    Nathaniel; You say good words, that are so important! As to the efficacy of prayer of a righteous man; in Daniel 9 the man of God was reflecting on the Scriptures and praying and confessing and fasting about the things he read; and while he was doing these things there was great battle in the spirit world of the heavens for the sake of bringing God's answer and understanding to Daniel.

    Paul was in prison when he wrote Ephesians. Tychicus was there with him, and it is a blessing that he was. Paul told us how to fight against the evil spirits and he even gave us instructions on how to dress. Putting on the whole armour, it is all there verses 11 through 18. I love it. If we follow this advice we cannot miss.
