I feel silly asking this since I've been around FJ basically forever, but what exactly is a "Prayer Warrior"? I always imagine it as someone praying for wars, or maybe just constantly praying? What does that mean??

The church I used to attend had a prayer warrior group in the older ladies Sunday School class. They were ladies who you could contact when you really needed someone to pray for whatever you’re going through, good or bad. They were women in the church who were known for having a strong faith and it made a lot of people feel better when one of those women were praying for you. 

 

@FrozenSmile looks like we had the same thought at the same time!

So  shamefully I copied Kendra and joes baby #2 announcement for our second kiddo and Im feeling like a total leg humper  i just thought it was a good idea and only cost like 6$ 😩 At least I

Oh, I don’t know, @singsingsing, I think you could rock this outfit anywhere. It goes great with your coloring 😉

The kid is less than one. Save your “boys, amirite?” posts for when he’s ignoring the toy ducks to play with his penis during bath time. Today my daughter ate some lunch. Such a girl, right?

I think there's some variance by denomination/belief system. It's not a fundie specific term and a more mainstream Christian would likely have a very different definition. 

In my more mainstream church it's less spiritual warfare focused and more praying fervently in an intercessory (spelling?) Nature. Like praying for God to intercede in the life if someone who is suffering. Or for a country in turmoil. It was always more heavily focused on praying for something positive as opposed to against something negative. 

Again that's much more mainstream and the *what* will likely vary. I think the main definition would be more around someone who prays fervently and often and likely "well" (ie comfortable praying out loud etc) and or someone who identifies with the spiritual gifts of prayer and or intercession.

@FrozenSmile and @JanasTattooParlor both explained this so much more succinctly than I did.

While I cannot stand the title Prayer Warrior (seems like a contradiction in terms to me), I am one at my Anglican church.

It seems that the “prayer warrior” thing blew up in the mid-2000s, probably due to its use in Republican political rhetoric which you can read about on Wikipedia. It was in use before that, though. See also the fundie movie War Room. Kendra called it her favorite movie in a CO episode; evidently the Caldwell family is really into this concept.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘

      It's Friday so yay!  But sweet Jesus I need it to be the end of the day already.  Crappy week and I'm so ready for it to be over.
