One of the most important forms of encouragement we have as Christians is prayer. Prayer is extremely powerful, It is our ability to communicate with God and seek His wisdom, guidance, and peace.

When we know someone else is going through a hard time, why is it so hard to reach out in prayer? For the Bible states in Ephesian 6:12 that we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world. We know this verse but when we deal with someone who has been causing a lot of drama or is just on the verge of becoming defeated, why is it so hard to pick up the phone and pray for or even with them? That’s all we ever need. There is no perfect Christian and we all mess up but one prayer can change the entire situation.

This year of quarantine has been hard on all of us. I’ve made more mistakes than I care to admit but the main thing I needed was prayer. I lacked proper guidance and support. Many people won’t experience what it’s like to experience quarantine alone. It’s not fun. We are most vulnerable when we’re alone and the enemy knows it. The enemy will attack HARD like he did for many months. It took me a long time to realize my authority I have in Christ to rebuke the enemy from my life but not before the enemy did enough damage.

We need prayer. Prayer buddies. Prayer warriors. People boldly to reach out and pray for the hurting. My experience for many years is often the one who lashes out the most is the one who needs prayer the most. Don’t get me wrong, the ones who remain quiet are desperate for prayer too. I’ve basically been a mute most of my life so I understand this struggle too.

I’m sure you have heard of the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. What can 1 prayer do to keep the enemy away for the day?

Who can you pray for today? Who can you reach out to today? 1 prayer can change everything.
