Prayer in Christian Life and Spiritual Warfare


Prayer in Christian Life and Spiritual Warfare

The long apostolic tradition of Christianity is central to Christian life and spiritual warfare. The globalized charismatic Christianity, with nearly half a billion adherents and growing exponentially, has brought charismatic Christianity into the mainstream and renewed militant Christianity. Prayer is a key weapon in the spiritual warfare arsenal and a central means of redemptive praxis. In short, prayer is a powerful weapon in Christian life. Here are some of the main ways Christians use prayer in spiritual warfare.

In the bible, the human person is made up of both a soul and a body. Christ came to save both. His goal was to save human beings and raise their bodies. This healing power is manifested in the Sacraments. The Eucharist, for example, gives eternal life and is a sign of Jesus’ presence. The prayers of the priest are believed to be powerful instruments for bodily healing. The priests of the Church perform the sacrament to bring physical and spiritual strength to the sick.

Miracles are the cornerstone of Christian faith. Jesus performed miracles to demonstrate his divinity. His compassion for the poor, sick, and suffering is at the core of Christian faith. Christians should ask for the power to perform miracles in their lives to reach out to the unbelievers. They should also ask for the renewed outpouring of the Holy Spirit every day. This powerful spiritual gift is a source of hope and strength in times of adversity.
