Prayer is not only communion with God; it is also confrontation with the enemy. When Jesus was on the earth, He came face-to-face with the devil when He was tempted in the wilderness (see Matthew 4 and Luke 4), and every time the enemy tried to tempt Him, Jesus responded with a reference from the Bible. He used the Sword of Truth to defend Himself from the enemy’s attacks. In these exchanges, Jesus didn’t confront the devil as God. He confronted the devil as a man with the Word of God. We should do the same thing.


These spiritual warfare prayers and verses are examples we can use and adapt to our specific situations when we or someone we know is under attack from the devil.

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.



The Prayer of Jabez is a helpful model of a prayer that we can pray every day.

In the Old Testament, the Tabernacle was the dwelling place of God, built to His specifications, where He would meet His people. As they entered the Tabernacle, they passed through seven stations, following God’s instructions, to experience His presence. Today, even though we no longer need the physical Tabernacle to meet with God, these same steps can help us connect with Him. This prayer model will take us through each station of the Tabernacle and use the purpose of each station to guide our prayers.

The Lord’s Prayer is often recited in churches or at religious events, but there’s so much more to this prayer. Jesus provided this model as an outline to teach us how to pray in a way that connects us to God, aligns our priorities with His, and helps us live dependently on Him. This model takes us through each part of The Lord’s Prayer, showing us how to pray the way Jesus instructed.


One day Jesus was praying in a certain place.

When He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray...”

LUKE 11:1


“Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”

Dear Prayer Warrior,


Since before we even began pastoring First Assembly of God, now GraceValley, this church was a praying church. Prayer meetings were formed to pray for a new pastor and leadership team as the church was walking through a transition of leadership, direction and culture. That season of prayer, I believe, is the reason for this church now having the impact that it does not only in the Saginaw Valley area, but all around the world. In all circumstances of life we need to always, “Pray First.” In every situation, whether good or bad, we should pray before we act. Many times people act first and then want God to bail them out of that situation, but prayer should be our first response, not our last resort.


Understanding the necessity of prayer is not enough. In order for it to become a part of our life, it needs to become something we look forward to. I’m convinced most people don’t enjoy prayer because they have never been taught how to pray. That’s where this simple expertise to pray for 21 days straight can revolutionize your entire life and your walk with Christ. Using a few prayer models from the Bible this booklet is designed to help bring joy into your time with God. When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with Him, you’ll experience the presence of God that will change your life.


Once you learn how to pray, prayer can become a part of everyday life.

And then...

Before the day begins —

Before you go to bed —

Before you go to work or school —

Before you send that text —

Before you react —

Before bad things happen —

Before you eat, drive, or travel —

In every situation — PRAY FIRST!


Prayer impacts everything!

Pastor Kurt



Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.

MARK 1:35


Prayer is most effective when it isn’t something we do every now and then, but when it’s a lifestyle we cultivate. To understand how to have a lifestyle of prayer, we can look at the example Jesus gave during His life on earth.

Have A Certain Time
Have A Certain Place
Have A Certain Plan
What Is Fasting?
Have A Certain Time

Jesus got up early in the morning to spend time with His Heavenly Father. Make a daily appointment with God — whether it’s first thing in the morning, at lunch, or in the evening — and faithfully keep it.

Have A Certain Place
Have A Certain Plan
What Is Fasting?

We are desperately hungry for more of Him. So take a step of faith, pray without ceasing, and watch God move in your life, our church, and the world around you!
