2009-06-13 - The Prayers of the Saints
The Spiritual Warfare Series, Part 12In this installment, we study the last weapon God provides for spiritual warfare, the prayers of the saints. Wit out prayer, all that has gone before is empty, for it is in communion and dependency on God that we are able to use and depend on the armor He provides.
Without putting on the armor, our prayers are powerless. We must put on the one and do the other. Stedman lists three basic facts inherent to prayer adapted here:
And so we end where we started, not with ourselves, but with God. We are not called to fight, but are called to live the life that God desires to provide for us, His children. And as we live as he calls us to, then we will stand firm, we will see victory over the enemy, and we will be able to find peace, joy and contentment in our relationship to our Father God.
The source of our security, then is not in systems, superstitions and suppositions. Instead, it is in these truths:
GOD LOVES US!
