Chapter XVII

God’s Spiritual Preparation for Your
Spiritual Supernatural Warfare Through Prayer.

I believe you are now ready to participate in the final preparation that is necessary for you to participate in the daily spiritual supernatural battle known as “Spiritual Warfare.” You have your spiritual armor on and now you MUST be spiritually “prayed up” daily before you enter into the battle for God’s Kingdom. How is this done? Following is The ORDER and COMPONENTS of Your Daily Prayers:

How to open your daily prayer conversation with the Godhead {see Romans 1:20 KJV, NKJV, AMP}. Be as personal as possible including and addressing individually God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit – the Godhead! You can have a living, loving relationship with the living, loving God! FIRST thing you always do is to ask God to forgive you of your sins/repent {1 John 1:9, 8, 10}! Your prayers are going nowhere with God if you have unrepented sin in your life! Do NOT be afraid to pour out to God your physical and spiritual mindset and your spiritual heart – the trials and tribulations that you are going through. He is in them with you going BEFORE you!

Opening of your prayer – “Dear Heavenly Father” (Matthew 6:9) – Acknowledge His love for you and His foreknown and predestined plans that He has for you that are in His Book of Life. (Psalms 139:16) Ask Him to help you to be on the right line in His Book for you to be fulfilling His thoughts and plans for you TODAY/NOW. Ask Him to help you get through all of the chaos and strife that you are going through and in your life! Overcome it through His peace! Seek His peace and it will help you to overcome the strife and the continual chaos so many Christians have in their lives (Philippians 4:7).

Acknowledge God the Son, close your prayers in His Name! Through Him came creation (John 1:3), salvation (Acts 4:12), and judgment (2 Corinthians 5:10). By His stripes you are healed, forgiven, and cleansed of ALL sin, sickness, and disease. (Isaiah 53:5)
Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor, AMP

Acknowledge the Godhead through the representation of God the Holy Spirit living in you. (John 14:23, 1 Corinthians 6:19) Ask Him to equip you TODAY with the “Fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-26), the “Gifts of the Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 27-28, 13:13; Romans 12:6-8; Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Peter 4:10-12). and the “Sound Mind of Christ” (2 Timothy 1:7, 1 Corinthians 2:16, Isaiah 11:2). In prayer, take Him by the spiritual hand, let Him lead and guide you through the minefield that is called “life” to His peace {Isaiah 26:3-4}.

Share your love for the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit by telling them OFTEN that you love them as your living loving God! Do NOT be afraid to express your feelings with Them, because God FIRST loved you! (1 John 4:19) Remember that God lives in you and you live in God!

Pray with as many family members as possible!

Acknowledge God’s angels and their presence in your life as “fellow servants” of God in your life. (Hebrews 1:14, Revelation 19:10, Revelation 22:9) Ask God to allow them to minister to you in a manner pleasing to Him and beneficial to you. Ask Him to reveal these servants to you and for you to learn to love them as brothers/fellow servants in Christ.

Put on the full armor of God at least daily or more depending on the ferocity of the battles. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

Recite Jesus’ “Model Prayer” at the beginning of your prayer time. (Matthew 6:9-13)

Include some prayer time to offer “thanksgiving” to God for your life and the things of your life.

Be specific in bringing forth your prayer requests! God already knows what you need BEFORE you ask (Matthew 6:8), but you need to be specific in your requests so that you will see and know God’s answers to your prayers.

If you so distraught/upset/beside yourself that you cannot pray, you can ask the Holy Spirit to groan/pray for you to the Father. (Roman 8:26-27) THIS DOES WORK!!! I can testify to this!!! You can go to sleep almost instantly IF you will trust God to work the matter out for you! (Romans 8:28)

Continually pray for Jesus’s peace in your daily life and that of your family. (John 14:27, John 16:33)

Learn to anoint with “oil” those who are sick {James 5:14}. I believe “anointing oil” represents “God the Holy Spirit” {1 John 2:20}.
Close your prayer with thanksgiving in Jesus’ Name. (Philippians 4:6, John 14:13, 14)

Be sure to be in constant communication with God! Be sure you thank Him for your day as you are going to bed/sleep.

Your prayers should include using “anointing oil” every so often to anoint your house/living quarters, your property, even the meeting place of your church, and your church building, and your mode of transportation – car, truck, motor scooter, motorcycle, bicycle, etc.

I would like to briefly look at Jesus’ “Model Prayer:”

Matthew 6:9-13 {Jesus speaking} Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth {NOW!} as it is in heaven {NOW!}. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts {sins}, as we also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors {those who sinned against us}. 13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one {Satan}. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. AMP

Please take a look at this prayer!!! It pretty much includes ALL of the things that we need for our daily life! But the ONE thing that it does NOT include is closing it in Jesus’ Name! Jesus instructed us to close our prayers in His Name, but He did not do this in the prayer He taught us. Why?

John 14:13-14 {Jesus speaking. In your prayers ask} And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son. [Ex 3:14.] 14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. AMP

So why did Jesus not close His own prayer in His Name? Well, you might say He did NOT want to be redundant. But I believe there was a different and BETTER reason. I believe we are to START at the beginning of our daily prayer with the “Lord’s Model Prayer” and then follow with our thanksgiving to God for what He has provided for us and then our prayer requests which the verse before the Lord’s Prayer states that He already knows, but we MUST present our requests to Him anyway so that we can see how our prayers are answered.
Matthew 6:8 Do not be like them {Unbelievers}, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. AMP

I ask you to go back and review from the “Foreword” to the end of this Chapter. Can you see and comprehend the intricacy and intimacy that God has had in your life from BEFORE time and the ages began? I believe this is awesome in demonstrating His Agape and His ability to provide for us!!! But He is NOT done with you/us yet!
