A prayer…

Father we know how much you love your children both those that have already come home and those not yet returned

Give us your heart, that we would not only be concerned with our own matters, but that we would reach out a hand to the ones in need

Even in those times when we can’t physically do anything, please remind us that we could always pray

Thank you that your light shines through our eyes

Your love is seen and known through a smile

We must not forsake the broken

We must not overlook the wounded

We must lift up the weak

We must shield the lonely

We are called to bear one another’s burdens

We are called to weep with those who weep….

Please stop for a moment today and pray for the desolate, the hurting, the broken and the weary

Father, give us your heart that may live not for ourselves but for the other person….

The lord is with you…mighty warrior

These words were spoken to a man who was hiding from the enemy

Today, these same words are still reverberating from eternity into time

These words are for the weary, the downtrodden, the cast-away, the one who feels like giving up, the one who is hiding in shame, the one who feels abandoned, the one who has listened to the lies of the enemy for so long…

If the lord is with me then… why?

Why am I still in this painful situation?

Why is my mind in turmoil?

Why am I alone?

 

But this same enemy that you see this day, the one that appears to cling to you

You will destroy, with your own hands

You are the one, who will trample your enemy into the dust

Go in this your might that I have clothed you in, Am I not sending you?

Papa says, ” I am the strength of your life.”

He says, “through me you will leap over every wall, you will run through a troop.”

 

We are not called to a battle with people; we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood

We fight against powers and spiritual wickedness in high places..

As we turn our hearts to the one who loves forever

As we fix our gaze upon the lover of our souls

He will cause a sound to be heard from mouths …a battle cry, a roar of triumph, a song that will pierce through the darkness

 

Don’t give up dear one …you are not forgotten

The lord is with you…mighty warrior
