In life, there will be times when battles ensue. No believer has a guarantee of a pain-free, bed of roses life where troubles do not arise. In fact, the opposite is true. We will have to engage in battles. The type of battles you fight are not won with armor, guns and bullets. Every battle that we fight is spiritual in nature.
You may be attacked in your health when a doctor gives you a negative report. You may have to fight for your children when you see them being lead astray by the tricks of the devil. When your finances are not as you desire, you may need to engage in battle to recover everything that God promised you. The list could go on and on. Whenever your peace, joy, hope, prosperity and love are being attacked, you cannot sit idly by and let it happen. You have to fight.
Just like the tribes of Israel did, they took stock of who their warriors were. You have to do the same for your life. When you get into one of life’s battles, you should already know who will stand with you and fight the good fight of faith. These must be mighty warriors who know how to pray and stand strong with you. Identify these people in your life and enlist them as your prayer warriors.
