Prayer Warrior. What comes to mind when you read that? Who comes to mind when you read that? Do you know a lot of prayer warriors? Are you one yourself? Throughout my college years, I met many people who I considered prayer warriors. They were the people you would go to when you were struggling with something or someone. You can count on them to pray for you then and you knew without a shadow of a doubt they would keep praying for you. Over the years I have met more.
I longed to be known as one of those prayer warriors since I admired them so much. As the longing grew, I realized I couldn’t be this type of prayer warrior without some sacrifice. It takes time to pray for people, to check in with them, to keep praying for them. As the years have gone by, I have seriously enjoyed the sacrifice of praying for people. It’s an amazing time to come before the creator of the universe on behalf of family and friends. I have grown closer to Jesus as a result of praying because I see His heart more and more for people.
Some of the most important people I pray for are my husband and my kids. This year I am so excited to use this book as a tool to pray for my husband. It has been awesome so far. One quote that was so powerful from the book was “And I dare say, the most important “work” we can do as wives is on our knees.”
Last year a friend of mine sent me a blog post that gave me an idea to pray for my kids. The first step is to pick out a verse to pray over your kids each day. A verse that speaks to who they are, what they are struggling with, what they need to grow in. After praying about that, I trace each kids hand and write their verse on it. I do this on January 1st or close to the beginning of the year. It has been an amazing tool and a great visual for me. Here are their verses for this year.
I am praying these ideas can spur you on to become a prayer warrior or go deeper in your prayer life.
