Stop, Drop...and Pray!

Ephesians 6: 10-20 addresses the power we possess during times of spiritual warfare.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.  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 firm.  Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.

Look at verse 18 again.  This small nugget laying among the other treasured weapons tells us that prayer hooks all our armor together and strengthens each piece. I have a dear loved one going through an intense spiritual battle. The most significant thing I can do is pray, pray, pray and encourage them to pray and be immersed in God's Word. My page might seem a little dark, but I really wanted to express the dark, chaos that comes near to us when a real battle is in full assault. I put the section regarding our impenetrable armor in a light, bright color to signify the certain hope for victory that is ours. We will win because the victory is His and He's already won it!
