Overcoming Satan’s Fiery Darts

Your ActionSatan or Your ConscienceThe Affirmation of Scripture
You simply mention name after name from a long listThis is a meaningless and vain repetitionWe give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers (1 Thessalonians 1:2)
You are going through the day and a name pops into your head and you throw up a prayerDo you call this a prayer life?I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy. (Philippians 1:3-4)
You're pretty sure your prayers don't reach the ceilling and you run out of what to say after five minutesIf you were closer to God your prayers would have some value and you would know what to say. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infimities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercessions for us with groanings which connot be uttered. and he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of hte Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. (Romans 8:26-27)
You prayed a while and then stoppedYou're suppose to pray without ceasingAnd it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. (Luke 11:1)
You spent a long time prayingYou begin to be filled with pride because of the long prayerAnd it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. (Luke 6:12)
You keep prayer time organized; you don't let praise digress to thanksgiving or prayer timeYou're too organized; let the Spirit lead; let each pray-er say what he feels ledWhoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation alright will I shew the salvation of God (Psalm 50:23)
You wake up in the middle of the night and make prayers or give thanksOk, so you give God the least of your energy - big dealWhen I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. (Psalm 63:6)
You have no desire to pray, but wish you didIf you loved God you would have desireFor the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. (Romans 7:19); O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin (Romans 7:24-25)
You prayerd only two or three times for something or someoneYou won't get any answers if you don't preservereFor this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. ( 2 Corinthians 12:8) - Paul only prayed three times for the thorn in his flesh
Your prayer is well thoguht out for public edificationYou're like a Pharisee praying to be thought of as holy and respected by menThen they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always; but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. (John 11:41-42)
You spend time talking to other believers about the Lord but never get around to prayingYou've gathered in teh name of the Lord and waste you time in "fellowship"Then they that feared teh LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. (Malachi 3:16)
You prayed for direction but you run into dead ends over and overSin in you life; you're not as spiritual as others; you just don't listen when God speaksNow when they had gone throughtout Phrygia and region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to breach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. (Acts 16:6-7)
