And pray in the Spirit always with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and keep on praying for all the saints.
Let’s tear this apart, in context.
And… What was before this…
Ephesians 6:17 The bible is speaking about the helmet of salvation which is part of the armor of God just being described in this chapter.
Now we are getting some where..
Whenever we see an and, therefore, when, so that, or because we really do want to go back and read to see what they are talking about to get the full relevance on the text.
After pondering the full armor of God, Paul says.. And pray always..in the Spirit..
When you have put on the helmet of salvation, the righteous breastplate, the belt which is truth of God’s word only, the feet to take peace with you wherever you go, and the faith that protects you and the word of God which fights for you.. Pray always.. After you do that.. you will need only constant communion with God and no one more than Him! Pray Always in the spirit!
