I know Satan is hard at work, Father,
now more than ever he is trying to fill the minds
of believers with doubt.
With hopes that we may stumble and fall.
Though some of us might, I pray we get up again.
I pray for each believer, Father,
may each of us remain strong, and stand firm,
remaining unharmed and unmoved,
for after all, we are pillars designed by Your hands
and placed on a foundation, hell has no power over.
Reports surface of Christian persecution,
and both man-made and natural disasters.
May we remember to keep a spirit of prayer at all times.
May all forms of fear be washed from our souls,
that those whose faith is not strong,
learn and be built up.
That those who have not found faith in Jesus Christ
come and find it.
As a young Christian, news of biblical prophecies coming true
was scary for me,
but as Iíve matured, fear has turned to rejoicing.
These things have been told to us; therefore, the news
should come as no surprise.
If these things are coming true then keep the faith,
trusting and knowing that the joy, love, mercy, faithfulness
kindness and all comforts and gifts of the spirit
will be coming as well.
Just as promised.
What use of my hand held shield have I against the spirit world?
What use of man made weapons have I against the spirit world?
My shields are down, my weapons none.
My protection is my faith,
My faith is in You O Lord, Christ Jesus!
Attacks within the physical world strengthen my faith,
for I was told they would come.
Yes, each day brings new attacks,
but as sure as the ressurection of Christ, so is the strength found in knowing His name.
Weíve been told we would face trials and tribulations,
so donít take situations into your own hands,
for weíve also been told that the unbeliever who persecutes
will have even greater trials and tribulations.
May the spirit remind us to keep a spirit of prayer,
not just for our brothers and sisters,
but for our persecutors as well.
May we find joy and happiness each day
as we recall and recognize each blessing that comes our way.
May the same joy and happiness be found in each of our trials too.
I ask this in Jesusí name, Amen.
Thank you, Father, for the love, mercy and faithfulness
revealed to us each day.
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
