Continue in Prayer: The Battle is Here

by Sherry Chamblee

We have such an overload of information in this country right now. News is constantly breaking about all sorts of things. There are satire sites putting up articles that are supposed to be funny. There are fake news sites putting up articles trying to fool people. And there are opinion articles masquerading as real news.

We have reports of wars, and rumors of wars. We have alarms beeping at us, family responsibilities pulling us every which way, and who knows what else demanding our attention.

With all of this, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed, and to forget what’s really important.

Colossians 4:2-5

2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; 

3 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: 

4 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. 

5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. 

Just like we don’t know the full truth of what’s going around out there – even from credible news sources – we also don’t know the depth of the spiritual war waging around us, either.

A spiritual war is happening all around us. And we are an integral part of that war.

Don’t get so distracted that you forget to pray. Keep up the fight, for the fight is on a spiritual level. That fight is done on our knees before the living God, and we must not grow weary in that well doing. I know that often, because that spiritual battle is invisible, we tend to forget it’s there. But it is as real as the nose on my face.

So never forget:

  • Pray for lost souls. 
  • Pray for leadership.
  • Pray for your children.
  • Pray for your neighbors to not be deceived. 
  • Pray for missionaries to have boldness in spreading the Word. 

Keep Praying/

Redeem the time through prayer.

About the Author:

Sherry Chamblee

Sherry grew up in various cities around northern and central California. This gave her all sorts of stories that sat and festered in her brain, waiting to be let loose. She eventually went to college in Wisconsin, where she met her equally frenetic husband, Rich. They have six (yes, count them) children, two dogs and a cat, and currently reside in a madhouse in the southern California area. As a family, they enjoy being active in their local church. Sherry spends her time writing when not caring for Granny, the kids, the dogs, the cat and any number of strays in the neighborhood.
