Integrity preaching of the Bible; God's Word as it was written. People acting as Christians, not just saying they are Christians. Twisting or refuting God's Word is Blasphemy.

Spiritual Warfare: Everyone Should Be Armed
The enemy is just like an NBA or NFL head coach. He will not bother with the teammates on the sidelines, the ones not called to play regularly. Satan focuses on the players on the court, which pose the biggest threat. He studies their strategy and their weaknesses, so as to know exactly where to hit them, for the win, and your defeat. God is the winning coach. Follow His direction and Satan is defeated every time.
In the heat of the moment, or in the middle of play, sometimes we forget the strategy, and drop the ball. That will happen, not to worry. Just pull from the instruction manual, pick up the ball, and run again. Never give in, and never give up. I promise you, as I am a walking testimony of His Glory, if we focus completely on the Lord, His goodness will be revealed.
Everybody, at sometime in their life, will drop the ball, and cannot seem to recover it. Satan is all about the lie. He can convince the best, at some point, they just aren't worthy, or good enough. If not caught early, and resisted with zeal, doubt can get a foothold. It becomes imperative in everyone's life, to let go of troubles, and trust completely in the Lord. We can't begin to conceive of the many ways He will work behind the scenes in our lives, for the best plan for us, and for His Glory. Oftentimes, He will wait until the darkest hour to reveal His Glory, for reasons best suited to our needs.
So, as we strive harder to be a disciple of Christ and make a difference, Satan will blindside us, when we are not ready. Before you know it, evil works can be all around us, and it seems there is nothing we can do about it. In my recent dificulties, I have struggled with grieving, but, at the same time God's Grace has carried me through. I have prayed with others experiencing attacks in their lives, and feel hopelessness.
When the enemy's attacks become overwhelming, the only one able to fight our battle is God. We are still responsible to do our part, which is rebuke the enemy, fight in and through the Holy Spirit, and stay solid in our faith. In seeking to help others, I have realized many do not have the Spiritual Warfare Prayer, nor use it. I encourage you with all my heart to stay persistant in seeking Him, wait for as long as it takes for an answer to your specific need, and do not waiver. First get into worship and praise of the Lord, so as to loose all stray or ungodly thoughts, and be completely in the Spirit. Then, recite the Spiritual Warfare Prayer:
I put on the full armor of God that will quench all the firey darts of the evil one.
I put on the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, and I gird my loins with the belt of truth. My feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, and I pick up my sword, which is the word of God. I pick up my shield of faith that will quench all the firey darts of the evil one.
I put on my crown of honor and glory, the mantle of zeal, the robe of righteousness and the garments of praise. I put on the Lord Jesus Christ and I put on the armor of light.
I cancel every arguement, every negative confession, every word curse, every judgement, every bad report, every hex, every jinx, every spell, every backlash, and every retalliation that Satan has assigned against my life and the lives of my loved ones, in Jesus name. I cancel these assignments with the name and the blood of Jesus Christ.
Father, I call for the warring angels of God to be dispatched on my behalf, to destroy every assignment that Satan or any demonic influence has against my life, or my family's lives, in Jesus name; Amen
I plead the blood of Jesus over our mind , will , and emotions; I plead the blood of Jesus over our hearing that we might hear the voice of God, and obey the commands of God, and the voice of the liars would be silenced, in Jesus Holy name; Amen!
I nuetralize the powers of darkness over my unsaved loved ones with the power of the cross and the name and the blood of Jesus Christ.
Father, I ask that you open the door to my loved one's hearts to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and that righteousness would be poured out from Heaven into their heart, so that righteousness and salvation can sprout up together in Jesus Holy name; AMEN!!!
Copy and paste into notepad, print, and keep it with you. Say it with someone, if at all possible, but, you can achieve ground on your own. Keep a copy with you and say it throughout the day, as often as possible. Eventually, you will memorize it. Each segment has its own significance, so don't shortcut. Believe! and God Bless you...
I am a 53 yr old businessman and I came across a subject for which I took up an interest a few years ago. That developed into other things and changed my whole direction in life. My biggest hurdle in accomplishing my book has been incorrect or missing data for which I developed a new passion. Christian is, as Christian does.
