10 Prayers for Your Spouse When Faced with Spiritual Warfare
Over the past few years, my hubby had been faced with spiritual battles here and there and all started when he was a child. I took it upon myself to spend time and seek the Lord for spiritual guidance on how we can both battle this warfare. You know what the Lord said to me, read 2 Chronicles 20:15 (NIV) – “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s“
So rather than focusing my prayers on constant spiritual binding, or praying for hours upon hours and most times keep repeating the same prayer after running out of words, I decided to focus on very short, simple and sincere prayers the reaches God’s throne. Remember that spiritual warfare is real and that the enemy’s plan right from the first day is to steal, kill and destroy.
Over the next couple of weeks, I pondered on these words and came to realize that truly the battles we face is not ours to fight, but all spiritual warfare we may have faced at some point in our life’s or facing now belongs to God. He already won the battles and given us victory through the death and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ.
I pray that as you pray these prayers, that the Lord God Almighty will come to our rescue and give us victory, In Jesus Name – and the people of God says – Amen.
