Get Ready to Rumble with “Prayer Warrior” Stormie Omartian

Reblogged from Words in High Def

Words like “supernatural” and “spirit realm” can be frightening or off-putting, but for believers that should not be the case. If you believe what God’s word says, there is no doubt that there is an unseen enemy at work in our lives. The magnificent news? We have the power to win the battle….with one condition: We have to engage in warfare.

I loved doing a recent interview with Diane Markins. We were talking about my book PRAYER WARRIOR and during the conversation I clearly recognized that she is a powerful prayer warrior herself. She understands the power of prayer to resist the enemy’s attempts to work his evil plans in our life. We both know that the enemy comes to destroy our marriages, health, children, finances, mind, and to get us off the path God has for us. And we know how to resist him in prayer so that the plans of God will succeed in our lives.

It has been my goal in writing this book to take the scary out of spiritual warfare. We are all in this spiritual war whether we recognize it or not. And many of us are getting wounded by enemy fire without realizing it because we don’t understand how to protect ourselves with the spiritual armor God has given us, nor do we understand what our spiritual weapons are and how to do battle in prayer. Too many of us think that because we win one battle the war is over. But the truth is that the war is never over. Yes Jesus defeated the enemy, but the enemy is still here. And God wants us to learn how to oppose his evil plans in prayer. Prayer is how God works on earth. Our spiritual warfare is waged in prayer.

There are too many good things that won’t happen if we are not praying. And there are also terrible things that will happen if we don’t pray. I wrote this book because I saw too many people being destroyed for lack of knowledge about this subject. And that is why I am so grateful to Diane for asking me to be on her radio program and share this with her listeners. Thank you, Diane. It is a pleasure to be with someone who understands the importance of spiritual warfare, especially considering the times we are now in.

  • Stormie is one of my favorite authors!! The Power of Praying series helped save my marriage. When my husband and I were struggling and the enemy was attacking our relationship, a friend of ours encouraged us to read The Power of a Praying Husband. It was exactly what we needed! Thank you, Stormie, for reminding me that “prayer is how God works on earth and our spiritual warfare is waged in prayer.” Thank you, Diane, for spreading more awareness about this topic.

    “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful” (Colossians 4:2).

      Danielle, thanks for sharing that encouraging info about the value of prayer (and input from Stormie) that helped reshape your marriage.

  • Hester Crow-Christensen

    Stormie, I have been blessed by several of your books. I must say, I’m excited to hear of this new one — so needed — One of the most impactful Bible studies I’ve done was on the Armor of God and our essential need for this provision from God. I tell the ladies I teach, “We cannot fight naked! Get dressed and stand firm sisters!” 🙂 God bless you! Hester

    • Diane Markins

      Hester, I can’t tell you how many battles I’ve fought naked. It makes us very vulnerable and is so unnecessary. Thx for sharing.

    When the enemy attacks there is only one viable weapon – Jesus. Stormie Omartin pulls scriptures together with phenomenal wisdom that will help to increase your faith and take your prayer life to a whole new level.

    Stormie reminds us that no matter what the denomination, church affiliation or if you are reformed or Armenian – Christ and the power of His Word is the common denominator and His Word is the sword we all draw when fighting these spiritual battles on earth.

    Definitely an author where one of her books is never enough! I always purchase 2 in order to share with others and build my army of prayer-warriors.

    • Diane Markins

      Holly, I agree. Stormie’s books are great to have on hand for people “just in case”…

  • Judy Williams Cox

    Each of Stormie’s books on prayer places a significance on the enemy’s ability and intent to undermine our close relationship with our Savior and Lord. Even when we are aware that Jesus told us He has overcome the world, we must come to the battle front fully equipped with the full armor He supplied for those who belong to Him, found in Ephesians 6.
    The privilege of being called a Prayer Warrior is such an honor because of the vibrant, passionate relationship one can achieve with our all-sufficient and Holy God.He has given us everything we need for life and godliness and fervent prayer is our lifeline through The Vine.
    Thank you, Stormie, for continuing to be obedient to God’s call as He equips you to encourage and teach us through your books on prayer.

    Stormie’s book The Power of a Praying Wife was such a blessing to me on my prayer journey through some difficult times. God answered so many of those prayers for my husband, myself and our marriage! Looking forward to reading Prayer Warrior, we all need to know who we are “In Christ” and the weapons we have to claim victory. Thank you
