PREPARED FOR BATTLE
Praying always with all Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
When we pray, our thoughts are centered on "our side" of the prayer time, place and our need. Even after we pray, our attention is on the answer we hope to receive.
Again, all that activity is on ur side of the prayer. But what about "God's side" of our prayers? What happens in heavenly places, at the throne of God, when we pray Simply put, we don't know--and it is fruitless to speculate. But we should not ignore the glimpses behind the curtain that Scripture offers.
First, prayer is linked to spiritual warfare--it was the last thing Paul mentioned in his description of the Christian's spiritual armor Ephesians 6:18) Anticipating conflicts in Jerusalem, Paul requested prayer for his deliverance before arriving (Romans 15:30-33). Jesus labored so mightily in prayer that an angel had to minister to Him (Luke 22:43-44) And Daniel 10 gives us a glimpse of the actual three week spiritual warfare in heaven that surrounded Daniel's prayers.
The next time you pray, thank God for the strength to persevere and that His will is always done.
