There is so much injustice in the world today and frankly, good ideas to combat injustice are not enough. The wars we rage in the flesh are only the tip of the iceberg to what we cannot see in the spiritual realm around us.
Ephesians 6:12 states, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
The reality is we need divine help and prayer needs to be our first line of defense. Prayer puts us right on the frontlines of battle.
Case In Point
In the Book of Daniel (Daniel 10:2-4, 12-13), we read how Daniel was led into a 21 day season of fasting and prayer and when he was finished, an angel appeared to him stating that he (the angel, not Daniel) had in battle (detained) with the Prince of Persia, until Michael, the archangel, came to help him because of Daniel’s fasting and intercession. We must understand that so much around us is rooted in the unseen realities of darkness and we are called to bring the light. Prayer, fasting, intercession and worship are all tools of the Kingdom of God that help us usher in righteousness and justice here on earth and we must understand these things are just as important, if not more important, than any strategy or plan we could create on our own.
“…Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” ~ II Chronicles 20:15
This website is a tool to help us in our wrestling and to remind us that even in prayer, we are doing something.
