“The kingdom of heaven suffereth much violence and the violent take it by force…”
There are times we sense a struggle in prayer as we submit our deepest needs and the needs of others to God. It is as if a wall has been erected and our prayers are bouncing from every corner right back at us. What do we do at these times? Do we give up to the voice of doubt? Do we question God’s listening abilities and give up in despair?Indeed our faith falters, yet we know deep within our souls that this should not be so. What then can we do to keep from falling into this pit of despair or if we do fall, how do we get out? To answer this question I will take you through Ephesians 6:10-18 and Daniel 10 (New Living Translation). They will help expound on the subject of spiritual warfare and the importance of persevering in faith.
