“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

“Go behind the scenes!” “See the making of!” “Learn the true story!”

These days, our voyeuristic society extends even to knowing everything about how our entertainment is produced. Documentaries and “special features” show us what it looks like on the other side of the camera. It’s a whole different picture than the “official” images.

The Bible lets us in on a little behind-the-scenes action as well. We can’t see it, and most of the time forget it even exists. But there is a spirit realm all around us. It’s real. And there are battles being waged there every day. Just because it’s on the other side of the camera, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening!

This is where our prayer life is so important. We can affect the outcomes of these battles when we stand firm in prayer. Our lost loved ones, our children’s futures, world affairs – we can make a difference. God’s word would not have instructed us to pray in these areas if that weren’t the case.

Stay diligent in seeking Him. When you feel an urge to pray for someone, do it. Be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit. Remember, there is a whole other scene being played out, and you have a part!
