Spiritual Warfare
2 Cor 10:3
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.

Our weapons:
Ephesians 6:16-19
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to
quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which
is the word of God:
6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.







It's the time of the month that we will be spending a 48 hour prayer vigil!

The theme for this month is to remember that we are in a fierce spritual warfare
in this world, that's why we have to be equipped with God's truths and instructions
to fight that battle.

Prayer is one of the very effective weapons to fight the spiritual enemies.

Therefore let us continue to be bold in our relentless prayers.


Let us thank our Almighty God for continous strength and undying hope!
His promise is that HE will never leave us nor forsake us..

We are always filled with joy as HE continued to amaze us with all the
answered prayers HE blessed us with. As we continue to pray with
confidence, we believe that HE will always answer our prayers according to
HIS will and plan, so together we will continue to lift up all our concerns!

We are inviting everyone to join & pray with us in spirit and in truth.

Thank you Forum owner & moderators for allowing this special event to happen here.

God bless us all!

The idea is many centuries old. "Vigil"
indicates a time of "vigilance", wakefulness, a watch, originally "kept
on the night before a religious feast with prayer or other devotions".


Since 2006, every month we set aside forty eight hours for our people to pray for
an hour at a time in the privacy of their homes and hearts. We have been posting this intentions in this message board, thanks to the owner and moderator.

People often feel so inadequate at prayer, they don't want set
themselves up to fail. To allay these hesitations we post
suggestions on how to pray, what to pray and most importantly WHO we pray to..
As we begin to visualize ourselves actually praying for an hour, we are
more willing to risk it. We post prayer concerns, prayer suggestions and
often times some inspirational messages, biblical
expository and more to help us focus on our Lord Jesus Christ.

In here, we encourage people to pray the way they feel most
comfortable. There are different positions
when praying. There's no right or wrong as long as you're heart is
geared towards Him. Sincere intentions and prayer from our hearts
that God surely know. There are those who are kneelers when they pray,
some people pray sitting with bowed heads. But some walk while they
pray. Occasionally someone prays prostrate on the floor.
Some people pray in groups, some alone, some in twos. they often
worship and pray as a group for a part of the time, then intercede
separately for the remainder of the hour.

We do some singing as well as praying. It brought a closeness we just
don't experience ordinarily. I feel like we're still closer today than
we would have been otherwise." Strangely, even praying alone brings a
sense unity with others. "Knowing that brothers and sisters are all
praying about the same thing really stirs up my faith. We believe that
we're going to receive answers."

Sometimes there seem to be so many distractions and interruptions. You
think about all the things that need doing. But when you come to the
quiet sanctuary, you really can feel God's presence. Find a place where
you can be alone and just pour out your hearts to our Living God who
listens intently to our cries. Then you will sense the Lord's presence
in a way. You will find that an hour is refershing and you can spend
even more just communicating with HIM.

Before our first vigil I didn't think most people would be willing to
commit themselves to a whole hour. Not so. Embarking on a significant
time of prayer with nothing else to do helps people put their busyness
aside and concentrate on prayer. After her first vigil, a friend told me
"I just lost track of time. To me there was no time. In fact, I was
praying almost two hours, without realizing it." Cutting the time
short-circuits this broadening prayer experience which can permanently
enrich the participant's devotional life. I remember praying with friends whom I met through this message board. We prayed online or on the phone, certainly distance did not deterred us from doing so. We took advantaged of the technology by praising GOD and trusting HIM with all our concerns over the phone or in the internet. We still do so to this day. Praise GOD for HIS faithful servants whoa re committed to be Prayer Warriors.

The benefits endure. Our committed friends/spritual siblings have learned to intercede for one
another, to care for each other's needs. Having experienced the joys of
a full hour, people are praying longer at home. The vigils have renewed
our motivation, as well. Instead of praying out of guilt, we're finding
a new longing to spend time before the Lord. We've also have seen marked
answers to prayers. Relatives have been saved. Physical healings have
resulted, marriages have been restored, jobs been found, and many more.

We believe that until we meet our GOD and Maker face to face, we will continue to spend time with HIM in Spirit and in Truth through prayers...whether alone or in a group. May our loving GOD help us with our purest intentions to do so.

Let us always remember to pray for our own family, loved ones and friends.

Let's lift them up at all times that they may do GOD's perfect will in their lives.

In the midst of what's going on around the world, let's stay connected with our Heavenly Father because HE alone can do mighty things for us.

There's no reason for us to harbor fears, bitterness and worries because if GOD is with us and for us, who can be against us?

let us pray for:

our children and their future
the global economy
the government leaders (Phil, USA, Canada,Israel etc. and the world leaders)
for the good health of everyone & protection against different disease
the missionaries, preachers and gospel bearers
the safety of our troops
the protection against terrorists and other dangers
the end of war
for our eternal salvation and others,too

let's also pray for:

God's provisions to those who lost their homes, jobs and for those who have financial difficulties
For Physical, Spritual, Emotional And Mental Healing to those who are sick
Restoration to those whose marriages are on the rocks.

May GOD grant peace, comfort for those who lost their loved ones

for God's protection, provisions & perfect will for all of us

for our personal relationship with the Lord that it will be stronger

for our safety and good health at all times

for our genuine dealing with the people around us

for our blessed success not only on temporal but for the eternal glory

for God's divine intervention on their personal prayers & heart's desires

for GOD's righteousness to be real in our life that we will know
what and whom to prioritize - all for the glory of GOD!

that our Powerful God will keep us away from all evils and temptations
and that HE will always shield them from manipulators and users.

May our Loving God guide all of us in every step of the way in
HIS holy will and may we yield ourselves to be used mightily and
powerfully all for GOD's glory!

In JESUS CHRIST's holy name. we pray, AMEN!!!
