Prayer is not only communion with God; it is also a 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. These are songs and hymns that remind us God provides spiritual armor and equips us to take a stand when battles come our way.
