How Is Your Prayer Life?

Do you struggle in your prayer life? Do you have times where you do not know what or how to pray? Do you ever feel overwhelmed and just give up?








Today is the 2 Year Blogiversary for my blog. Woohoo! <-- I just needed to get that out of the way :) .





Okay, how is your prayer life? Do you struggle?





I often find myself not sure what or how to pray. Then I will end up feeling overwhelmed by it all, like a failure and then I will end up pulling away. I just give up. Anybody else struggle like this?





I am learning (a very slow process) that the feelings I have, when I feel overwhelmed and like a failure, are from the enemy. Those feelings are not from God. He wants me to draw closer to Him so He can draw closer to me (James 4:8).





I am also learning that it is okay to not know what to pray. The Holy Spirit intercedes for us (Roman's 8:26).








Now we are going to look at Ephesians 6:10-11 to see how to stand against the enemies attacks.





Ephesians 6:10-11 NIV 





Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.





1. Find strength in the Lord
2. Trust in His mighty power
3. Put on God's armor
4. Stand strong with God
5. Deflect the enemies schemes





Prayer:





Dear Father, 





Thank you for your mighty power and for being my strength. Father, I put on your full armor so that I am able to stand strong, with you by my side, and deflect the attacks of the enemy ( Ephesians 6:10-11). In Jesus' name, Amen.
