Praying Against the Enemy

I was talking to my prayer warrior mother-in-law this morning, whom I respect very much, and she reminded me how we need to continuously pray against the enemy (Satan).

The bible says that "the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy" John 10:10. We are constantly in a spiritual battle, where Satan is not only trying to plot FEAR in our hearts, but he tries to take away the joy and the blessings that God has in store for us.

May we be fervent in our prayers, not only for things but against "the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" Ephesians 6:12. Pray that the Lord will surround your family, especially your precious children, with His angels and protect you from Satan's schemes and lies.
