Going to War in Prayer

Our new movie WAR ROOM is about the power of prayer and building prayer strategies. Why is a prayer strategy important? Because we have a very real enemy that wants to stay hidden from you but at the same time, he wants to distract, deceive, and divide you from seeking the Lord and from building healthy relationships with your spouse, children, or other people.

We have to learn how to fight in prayer. It’s interesting when you look at Scripture, Joshua would pray first before engaging in a battle. For example, before attempting to conquer Jericho, he sought the Lord first.

Esther, before going into the king, a decision that could have taken her life because she was not invited before the king, asked the people to spend three days fasting and praying first.

Before Jesus chose His disciples, He spent time in prayer first.

What does that tell us? Before you engage in an issue, a battle, or whatever your problems are, spend time in prayer first. Go to your war room—your prayer closet—and seek the Lord.

When you commit to prayer and you seek God first, you are going before the One that knows the solution and can help you through any circumstance.

So how do we fight? We fight in prayer, first seeking in our war room the One who can handle anything. Trust Him, keep your faith in Him, and go to war in prayer.
