Sympathy

Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father, we thank You that You have called us to be courageous, for we know in our heart of hearts, that You will be with us. You tell us to be strong, to put on Your armor, and to prepare for the fight. And even though we know the battle we are facing is spiritual, we still have moments of weakness where we feel all alone on the battlefield. We find in those moments that we believe IN You, but we do not believe You. Forgive us for our cowardice because courage is a necessary requirement in the Christian walk. So, we ask Your Holy Spirit to give us the strength we need to continue the journey You have set before us. And as You do Your part, give us the measure of faith we need to do our part. And as we step out in faith, let us be obedient as we look to You, instead relying on our own strength. In Jesus name, amen.
