In military terms, a War Room is dedicated to strategy and communication. What’s your strategy to communicate with God?
Create a War Room
For instance, the movie War Room emphasized dedicated spaces for prayer. Is this a necessary step for a successful prayer life? Only you can answer that question.
The Gospels mention that Jesus often went off alone to pray. Secluded prayer instructions are in Matthew 6:5-6: “And when you come before God, don’t turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show out of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” The Message
Above all, consider your personal situation and preferences. Are you able to find a private place where you can speak, sing, or cry openly to God? If your home life makes that a challenge, try creating a prayer room. Visit my haveagather Pinterest Board to get war room ideas.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Living Bible: “It is true that I am an ordinary, weak human being, but I don’t use human plans and methods to win my battles. I use God’s mighty weapons, not those made by men, to knock down the devil’s strongholds. These weapons can break down every proud argument against God and every wall that can be built to keep men from finding him. With these weapons I can capture rebels and bring them back to God and change them into men whose hearts’ desire is obedience to Christ.”
