What does it mean to Arise?
What would it look like to pray for our children on purpose, without pause?
To respond to the battles with them and against in prayer first?
Shouldn’t this be our first course of action?
Sisters, we are in the midst of spiritual battle for our children and our families.
This battle doesn’t require firearms and fatigues (although we might feel fatigued). But it does demand swords and shields (Ephesians 6:10-20). We are commanded in Scripture to take up our sword — the Word of God which is alive and powerful — along with the shield of faith to extinguish the fiery darts the enemy will send our way. Oh friends, this is not just figurative language we find in the best book ever written. It’s is Truth upon which we should build our lives. It is Truth we should embrace as moms on behalf of those who’ve been put in our charged by the God of Universe.
So, my friend, will you ARISE today?
Join me over at The Better Mom where I share how we can answer the battlecry of prayer as we following the example set before us in Scripture. Before you go, download the Arise prayer and begin this habit today.
* Coincidentally, this prayer and post was written prior to the release of the movie, War Room. I marvel at God how seeing the movie for the first time after writing these words confirmed the message He put on my heart. I pray that this prayer and War Room would be inspire you to be a woman of prayer, too. *
