The battle cry

The Bible very clearly compares the Christian life to a battle. In a battle, the stakes are high. It is life or death. Everything is on the line. Therefore, we must approach the Christian life with intentionality and know how to battle our enemy – Satan. Let's not be clueless.

This morning, I was reading in 1 Chronicles chapter 5 how the Israelites incorporated prayer into their battle plan. The results speak for themselves. Check it out...
They were helped in fighting them, and God handed the Hagrites and all their allies over to them, because they cried out to him during the battle. He answered their prayers, because they trusted in him. - 1 Chronicles 5:20
Let's make sure we are people who make prayer an integral part of our battle plans.
