking, writing and leading retreats. His outreaches and inspirational events include sharing “God’s Stories”. He has lectured in many states and several foreign countries on a variety of topics. He keeps audiences spellbound and focused with his fast-paced, enthusiastic presentations and compelling real-life stories.
