A Bold and Solid Stance of Prayer

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to standStand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:13-20)
 A Bold and Solid Stance of Prayer . . . . This is what Paul is writing about in the verses above! It paints a picture of a warrior girded for battle. A line is drawn in the sand! Weapons are loaded and prepared to use. The soldier is trained, ready, and willing to go to battle for himself and for those whom he loves. He stares down the enemy and attacks, not waiting to be ambushed but on the offensive!

So does this describe our prayer life? It ain't no joke!!!
