Daily Warfare Prayers: Find Strength and Peace In God’s Word

Daily warfare prayers are an important part of your life.  Many people ask what they are and why we need them.  This life is a spiritual battle that we face every day between good and evil.  Our daily warfare prayers are how we suit up with the spiritual armor needed to get the victory against demonic powers. 

What Does The Bible Say About Daily Warfare Prayers?

Let's go straight to the source. Ephesians 6:12 says this: “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." (Ephesians 6:12 )

We are battling against something we can't even see.  These spiritual warfare prayers, the daily warfare prayers we're talking about, are us putting on the armor of God.  The spiritual battles are real and can make us weary and discouraged. So we have to fight back against Satan. 

Why We Need Daily Warfare Prayers

You wouldn't go into a physical fight without protection, right? No army goes to war without armor.  So why would you go into a spiritual one without gearing up?  Here’s why we need to do battle by way of warfare prayers in our daily life: 

Protection from Spiritual Attacks

Think about the last time you felt tempted or really angry, upset or discouraged.  That, my friends, that’s a spiritual attack. When you engage in daily warfare prayers, you are  building a shield around you.  They allow you to fight back against the fiery darts that Satan throws your way.

Strength in Times of Trouble

Ever feel like you’re drowning in stress, anxieties, or problems? Like maybe your spiritual battle is more like a world war raging inside of you? We’ve all been there.

Daily warfare prayers are a lifeline straight to God, to the Lord Jesus, even Christ Jesus, our Heavenly Father.  He’s our rock, the one constant, even when life gets messy.  We have to cling to him during these times because he has all power and he is able to keep you. 

Peace That Surpasses Understanding

The Bible talks about this amazing kind of peace, the kind that logic can’t explain. In this chaotic world, that kind of peace is like pure gold. It only comes when you connect with God and your heart's devotion is given to him.

Philippians 4:7 says And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

When you surrender yourself to Him through daily prayer, your heart's search will be fulfilled. God's peace will guard your heart and mind from demonic attacks.  Jesus Christ won the ultimate victory for us so we can rest in him. 

The Power Of The Holy Spirit

When we pray, we're tapping into the power of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit is our helper.  This means that He will lead and guide you into all truth and expose and decode every lie of satan. He will strengthen you, and even fight those spiritual battles alongside you. 

His word, God's word, is instrumental. When Christ won, we all won. Embrace the spiritual blessings that come with knowing our God and understanding that He gives us the victory.

A Daily Warfare Prayer To Start Your Day

Ready to get practical? Let’s start with a simple yet powerful prayer to use each and every day:

“Father God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ, acknowledging your power and authority over my life. Today, I put on the full armor of God. I take up the shield of faith against any fiery darts the enemy throws at me. Lead me by Your spirit, fill me with Your peace, and use me for Your glory. Amen”

This is just one prayer, just a starting point. There's no one "right" way to do it. What matters is you’re talking to God from the heart. He wants a relationship with you, so that you can grow in spiritual warfare.
