Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
There is no greater work than a prayer-filled life. In Ephesians 6, Paul teaches about putting on the armor of God as protection against the enemy. In addition to putting on the armor of God, Paul encourages the believers in Ephesus to pray for their fellow Christians. Paul knew that prayer was essential in activating God’s armor. Oswald Chambers says this: Prayer does not equip us for the greater works – prayer IS the greater work. Everything that occurs in the visible world is directly connected to a wrestling match being waged in the invisible, spiritual world. A cunning enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that is dear to us. Only weapons divinely authorized by God can have any effect in a battle like this. Satan will fail when we arm ourselves with the power of prayer!
