Ephesians 6:10-18: "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints."
Andrew Murray said, "In the conflict between Satan and the Believer, God's child can conquer EVERYTHING by prayer. Is it any wonder that Satan does his utmost to snatch that weapon from the Christian, or to hinder him in the use of it?"
Leonard Ravenhill said, "No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. The pulpit can be a shop window to display one's talents; the prayer closet allows no showing off."
Today, we are going to look at three more ways in which we are to be “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…”
We have already seen that “all prayer” includes: (1) the prayer of faith, (2) the prayer of agreement or corporate prayer, and (3) the prayer of request. “All prayer” also includes three additional forms of prayer:
First, is the prayer of thanksgiving. This is a prayer of gratitude to God for what He has done for you. This is a prayer you pray after God has answered your prayers. Even before you get an answer to your prayer, you can thank God for doing what is best for you. And for doing what He has already done. Philippians 4:6 says we ought to offer “prayer and supplication with thanksgiving.”
Second, is the prayer of worship. This is a prayer of praise to God where you aren’t asking Him for anything specifically, but you are just worshipping Him because of who He is. In Acts 13, we read of early Christians who were “worshipping the Lord and fasting.”
