My constant prayer is that the Lord would make me a woman of prayer. If there is nothing else I can do to serve others and further the Great Commission, I can certainly be a prayer warrior around my home! I can saturate my home in prayer while I clean the dishes, make a meal, or changing a diaper. I can send forth prayers on behalf of our nation and the souls of the lost while running an errand.
As John Piper says, “A woman on her knees sways more in this nation than a thousand three piece suited Wall Street folks.”
I can be a faithful prayer warrior on behalf of my husband and children as my first and primary mission field. I can bless and do good to my husband (Proverbs 31:12a) by diligently laboring in prayer on his behalf. Satan desires to destroy husband, his character and his leadership in our relationship. Satan desires to steal away the hearts of our children(1 Peter 5:8-9), thus even greater motivation to be on the front lines, alert, equipped with the Word of God, praying His truth over our households.
