Prayers for protection

A couple of my really close friends have husbands who are currently in Afghanistan, and I have another good friend whose husband will be there very soon.  This morning, I felt led to pray strongly for these soldiers, and for their families – for protection and comfort.  It’s no secret that things are challenging over there, and that there is spiritual warfare involved in addition to the war on terror.  It is critical then, that we as Christians bind together and send our prayers to the Lord on their behalf.

Will you join me today and say a prayer for our soldiers and this war they are fighting – for wisdom, discernment, and a safe arrival back home?  Will you pray for their loved ones back home – that they will seek the Lord and He will give them a comfort and peace that only He can give?

As one of my close friends said to me this morning…God is bigger than any statistics!  We serve a mighty God who is in control of all things and who can work miracles beyond our wildest imagination.  Be bold, and ask Him to return our soldiers safely home.

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me.” (Psalm 138:7)

*************************************

“Contend, LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me. Take up shield and armor; arise and come to my aid.  Brandish spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Say to me, “I am your salvation.”

May those who seek my life be disgraced and put to shame; may those who plot my ruin be turned back in dismay. May they be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them away; may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them.

Since they hid their net for me without cause and without cause dug a pit for me, may ruin overtake them by surprise—may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit, to their ruin. Then my soul will rejoice in the LORD and delight in his salvation. 

My whole being will exclaim,  “Who is like you, LORD? You rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them.”” (Psalm 35:1-10)

*************************************

“My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior— from violent people you save me.” (2 Sam 22:3)
