Lord, are You not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of nations. Power and might are in Your hand, and no one can withstand You! If calamity comes upon us, we will stand in Your presence before this temple that bears Your name and will cry out to You in our distress and You will hear us and save us.
Our Mighty Omnipotent God, under Your wings that protect, we seek You most ardently as we face these trials and battles set before us. There is fear, worry, dread and despair. We are weak in fighting these battles raging on in our circumstances.
May we have Your assurance that the battle is Yours. We should not be discouraged or afraid for in due time, we will see Your deliverance. You, Lord, have promised that You will keep us in perfect peace, whose minds are focused on You. If You are for us, who can be against us? Jesus, You have said, in this world we will have troubles but that we should take heart for You have overcome the world. Jehovah Nissi! You reign in victory!
Lord God, we should not fear, for You are with us; we should not be dismayed for You are our God. You will strengthen us and help us; You will uphold us with Your righteous right hand.
Yes, Lord, please help us to be strong in You! For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, authorities, and powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. But God, You have blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ. You have equipped us with the shield of faith with which we can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one who is taking every opportunity to destroy us and our relationships.
Find rest my soul in Christ alone
Hide me now under Your wings
Cover me within Your mighty hand
When the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with You above the storm. Father, You are King over the flood. I will be still and know You are God! Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever, Amen! – Liza Sison, Core Servant PWF
