Attentive Prayer Warrior
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self - discipline. --- 2 Timothy 1:7

Sometimes when we pray, we hasten to do it with anxious urgency as though our words will bring on a blessing or resolve a problem right away through our action. We can be stronger and more effective prayer warriors if we stop praying 'at' situations before taking time to really listen to what we are praying about and then address them from our faith perspective in God. It is worthy of our consideration to make sure we pray in a position of confidence and complete trust in God. There can be moments when we are praying for ourselves or for others when our spirit may pick up on some turbulence. We must not let that discourage us or make us afraid. More times than not - the  energy that we sense is from the frustration of an adversarial spirit towards the spirit of God within us. The adversary knows about the power of prayer, and - when we pray - we abort his attempt to continue disruption, disharmony, illness, etc. That disturbance comes to interrupt us from praying. But we can better deal with that and send it on its way by being more attentive when we pray, because our prayer life with God is a power that no devil in hell or in the earth will ever defeat!
