Spiritual Warfare

Those of you who don't believe in it and don't want to know about it can skip this one. The rest of you ...

Disclaimer - my spiritual life at the present moment absolutely stinks, but when the Holy Spirit tells you to do something, you do it.

Twice in less than 24 hours I have been led to not only pray, but pray hard for a friend. Get down on my knees, bow down in supplication, pour out my heart pray. I'm crying now as I write this at an hour I am normally asleep.

I don't know what's going on in this person's life. We don't talk much anymore. We don't live in the state. We have a few mutual friends and that's how I am kept aware of generalities. Something in the last week has happened. I don't know what. All I know is that since it was brought to my attention I've been preternaturally worried and concerned. And every time I think about contacting this person, instead of doing so, I am led to pray as if a life depended on it. And the words and outpouring of emotion, supplication, prayers for strength, comfort, guidance, wisdom, more comfort, to remind this person to seek and lean on God through this time ... they aren't my words or how I generally pray. And on my knees too, bowed down before the Throne.

This is not how I generally pray. This is not me. I know I haven't given you much to go on, but if you are led to pray for a perfect stranger with no knowledge of their circumstances, please join with me.

I wish I knew more to share. But the strange *urgency* has me scared, and honestly, all I can do is pray.


  1. You should still give them a call if possible - even leave a VM if necessary. I hope everything works out.

    Lovely post, btw.

  2. I agree with Tyrone, give this friend a call you might not have the chance again.

    Something of the same sort happen to me with my son being moved by God to call me to urge me to get to the hospital back in 2001.

    You see , my body was going into full shut down due to a life long health issue I had with my intestines. He kept calling , I kept just wanting to sleep it off....

    I am here today because my son was used by God to get me to the hospital for life saving surgery...

    You may not be able to do anything phyical for you friend, but just knowing you are in her corner is always confort.

  3. Thanks to both Tyrone and Debbie. I have called the last good number I had and it's been disconnected. Right now I just hover and watch through other friends and some social media.

    Things are strained between us, so all I can do is watch and let him know I still care. And pray.
