For year 2010, my new year’s resolution was to become a warrior of prayer. As I face another new year, 2011, here I am sat down to make a new year’s resolution to be a prayer warrior again. Because of an unsatisfactory result of the past or never fulfilling nature of the task which I can’t tell, but somehow, I feel I need to renew this particular one for many many more years. At a recent revival gathering of a local church, the speaker gave a powerful message about prayer using Prophet Elijah as an excellent role model. The message points were: 1) Hardships or obstacles make people to pray. (17:1) 2) The essence of prayer is the heart of the praying person. 3) The warriors of prayer make challenges to impossibles. (18:19) 4) Faith is a must to have for a prayer warrior. (18:37-38, Eph. 6:16) 5) People of prayer never refuse cross. (18:22) 6) Warriors of prayer can recognize the sign of emerging blessings from God. (18:41) 7) Thus, let us be one of the 7000 reserved prayer warriors. (19:18)
Oh, yes Lord help me to be a stronger warrior of prayer for this year.
