Always pray God’s Word back to Him in every battle. Always give Him thanks for what His Word declares.
Q: What are the best prayers for spiritual warfare?
A: Prayers based on God’s Word will be your best weapons against the attacks of your enemy, the devil.
The Word is filled with scriptures that cover every area of your life that the enemy would come against. Your safety and security, your health and well-being, your finances and prosperity, your relationships with people … no issue of life is left uncovered. Psalm 91 covers many of life’s issues that may come under attack. Make it your prayer of declaration often when the enemy challenges you.
When you continually declare God’s Word over any situation, you strike a blow against the enemy for which he has no answer. Look at how Jesus fought Satan in Luke 4:1-13. He defeated the attacks with God’s Word. These scriptures describe the attacks of Satan as “temptations.” In fact, every temptation is an attack on God’s Word and on your faith. The goal of the enemy is to get you to take your eyes off your Father and His Word and to make you try to come up with weapons and answers of your own. Don’t do it.
Always pray God’s Word back to Him in every battle. Always give Him thanks for what His Word declares. Thanksgiving is the “big gun” in our spiritual arsenal. When the storms of life are thundering around us, if we'll just stop right in the middle of it and give thanks based on the Word, it will keep us standing strong and give us the victory!
