      What battles are you facing? You probably don’t have a large army lined up against you, but I’m guessing you have some battles in your life. We all do. For some of us it’s a battle with a particular fear or worry. For others it’s a battle with a particular relationship or potty training or a strong-willed child. For still others it’s a battle with food or alcohol or prescription drugs.

      It’s easy to think that we‘re in the battle alone, and the victory is up to us. But in this Bible passage we read the words, “Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” Dear sweet, fellow mom, are you willing to give the battle over to God and stop trying to fight it on your own? Are you willing to courageously stand against temptation and ask the Lord to do a mighty work? Stand firm, be courageous, listen to the Lord’s instructions, and obey. Trust Him to give you strength!

      My Prayer
      "High King of heaven, I praise You, for You are able to bring victory in my life. You have all the power I need to defeat my enemies! Help me to have the faith and courage to believe and stand firm. Lord, I give all my battles to You. I know I cannot win in my own strength; I need You. Help me to do my part. Thank You for always being with me. In Jesus' Name I pray, amen."

        • Thank you for that lovely prayer.  Sometimes it’s so easy to loose sight of the fact that we are not in this alone.

        • Great prayer.  Thanks for sharing it.  My battle today is physical.  Woe is me, and I’ve had my own little pity party today.  So the prayer you shared is a great reminder that:  I am not alone in this battle and the victory will be the Lord’s. AND He is with me in this!

          Thanks again for sharing.

          Blessings,
          Patti

        • Sometimes you just know when He is working, read your prayer and felt it.  Thanks for sharing.
          Two years ago, after several months of anquish, I closed my eyes, prayed for guidance and opened His book...this was His answer to me...since then, I have never looked back in fear!

                            Psalm 20  

           1 May the LORD answer you when you are in distress;  

                 may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.  

           2 May he send you help from the sanctuary  

                 and grant you support from Zion.
          3 May he remember all your sacrifices  

                 and accept your burnt offerings. Selah
          4 May he give you the desire of your heart  

                 and make all your plans succeed.
          5 We will shout for joy when you are victorious  

                 and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.  

                 May the LORD grant all your requests.
          6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed;  

                 he answers him from his holy heaven  

                 with the saving power of his right hand.
          7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,  

                 but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
          8 They are brought to their knees and fall,  

                 but we rise up and stand firm.
          9 O LORD, save the king!  

                 Answer [a] us when we call!
