3 Steps to Becoming an Ultimate Prayer Warrior

prayer warriorIn this blog post, I’ll discuss three steps to becoming an ultimate prayer warrior.

First, you need to keep God the number one priority in your life and surrender your ALL to Him.

Second, you need to nourish yourself with His word.

Third, you need to pray aggressively and believe that God will answer your prayers.

What is Prayer?

Wikipedia’s definition of prayer is “an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with a deity, an object of worship, or a spiritual entity through deliberate communication”.

We are inviting God to do a work in our lives by communicating with Him directly when we pray.

God desires to be closer to you. He will draw nearer to you with every prayer. The more you commune with Him, the more He will commune back with you through that internal voice (i.e. God speaking directly to you through the Holy Spirit), others (i.e. God sends a message to you through someone else), or even through your dreams.

God loves to commune with you in the early mornings – to be the first thought on your mind.

What is a Warrior?

Wikipedia’s definition of a warrior is “a person skilled in combat or warfare”. You are doing spiritual warfare when you pray.

Prayer fights off the enemy’s attacks. The enemy is the devil and all demonic forces. They hate it when you pray.

Remember, this battle is not yours. Let God fight the spiritual battle for you. You do this through prayer.

Alone you can do nothing, but with God, all things are possible!

Surrender to the Lord

First, you have to surrender to the Lord to become a prayer warrior. He needs to be your priority!

You need to decrease so that He can increase in you. Keep your focus on Him.

Remember, the Holy Spirit resides in you once you are saved. You have to die to your flesh. You become a new creature in Christ and need to renew the spirit of your mind in order to be Christ-minded.

Romans 8:13 says, “For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit, you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live”.

Meditate on the Lord’s Word

Second, you need to meditate on the Lord’s Word (i.e. the Holy Bible) day and night!

You have to read your bible on a daily basis. Get the Word in you. It will come in handy, especially in difficult times. Memorize key verses.

praying and reading the BibleAlways ask God to give you wisdom and understanding before you start reading, so that you will discern what He is attempting to show you in the scripture you read.

Remove distractions while you are studying His Word.

Do not rush through scripture.

Be silent and wait with a pen and paper to journal what the Lord reveals to you through His Word.

Psalm 1:2 “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night”.

Psalm 143: 5 “…I meditate on all your works…”

Psalm 119:169 “…Give me understanding according to your word”.

Have Faith in the Lord’s Ability & Desire to Answer Your Prayer

Third, you must believe that God can and will answer your prayers. Have faith. Nothing is impossible with the Lord! He can work miracles on your behalf!

Not only do you have to know that God can and will answer your prayers, but you need to believe that He can and will answer your prayers today!

Have a today mentality. Trust Him.

Psalm 146:5 – 6 says, “Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the Lord his God, Who made heaven and earth, The sea, and all that is in them…”


You should work daily to become a prayer warrior. Pray when you rise, throughout the day, and before you go to sleep. Put God first in your life. Let the first thing you do every day be to commune with Him.

Make it a priority to read your bible daily. Meditate on what you have read and let it settle in your heart. Fast from time to time. God will strengthen you through His Word!

Lastly, believe that God is able and willing to answer your prayer requests TODAY. You have to believe in order to receive and you’ll be amazed at what He will do.

    It is our responsibility to encourage & motivate, not only fellow Saints, but to take the Godpel to the loss. We should do what Jesus used his Ministry to accomplish while he walked this Earth! I know thats the reason he traveled with his deciples, trainning them to be ambasador’s for the Kingdom! Let’s accept & obey his command to go into all the World…AMEN?

    Please help pray for me to understand the word of God and live by it. I try hard to submit to God but I do not feel it in me and I feel like I am very far from Him. I used to read the bible all the time but suddenly I feel like I have no time. I am facing a lot of difficulties and I have gone through all possible solutions I thought could help me get back on my feet and be normal. I feel like I am drowning and have nowhere to turn to. I occasionally fast and pray but I don’t seem to be getting positive results. What could be the problem or where do I go wrong? Please help me grow in my faith. Thank you.

      Dear DP, may Gods peace and mercy be with you always. God loves you very much. He yearns a relationship with you. You have to always depend of His grace and love and mercy. Don’t depend on nothing else but His. Jeremiah 29:13 is a scripture you should meditate. Surrender your life to Him and let Him know that you can not go on without Him. Tell Him you need Him. Tell Him you are hungry or ask for hunger for Him(Word). May God bless you by His precious glorious grace. I declare blessing for your life. Peace be with you always. Understand you are always loved.

      -By His grace, a servant of God.

      PS Watch a movie called “War room” that just came out in the movies. God bless you.

    I will pray for God to renew the spirit of your mind and give you a revelation of His Word. You need to start reading the bible daily and commune with the Lord Jesus Christ daily. Everyone goes through difficulties, but the difference with a Christian, is that you will come through those difficulties when you keep your focus on God. He is with His people. You may need to go to a quiet place sometimes and focus on Him, in silence, to hear His voice. The Holy Spirit will speak to you. (John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”) Also, I recommend that you accept Jesus Christ into your heart again and give yourself whole-heartedly to Him. Then practice trusting God. Ask Him to show you the areas in your life that you need to change. Then be obedient. Fasting and praying will be stifled by unbelief.

    Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith, it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and the He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”

    You may choose to join a church to receive encouragement and have fellowship with other believers. I hope this helps you grow in your faith. You are welcome.

  8. Rosalind says:

    Prophetess Martin says, Hi DP, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit has three distinctive personalities, yet all 3 or 1. You have to acknowledge and seek out the right personality to help you in your time of trouble or need. When you or trying to study the word of God and learn of Him or even draw closer to Him you need to call upon the Spirit of God,the Holy Spirit. John 14: 26 says but the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have said to you. The Father never leaves us, we may leave Him but He’s there with open arms waiting for our return. Repent in Jesus name and forget your past, walk into the spirit of your future in the name of Jesus Christ by the power of God. Proverbs chapter 1 is a great start when drawing close to God our Father. Your face book name will always be lifted up before God for your faith and strength in our Lord Jesus Christ by Me, be blessed forever more. Amen.

    My dearest brothers and sisters in Christ, please pray for me for God to deliver me from all my sins. I have hurt so many people in my life intentionally and unintention including God and I’m now lonely and depressed, I have lost wisdom and knowledge, I see myself doing things that I don’t like that’s including fornication which I hate the most. All I want from God is to restore the beauty of me, I want a new life with him and I want him to use me for his glory.

    when i was a child i remember always praying when the children went to the altar at church, and my grandmother being so proud of me. so she decided to have me read prayers from daily bible verse, but i could never remember what to say. but i did pray from my heart. i do believe that is the key to being a prayer warrior. pray from your heart. not only does God judge the heart, but when you pray from the heart your can’t go wrong. i will take pride in becoming a prayer warrior, for i delight in the things where im weak because where i am weak God will make me strong.

  15. Angela says:

    Please lift Casey and I in prayer for God’s divine favor and blessings. Pray the Holy Spirit work in both of us to bring us closer in love, understanding, compassion, patience and loyalty. Pray we enter the next phase of our relationship before marriage with excitement and patience, each yielding to the other as God would have. Pray any strongholds over either of us are broken that we can enter marriage as one without baggage or reservations.

    I had a homeless man tell me that I am a prayer warrior. When I asked him what he meant he told me I was being anointed as a prayer warrior to pray for others. He asked me if I accepted it – I said yes.
