In the movie War Room, the heroine prayer warrior, Miss Clara, states emphatically that praying people must have a “prayer strategy.” After trying many things that got her nowhere, she says:
Then I started really studying what the Scriptures say, and God showed me that it wasn’t my job to do the heavy lifting. No. That was something that only He could do. It was my job to seek Him, to trust Him, and to stand on His Word. (Chris Fabry, War Room: Prayer Is a Powerful Weapon, Kindle Edition, 90.)
This valiant warrior also shares her method for developing a prayer strategy. Her husband's position in a WWII War Room served as an analogy for Miss Clara's own approach to combating the enemy through prayer:
[Miss Clara] knew enough about warfare to realize that tucked away in some place protected from the onslaught of bullets and bombs, someone had developed a strategy. …She pictured her husband staring at maps and coordinates. Sweaty and tired and scared, he and his men would analyze what the enemy was doing and mobilize resources to push back against their advance (Fabry, 2-3).
Analyzing what the enemy is doing in America, immediately, we recognize multiple areas under heavy artillery fire that need the power of God to push back against their advance: the swamp of Washington D.C., leftist judges, state governments, healthcare system, southern border, social justice activism, persecution of Christians and Christianity, anti-Semitism, racism against whites and blacks, race baiting from elected officials and paid hacks, disregard for authority, disregard for human life, the welfare state, universities and leftist professors, all educational levels' indoctrination of leftist ideas and rewriting of history, mainstream media, drug epidemic, the popularity of socialism, political NGOs, political corruption, anti-American citizens, the unholy alliance between the left and bloodthirsty pagans, illegal aliens, anti-First Amendment leftists, intolerant leftists, leftist violence, subversion of the Constitution by Democrats and their donors, "progressive" churches who worship the golden calves of leftists and do their will in return, etc.
The old dragon has trained, hardened, and stationed his sinister soldiers throughout these areas (and others). Though satan stands defeated, there’s definitely more going on than we can see.
We must always heed the many admonitions of Jesus and His apostles urging us to "Stay awake!" "Keep watch!" and "Be Alert!" (Mark 13:33-37, etc.).
