Who are Prayer Warriors?

That is a term that was thrown around in church circles referring to a human who was given to prayer. Every Christian should be a prayer warrior and a praise promoter.

We have to count the cost of what we subject our mind to. Paul described our bodies as the temple of the Holy Spirit. He said it was our reasonable service to submit our bodies as a living sacrifice. The more we yield our members to fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit working in us, the more likely we are to see, experience and function in the gifts, manifestations and dispensations of Holy Spirit. It is God’s desire that we receive insight from Holy Spirit by a word of wisdom, word of knowledge, prophecy, gifts of healing, special faith, diversity of tongues, interpretation, working of miracles, and discerning of spirits. If we give God place, rejecting unfruitful behavior and recreation, we will experience God working in and through us mightily.

This is how we eliminate wasteful behavior. The Psalms are a good example of praise to God. If we look at Jesus’ example and see David’s examples, we understand that prayer is essential. We come to God acknowledging his excellence. Our words are not to impress others with our speaking. The words are formed to exalt Jesus as Lord of Lords. We praise God for his love, mercy and mighty works. The human who is entering in to pray should praise God with words from their experience. Who is God to you? That is the way you honor him and praise him with words that reflect the reality of God in your spirit.

We enter into prayer with praise. We continue as the Spirit of God leads us in asking our heavenly father for help. We start with those things the Holy Spirit brings to our thoughts. With every prayer we need to know what our request is. What we need from God can be discerned. The circumstances may not show us the root of the problem. Holy Spirit will show us how to ask God. If we have read scriptures, he will bring to our memory scriptures that confirm God’s desire to help us with our need. It is okay to ask God to help us see the source of the problem and how to pray effectual prayers. We were instructed to pray for those who are in authority over us. We should pray for our teachers, leaders, workers, and family. The wonderful truth is, Holy Spirit is eagerly waiting for us to enter into prayer so he can help!
John 14:12-14 Jesus told the disciples they would do the works he did. He said, “If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. In verse 16 he said, “I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another comforter, that he may abide with you forever. The Spirit of Truth is Holy Spirit.
In John 16:23-24 it is recorded where Jesus gave instructions how to pray after he left this earth. In that day you shall ask me nothing. Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name: ask and you shall receive that your joy may be full. Verse 27: At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not to you that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
The dynamic changed when Jesus went to sit at the right hand of God. He showed us to ask our Father God, in Jesus’ name to receive anything from God.
Matthew 6:6 For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
