A few years ago I was getting my picture taken for my passport at Walgreens. I had the flu and was in a little hurry to get my picture taken and get all of the required documents back to the government to get my passport, not to mention get back in bed.

I was waiting, what I like to think patiently yet drowsy at the photo counter but no one was there. I motioned over to the employee at the check-out counter and she got on the loud speaker to have someone come and help me.

Someone responded and helped me and I was on my way back home.

When I think of a prayer warrior, I think of someone like that Walgreen’s employee at the check-out counter—someone who steps in to call for help on our behalf. This could be a parent, a spouse, a child—but it’s extra special when it is a non-family member.

One of the best ways to get unstuck in problematic areas of our life and gain freedom in Christ is to have a prayer warrior praying for you and for what God has placed on your heart.

As we know, the enemy wants to destroy the lives God created us for. We have to act wisely, deliberately, and with intense determination to fight for this abundant life.

Praying regularly is part of this, but our prayers are more powerful if we are consistently praying with a prayer warrior or prayer partner. “Truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19).

Maybe this is something that is missing from our lives that can help us step boldly into the life God has created us for?

“Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18).
