Prayer- A Powerful Weapon

In my last post, we talked about the reality of spiritual warfare and how believers can fight back against Satan’s schemes. It sounds like a cliché Sunday School answer, but our main weapons in this battle are regularly reading the Bible and prayer (they become clichés for a reason!). Prayer is both an offensive andContinue reading “Prayer- A Powerful Weapon”
