Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication

Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication

For the writer of the Ephesians letter, prayer was like armour against the evil in the world, it was like weaponry going into battle against the forces
that were trying to prevent the sharing of the mercy and grace of God with all people. In an Anglo-Celtic culture, this can be a difficult one to
get our heads around. War and battle language prompts different responses than it did 2000 years ago and we need to acknowledge that
when we approach a reading like this.
If I ask you ‘what is prayer?’ what’s your answer? Do you see it as part of a battle against evil? Other ideas?…
