Here is an example of a prayer that one of the prayer warriors may say for a full day to ensure that special intentions are heard by God:
My *insert special intention* is in dire straits right now. I humbly ask you to hear this continuous prayer in the belief that you will look kindly on these intentions and bring comfort or healing to this special person. In your name I pray, Amen.
Prayer Warriors of the Bible
The Bible can help us to feel not only closer to God but it can also help us feel a connection to the people that are in the Bible.

Prayer Warriors Who Were Saints
Whether they have been making prayers for healing or simple prayers for strength, over the centuries, there are numerous holy people that are considered to be among some of the most influential prayer warriors such as:
- St. Faustina Kowalska
Without question, St. Faustina Kowalska is one of the most powerful prayer warriors. Over the course of her life, Jesus Christ appeared to her and taught her how to make a Chaplet of Divine Mercy prayer request. Although she passed away at a relatively young age, she died knowing that God would be there for her and with her as she transitioned from this life into the next due to the fact that she maintained an open line of communication with him through her prayers.
- St. Padre Pio
St. Padre Pio, born Pio da Pietrelcina, lived a very holy life. During his life, he began to experience signs of the stigmata which is one of the holiest gifts that God can bestow on a person during their lifetime. Although he struggled with this blessing, he continued to maintain his relationship with God through continuous prayer. Today, many people make St. Padre Pio prayer requests in hopes that they will be able to grow their faith in the same way that he did.
- St. Jude
Without question, St. Jude faced a number of challenges in his life. Being one of the 12 apostles of Jesus Christ during a time when so many people were persecuting Christians, St. Jude preached the word of God in the face of potential life threatening challenges. He would become one of the first martyrs of the church. His strong faith is part of what makes him one of the most powerful prayer warriors of the faith. Catholics often make St. Jude prayer requests in hopes that they will be able to maintain the strong faith that St. Jude kept.
Ways To Become One of the Powerful Prayer Warriors

Often, a person can be so immersed in what is going on in their life that they forget that part of prayer is to be present with God in every way possible. Set aside a special time in your day that you can exclusively devote to God. Put your phone down, step away from any of the other electronic devices that you may have around you and simply enjoy the presence of God.
- Share your faith
Being unapologetically unashamed of your faith is an indicator of a powerful prayer warrior. Understanding your faith and being able to share your faith with other people can help you to develop your own faith and prayer life.
