Prayer as warfare

Good morning.  In a few hours the people of FBC will meet to seek the Lord by listening to His word, together.  Our text for today is Judges 4 and 5.  Deborah was a mother who realized that her nation, and therefore her children, was captive.  Led by the Lord, she became convinced that they should FIGHT.  Most of us have no idea how captive we are.  “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a SLAVE to sin.”  (Jesus, John 8:34)  To be free we must fight.  Faith isn’t passive.  Prayer is a powerful weapon, but it must be used or it is useless.  “Therefore, take up the full armor of God. . .with all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit”  (Ephesians 6:13,18)  As you pray this morning, dear friend, will you cry out to God against our captivity?  Will you remember that others are praying with you?
