Let us pray:
Lord we thank you for keeping us through the night. We thank you for commanding and allowing your angels of security to protect us from dangers in, around, and outside of our house.
If we are honest, we often feel trapped and surrounded by the enemy:
- We have enemies because we are Americans.
- We have enemies because we believe you are the true and living God.
- We have enemies because we believe that Jesus is your Son.
- We have enemies because of the color of our skin.
- We have enemies in our own mind.
- We have enemies who walk around with weapons and are pressured into destroying our communities all for association.
- We have enemies of disease and illnesses.
Although we recognize that the enemy comes in like a flood, WE WILL NOT SURRENDER. Lord you told us that you would hold up a standard against Him, which basically means you will drive the enemy out.
“So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19 NKJV
I know that it is impossible for you to lie, so I have no other option BUT to believe you.
I’m not coming out with my hands up waving NO flag of defeat to the devil and his imps.
I would not live in this evil and cruel world without you because it’s hopeless, sad and depressing. But even in the midst of it all, you require us to be a light.
You said no weapon formed will prosper. Jesus we are walking through this valley of death but we will not fear because you are with us. You said you are with us and you won’t leave us.
The ONLY way that I won’t have your protection is if I’m leaving. WHELP… Looks like we are stuck. I’m not leaving you! I’m not living without you. I’m not breathing without you.I cannot afford NOT to have you in my life.
Lead us and help us to navigate through this world to pull someone else out the hands of despair, self-pity, depression, and anger, that they may experience your unfailing love and protection.
I will not surrender to the enemy’s tactics. I will not surrender to the will of the enemy. I will not give up; but I will surrender to your will. For I know that if I resist…if I resist…if I resist, the enemy will flee, but I. MUST. RESIST. FIRST!!!
I humbly ask that you accept this prayer, in your precious Son Jesus’ name, amen.
