2. Eph. 6:10-18 Battling Spiritually and Clashing with the Unseen Ephesians 6:10-18

2. Battling Spiritually and Clashing with the Unseen Ephesians 6:10-18

John Calvin in his journaling of the Institutes says that if we do not pray, we are like a person who neglects a treasure, buried and hidden in the earth, after it has been pointed out to us.

It’s so easy and typical to get hobbled and stagger by all the mysteries of prayer.  Before we realize it our scheduled times of communion are stifled. Then our voice becomes muffled as we asphyxiated where they’re our little to no expressions to our source of power over problems. We must cry out in continual dependence on the Lord as He’s asked us too.

I’m going to jump ahead in Ephesians to the 6th Chapter verses 10-18.

I’ll begin by presenting a prayer outline of the section as an overview and then hope to break it down a piece at a time in a scrutiny of personal inspection and breakdown analysis.
