Arise Prayer Warriors – the time is at hand. Petition the Most High God. The time is short. The cries of the afflicted and suffering are many.
“The enemy wants to steal our peace and keep us stirred up, anxious, fearful, upset, and always in a stance of waiting for something terrible to happen at any minute.”
― Stormie Omartian, The 7-Day Prayer Warrior Experience
“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”
― Mother Teresa
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
― Francis of Assisi
“The more you pray, the less you’ll panic. The more you worship, the less you worry. You’ll feel more patient and less pressured.”
― Rick Warren, The Purpose of Christmas
“The enemy uses lies to confuse people and fill them with anxiety and fear. The apostle John said, “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (1 John 5:19). The enemy’s lies completely mess up our thinking and weaken us if we believe them. Every day we must combat his lies with God’s truth.”
― Stormie Omartian, The 7-Day Prayer Warrior Experience
A Fight to the Finish
And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.
Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
And don’t forget to pray for me. Pray that I’ll know what to say and have the courage to say it at the right time, telling the mystery to one and all, the Message that I, jailbird preacher that I am, am responsible for getting out. (Ephesians 6:10-20 MSG)

Please, I have prayed for many years now for help and personal betterment to help others and I am not getting the help I need. I know God is perfect and his word and promises are faithful and true, please add your prayers to mine and maybe he will listen and my wait will be over. Thank You!
Lord, please take my apathy and fears away and lead me by the hand to get done what I need to get done. Please put Your spirit in me to work like You did Zerubbabel and his people to rebuild Your temple. I need to rebuild my life and my child’s life and need Your help to move forward with help from you. I am asking for favor from You so that others will see my value and let me bless them but also bless me in return. Please Lord, send good people into our lives who will help us and sustain us and give us strength. Please use the one we have sowed into to provide for us now so we have someone here on earth to take care of us for You or through You and by You. Please provide and protect and encourage us Lord in the name of Jesus. Please be OPENLY for us so we can navigate life without fear at every turn Lord, please let us be more than conquerors in Christ NOW and the enemy trying to set constant fires to keep us distracted is crushed under our feet. Amen! 2/25/15
You remind me of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1. “Go in peace. And may the God of Israel give you what you have asked of him.” God is good and He promised to lead you my friend. Watch as He opens doors for you that no man can shut and gives you what you need just when you need it. I pray God’s favor, abundance, and grace over you and your child. Walk in peace, and watch the mighty hand of the Lord bring you into your promised land. The Lord will fight for you, you need only be still. God Bless you and we can talk again soon. I know God is faithful and has heard and will answer your prayers. Blessings, Diana
Diana and others, Thank You for your prayers. There is a couple with prayer warriors behind them also praying for me an holding me up while I wait for God. I KNOW HE WILL PROVIDE, WE ALL KNOW THAT. Since the above February 25, 2015 prayer request God did help me move forward and do better, THANK YOU LORD! He even gave me a miracle job! But the details and connections and favor I need to complete that job still escape me. I am dashing madly here and there trying to find people to work with and ask that God be merciful and complete this work He started to let myself and my daughter succeed. Please pray that God sets me up with good people immediately, I have stepped out and my prayers for action were answered but I need support people behind me to finish this task and I look everywhere for God’s people and favor and direction with belief that He will provide and expectation and hope. I DID GET SOME AMAZINGLY GOOD PEOPLE LIKE DIANA AND ROBERT TO PRAY FOR ME AND HOLD ME UP, SO I AM MOVING FORWARD IN THAT WAY. Lord please let these people see me win in Your name and get Your glory through my life instead of my whining! In Jesus’ name I ask for all the help I need to get back on my feet now. Amen! 3/17/15
The Lord will go before you and prepare the way. Congratulations! And thank you Jesus!
