And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains.

Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love. Ephesians 6:-18-20,24
There is a funny saying about the fool who “brought a knife to a gun fight”. Many Christians fail to fight with our greatest weapon of all, prayer! The apostle Paul concludes his letter to the believers in Ephesus admonishing them to be in continual prayer. We are all to pray on every occasion inviting God into all of life’s situations. This will keep us alert to eternal and spiritual realities that we otherwise would not see. After all, our battle is not with flesh and blood.
Am I alert, always praying, looking for opportunities to share the gospel of Jesus Christ?
God, this is a brand new day, with literally dozens of opportunities to take ground for heaven’s sake. Use me in a great way. Prompt me throughout the day to pray and listen to You. Show Your mighty power. I am girded for battle with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
