Today we began a devotional series inspired by the film War Room, which focuses on prayer and features speaker and author Priscilla Shirer in the lead role. Priscilla and her brother, singer Anthony Evans, will be part of a nationwide simulcast event on Saturday, April 23rd, and Lakeholm Church of the Nazarene will be the local host church.

Today we shared 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 as the opening verse that helps us understand how prayer is our greatest ‘weapon’:
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
This is what Alex Kendrick writes in the War Room devotional, Overflow:
“Before you engage in an issue, a battle, or whatever your problems are, spend time in prayer first. Go to your war room—your prayer closet—and seek the Lord. When you commit to prayer and you seek God first, you are going before the One that knows the solution and can help you through any circumstance. So how do we fight? We fight in prayer, first seeking in our war room the One who can handle anything. Trust Him, keep your faith in Him, and go to war in prayer.”
We also played the song Victor’s Crown which reminds that ‘every high thing must come down and every stronghold shall be broken.’ Christ will have the ultimate victory!
Our word of the day is miche (mitch), which means to lurk out of sight, which is like hiding and creeping around. We don’t recommend this!
Thanks for listening!
