I have been watching a great show on television!   It’s called “Person of Interest.”  The theme is about this guy who used to be Special Forces who was just drinking and walking around lost who gets recruited to be a vigilante to save the lives of intended victims…(or their intended victims). 

 

It’s a good show in theory. 

 

The “targeted” person is called the “person of interest.”  The hero played by Jim Caviezal (who played Jesus Christ in The Passion Of Christ) zones in to find out what’s going on and gets in a reverses the evil intentions of “whoever,” to save the person of interest.

Prayer is so critical because we are in a war. 

Ephesians 6:10-19

New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,

 

Notice how the above passage talks about how you must be ready and caps it off with prayer.  WHY?

 

Because you are a person of interest to the forces of darkness.   If you don’t get that…I don’t have enough time to teach it to you.  But, I will pray for you…that’s what I do.
