battling [from February 27, 2013]

Sometimes… maybe ALL the time… a time of prayer… becomes a battleground…

Epaphras, who is one of you and a servant of Christ Jesus
He is always wrestling in prayer for you,
That you may stand firm in all the will of God,
mature and fully assured.
Colossians 4:12
(my emphasis)

Today… I was Epaphras… wrestling in prayer… for one to stand firm…

wrestling… laboring… struggling… all translations of the Greek… which means… to contend with adversaries… fight…

A spiritual battle… an unseen battle… yet real nonetheless…

The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
2 Corinthians 10:4

Intercession… a battle whose outcome has eternal consequences… an arena we need to enter fully equipped… and fully aware…
