When you don’t know what to say, simply be honest as you pray to God – We hold the key that can unlock doors of doubt and despair. Each day we are engaging in a daily battle that surrounds us.
This is a journey of faith – We can rely on God’s power and Holy Spirit to guide every challenge and test we face. The battle belongs to our God, and He is on our side. But, our priority comes in making prayer an integral part of our Christian walk.
Connect with other strong, mature and consistent prayer warriors – We already have been given the authority to pray into any situation. The bible is our weapon to fight the enemy with, so that he does not attack us in our weakness and fear. There is power in praying together.
Understand the seasons – Stand faithfully together as you believe. At times you will grow spiritually and mentally when you plug into God as your source. And other times, when you are unable to have the strength to pray, you will know that others are standing in the gap for you.
Keep looking up – Not allowing trials or ordeals to side track you, but focus on God and pray scripture to counteract discouragement and despondency. Fight in the spirit against the enemy and his plots that invade your life. At the same time, remain totally dependent and close to God.
