William Akehurst, HSWC

Understanding our prayer life IS SPIRITUAL.

THE BIG IDEA: We must understand our prayer life is Spiritual. Sounds simple enough, But when we realize the position of the HOLY SPIRIT in our prayer life as our intercessor, this Spiritual Intercessory effectually fervent prayer, becomes WORSHIP in its highest form

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

IN THIS WORLD, WE MUST PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD to be well equipped each day.

Ephesians 6:10-18

BE STRONG

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

THE BATTLE IS SPIRITUAL – THEREFORE WE MUST LEARN TO BATTLE IN THE SPIRIT

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

REALIZE THE EVIL IN OUR DAY IS FROM satan

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

STAND FIRM

TRUTH – GOD’S WORD IS TRUTH, THE TRUTH IS THAT EVIL IS DEFEATED

RIGHTEOUSNESS – JESUS IS OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE BREASTPLATE OF GOD’S APPROVAL. WE ARE APPROVED BY GOD THROUGH AND BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

READY TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS OF GOD’S PEACE

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

FAITH IS OUR DEFENSE SHIELD AGAINST THE ATTACKS.

BE STRONG AND STAND BEHIND YOUR FAITH!

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

SALVATION – THE CHANGED/REPENTANCE OF OUR MINDS

GOD’S WORD – THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, CAPABLE OF DIVIDING GOOD AND EVIL, AND GET TO THE ROOT.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

HOW DO WE BATTLE IN THE SPIRIT?

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT ON OUR OWN BEHALF, AND FOR OTHER BELIEVERS

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT – PRAYING WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

THE HOLY SPIRIT KNOWS OUR WEAKNESSES

Romans 8:26-27

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

WE DON’T ALWAYS KNOW HOW WE SHOULD PRAY

THEREFORE THE HOLY GHOST PRAYS WITH US
