Are you a Prayer Warrior? Do you wish you could become a prayer warrior? When life gets hard there are certain people we turn to for prayer, but what if you could be like them? I am here to tell you that anyone can become a prayer warrior for Christ Jesus, enrolled in his endtime army. I mean an effective prayer warrior well armed and very dangerous. It can be me, you or anyone! We need more faithful Christians to rise up to the challenge from our local churches. You need to cultivate the habit of prayer and to know how and why becoming a prayer warrior is needful, helpful and significant in the time we live today.
A. How to Become a Prayer Warrior
The age we all live today needs Jesus and his intervention in the affairs of humanity. Revival is desperately needed that will set the church on fire for endtime harvest of souls into the Kingdom of God. Yes, we all need to prioritize prayer lifestyle for revival in the Church and unity among the body of Christ. This is what I believe will draw the lost world to the loving God, who alone can save the lost world.
Historians recount the revivals of the past with awe and wonder. They tell of great pastors, preachers and great change in the lives of communities around the world. We hear these stories and so desire for revival today, we may even pray for revival, but historians also note that weeks, months, and even years of prayer preceded those great revivals of the past. There were prayer walk, prayer meetings, prayer rally, prayer guides and many more…
B. Why Become a Prayer Warrior Today?
Behind every great revival there are prayer warriors. Truly, revival begins in the hearts of God’s people crying out to Him for change. Change in themselves first and then change in the world around them. Revival begins when ordinary people become intercessory prayer warriors! People like me and people like you.
Are you and your household praying for revival but seeing no results, don’t worry, our God hears and answers prayer? Let’s join hands together in a time of fasting and prayer and the result will be amazing.
When you add scripture to prayer it becomes a powerful strategic prayer. Let’s pray for revival standing the promises of God’s Word; just as it is written.
C. Why Are Prayer Warriors Needed?
Prayer seems inactive maybe even wimpy to some in our churches and culture today. Some prefer to serve on the platform, help on the front lines, preach the Word, sing the song, work at the technology, and teach the class instead of joining a prayerforce team. Yes, the church needs us to serve in those ways, don’t misunderstand me, but we need more people to become like the prayer warriors in the Bible to move the hand that move the whole world into action.
Here are some of my favorite prayer warrior bible verses.
The three Hebrew Children: “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.” (Daniel 3:17-18 NASB)
- Prayer Warriors like Shadrach Meshach and Abednego made real miracle prayer requests.
If you ask “What is a Prayer Warrior and an Intercessor?” look no farther than Daniel himself who added fasting to prayer and was given a vision of end times in Daniel 10
- If you think fasting is too hard; kindly read this “fast and pray in a way that pleases God” and see how easy it can be.
Then, of course, the New Testament is filled with many a prayer warrior Bible verse to inspire a change! Paul repeatedly prayed for the churches. See Ephesians 3:14-21 for a great example!
D. Modern Day Prayer Warriors Needed
We need people committed to do the work of praying, committed to cry out unto God continually without ceasing.
There is NO special training for prayer warriors required. The only way I have learned the habit to praying is by doing he acts of prayer everyday myself. It’s simple and you can also start today!
E. How Do I Become a Prayer Warrior Today?
Becoming Prayer Warrior 3 things you must know or have!
You Need to Know How to Define Pray
We have to know the meaning of prayer beyond the definition. Prayer is about talking to God and listening when He talks to us. If you can talk to God you can become a Prayer Warrior! Jesus routinely went away alone to talk to God. Let Him be our example. One favorite Prayer Warrior Scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing”.
To Become a Prayer Warrior You Must Committed to Pray
Pray, Pray and Pray. Pray day in and day out. Pray in season and out of season. Pray about everything anytime it comes to mind and you will become a prayer warrior. Pray with love and passion.

People often ask “What does it mean to be a prayer warrior?” You must commit yourself unto prayer with love and great passion to see the will of God is done here on earth.
How to know if you are a prayer warrior?
When life hits you hard, and you have no much strength in you, one of the first responses of a prayer warrior is to take the matter up to God in pray. This of course is the test or trail of your faith.
Do Prayer Warriors Pray Special Prayers?
Honestly, what words do you pray to become a prayer warrior? I know what you mean. There are times I want to pray, I plan to pray and when the time comes I sit with a blank mind wishing I had a highly effective prayer strategy. And there are just so many questions!
- Where do you begin to pray?
- How can I be spiritually strong in prayer?
- How do you stay focused while praying?
- Do you need to set aside hours each day to pray?
- How do Christians become prayerful?
Listen, the truth is that prayer is simply bringing our lives before God, inviting Him into those lives, and listening for Him to direct our path. It may take some time; sometime it does take some hours and still sometime doesn’t take more hours. Our God have his own way of responding to every prayer from his children. What we need is trust Him and relax in his grace.
Don’t let the enemy talk you out of becoming a Prayer Warrior before you begin.
F. To Become a Prayer Warrior
Many days I simply pray through a list or a pre-written prayer guide to keep my mind focused.
- Sometimes we may journal my prayers to keep focused and on track.
- In other days prayer time is how far I won’t to be in God’s presence in the morning watch.
- Other days hour or more in the presence of God before the kids wake up. In times of crisis, I go so far as to set reminders on my phone to go off and prompt me to pray for a few moments.
There is no wrong way to do this… unless you give up and don’t pray. Remember, to become a prayer warrior you simply commit to pray. It doesn’t matter if the prayer is written out or just pray!
How Can I Be Spiritually Strong in Prayer?
Do you want to take this commitment to pray a step further? Schedule a time each day to meet with God, even if its 30 minute or an hour or more, do well to keep that appointment. Honestly, you don’t need special equipment to become a Prayer Warrior. There is no particular uniform, the best uniform is to put on the whole Armour of God. Just show up and Pray in the power of the Spirit of God.
Do you want to know the secret of how to pray effectively?
You may come before God with an open heart, Bible, a prayer guide, a notebook, and a pencil. We may sit down or lie down or stand on your feet to pray. It’s just me and God chatting about life.
I bring a notebook and pencil to write down anything God said because God talks to His soldiers. Becoming a prayer warrior puts you in a more intimate relationship with God. He will answer your prayers. Be ready to write down what He says so you don’t forget later that day when the chaos of life squeezes in.
I use several prayer guides to prompt me to pray over certain areas of my life. They help get the words started because some days my heart just says “Help me God” and what I really want is to be specific and strategic in my prayers. Not that “Help Me God” won’t be answered but we have a real enemy with a real plan and I need to be effective as I do battle.
When I pray to God both strategically and effectively I add scripture. The Word of God is living and active and powerful; Prayer warriors use the sword of the Spirit in spiritual warfare!
Need a Prayer Guide to get you started?
I love to use the Acronym H.E.A.R.T.S. (The inspiration for it came from this PDF on Taking Prayer to the Street by prayer walking which is Amazing). First, we pray for ourselves then turn our focus to our friends, our family, our co-workers, our neighbors, the congregation at church, our life groups, and the staff (Including their spouses). Use this guide as a starting point, or pray the scripture out loud as a Powerful Prayer Strategy.
- H – Pray that Hearts will be softened to receive a word from God (Ezekiel 36:26; Luke 8:5-15)
- E – Pray that our spiritual Eyes and Ears will be open to receive and apply the truth God speaks. (Acts 26:18; Matthew 13:15)
- A – Pray that our Attitudes will be adjusted to see sin as God sees sin. (Luke 15:7; James 2:10)
- R – Pray that lives will be Released from strongholds, footholds, and snares of the enemy that keep us from following God fully surrendered. (2 Corinthians 10:3-4; 2 Timothy 2:25-26)
- T – Pray that lives will be Transformed from living as Christian in name only to living as true disciples of Christ. (John 8:31-32; 1 John 2: 3-6)
- S – Pray that we would Stand united; one as the Body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 1:10; Colossians 3:13-14; John 17:23)
I believe God to move in a powerful way and bring the revival we desperately need!
