If you were inspired to create a War Room but not sure what to do next, we got you covered with 5 War Room Scriptures! Take your prayer life to a new level with war room scriptures to prepare you for spiritual battle.
War Room Scriptures
Most of us don’t have a problem going to God with what we need. However, our War Room isn’t a place to just to give God a list of demands. It’s a place to commune with Him, and stand in the gap for others.
So whether we’re praying for ourselves or others, we have found 5 scriptures that have shaped our prayers, and would be a great start to your War Room.
Note: These War Room Scriptures are also available to download in our FREE community library under the faith section.
John 14:14 (The Message) “From now on, whatever you request along the lines of who I am and what I am doing, I’ll do it. That’s how the Father will be seen for who he is in the Son. I mean it. Whatever you request in this way, I’ll do.”
We keep this verse posted on our wall to remind us that while we are going before the Father in prayer, our prayers must line up with His word and His will.
There’s a devotional we keep in our war room called Sparkling Gems. While we were praying and reading this morning, there was a statement the author wrote that brings clarity to John 14:14.
“As long as your prayer is based on the Word of God, you can have the assurance of God’s promise regarding the issue you are most concerned about.”~Rick Renner
God is so good! He always confirms what He places on our heart to share with our readers!
Matthew 6:14-15 (NLT) “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
Jesus set the example of how we should pray in the Lord’s Prayer found in Matthew 6. Jesus tells us, when we pray, ask God to forgive us for our sins, examine our own heart, and forgive anyone who may have hurt us.
Unforgiveness, can hinder our prayers, so it’s important that before we petition the Lord for anything, we must take the time to make sure our heart is right with God and with others.
Ephesians 6:11-17 (NLT) “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
Remember when we are praying, we are fighting spiritual battles that take place in our everyday life. Like an army getting ready for war, we must prepare for battle. Which means we need to get our war plans and put on our armor from the Lord.
This scripture reminds us that our battles are not in the natural-against people. Rather, our battles are spiritual, and need to be fought in the spirit.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 (NLT) “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.This is good and pleases God our Savior,”
It doesn’t matter where you live, God’s instructions for us to pray for those in authority applies to everyone. Whether we like those in authority or not, as Christians, we have an obligation to pray for them.
We keep a world map on the wall as a reminder to pray for all of those in authority around the world! John 3:16 is also written as a reminder that God so loved the world, He gave His only-begotten son so they can have eternal life.
This encourages us to pray not only for those in authority but for others around the world to come to know Jesus Christ.
Job 42:10 (NKJV) “And the Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.”
We love the story of Job and how God restored him. This is one of our favorite verses in the book of Job. Because it showed how Job took his prayers off himself; and stood in the gap for others.
As much as we pray for ourselves; it is even more important to pray for others. And this scripture reminds us to pray for others who have a need.
Beyond 5 War Room Scriptures
Our wall is packed with; scriptures, post-it notes, corked boards and a white board with prayer requests. But it didn’t start out that way. Our wall started with scriptures on index cards that we prayed. Then our wall grew, as our prayer life grew, while we spent time in our War Room.
In The End
Don’t feel any pressure that your wall needs to be filled to start praying. You only need to start praying! These scriptures are just the beginning to what God will give you during your time with Him.
So, we ask you, now that you meet Him, what are praying for?
