Lord, you are my weapon and my defense

 


Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. 
With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (Ephesians 6:17-18)


Oh, Lord God,

I feel alone this fight of living,

trudging in a wavering line day in and day out,

toward a distant goal.

I feel isolated and defeated

in a war against me (against YOU)

and a world system that races hell-bent toward destruction.

I wasn't made for this,

and so my soul aches for what I've lost,

what I can't achieve,

and what I think I need.

My spirit groans, even as I remind myself of your truth.

But you are my weapon of defense.

You are my strong tower.

You are my commander and my rear guard.

You are conqueror, king, and savior.

You are victory.

You walk with me through the valley of death.

You seat me in the presence of my enemies.

You offer freedom to me when I've become enslaved by this world.

You give hope when I'm grieving someone's death.

You give me power to defeat my unseen enemies 

and bind evil spirits that war against me.

You are my weapon.

Your word is power.

And I worship you.

In Jesus' holy name,

Amen.
