Prayer the best weapon

In his devotional for Nov. 24, Ed Mathews writes on spiritual warfare. He mentions prayer:

Our strategy. In the end, prayer is the best weapon, Ephesians 6:18a. A saint on his knees makes the devil nervous. And, when prayer is uttered “in the spirit,” satan meets his match, Romans 8:26,27. Therefore, we “should always pray and not give up,” Luke 18:1. It is possible for believers, with one prayerful request, to marshal the mighty battalions of eternity, Matthew 26:53. We have a defeat-proof plan for a sure-fire-victory.

Each Man Fights His War

Blind and weak, O Lord, are we,
So give us strength, and make us see;
As each man fights his war
Against the lion’s roar,
Assured of final victory.

In us the fleshly battles rage,
But we the powers of God engage,
Confessing every need
For will and word and deed,
To gain by faith the eternal age.

Your moving hand among us

God of all power and possibilities, we stand in awe of your moving hand among us. Continue to show your sovereign will on earth. Move things and people toward the kingdom. Open doors, and hearts, and minds.

Prepare us for battle, prepare us for victory, prepare us for the heavy fire thrown against us by the evil one. Stiffen our resolve, give us courage, open our mouths to speak the Good News of Christ.

Show yourself in Christ, send the Spirit among us, dwell in our hearts as we demonstrate faith and obedience to your will.

Forgive our sins, strengthen us in our weakness, open our eyes to our blindnesses.

Be glorified in us, and Christ in you. We desire the day of ending, the day of peace, the day of eternity.

A Morning Prayer of War

The war of Forces waxes strong,
The world is not the only field,
But in my heart the waste of wrong
Would spread destruction if I yield.

Be strength and valor, God, for me,
Let courage meet the rushing foe;
Keep battle-hardened weapons free
To lay the devil’s minions low. Continue reading

In Verdict Valley

In Verdict Valley we face the battle,
The clash and clang of sword and shield,
Midst cries of woe and noise of Babel,
We look to you, O Lord, to wield. Continue reading

Stiffen our spines against the Evil One

We want to be perfect from the start, but you, O Lord, work in us to make us perfect in the end.

We open our hearts that you may have free rein and that your Spirit may work at will. Continue reading

The unwavering line

Purest mind and unmixed motives I seek,
The harder I charge and slash when feeling weak.
A battle lost is not the war surrendered,
Until the Lord returns, the fight’s unended. Continue reading

Not intimidated

Let your people not be intimidated by those who oppose the Way. Let us speak boldly in love, through the power of the Spirit, to proclaim Christ as the only way to you.

Let our conduct be worthy of the gospel so that outsiders may have no ammunition to speak evil of the gospel. Continue reading
