Romans 8:26 A similar thing happens when we pray. We are weak and do not know how to pray, so the Spirit steps in and articulates prayers for us with groaning too profound for words. Romans 12:12 Do not forget to rejoice, for hope is always just around the corner. Hold up through the hard times that are coming, and devote yourselves to prayer. Ephesians 6:18 Pray always. Pray in the Spirit. Pray about everything in every way you know how! And keeping all this in mind, pray on behalf of God’s people. Keep on praying feverishly, and be on the lookout until evil has been stayed. Hebrews 5:7 When Jesus was on the earth, a man of flesh and blood, He offered up prayers and pleas, groans and tears to the One who could save Him from death. He was heard because He approached God with reverence
James 5:15-16 Prayers offered in faith will restore them from sickness and bring them to health. The Lord will lift them up from the floor of despair; and if the sickness is due to sin, then God will forgive their sins. 16 So own up to your sins to one another and pray for one another. In the end, you may be healed. Your prayers are powerful when they are rooted in a righteous life. 1 Pet 3:12 For the Lord watches over the righteous, and His ears are attuned to their prayers.
But His face is set against His enemies; He will punish evildoers.[a]
Jude 20-21 You, however, should stand firm in the love of God, constructing a life within the holy faith, praying the Spirit’s prayer, as you wait eagerly for the mercy of our Lord Jesus the Anointed, which leads to eternal life. Revelation 5:8 And when He took it, the four living creatures and twenty-four elders fell prostrate before the Lamb. They worshiped Him, and each one held a harp and golden bowls filled with incense (the prayers of God’s holy people). Revelation 8:3-4 An eighth messenger came and stood before the altar carrying a golden censer. He received a large portion of incense to complement the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar that sits in front of the throne. 4 From the hand of the eighth messenger, the smoke of the incense mixed with the prayers of God’s people and billowed up before God.
Yes Brother's and Sisters God gave us His Armor. Prayer actives the precious gift of armor that God has given us. I say this because the verse directly after the armor of God gives us a command. Verse 18 tells us Pray always. Pray in the Spirit, and Pray about everything. We pray as we were taught by Jesus. When we pray we have the assurance the God hears us. Remember pray is a two way conversation between you and God. This means you must be silent so God can speak. Otherwise you are just creating a monologue. God wants to speak and God does speak. He tells us my sheep know my voice and another they will not follow. The only way to know His voice is to let Him speak. Spend time with God. Your relationship with God can only grow by getting to know him. In physical relationships you spend time getting to know each other on soul level, emotional level and when you marry physical level. This process takes time. It is the same with God and us. If we want to know Him on a deeper level we must be willing to spend time with Him. God tells His secrets to those He is intimate with. So if you want to know God's Secrets you must know God. What will you do with the Armor you have been given. It's time fight Warriors the battle is waging.
