Days of Prayer
Common Defense

To the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Deliver me from my enemies, O God;
protect me from those who rise up against me. Psalm 59:1 (NIV)

We ask for your mercy and your divine favor to be shown
toward us and that you protect this nation from all evil, hurt, harm or
danger.  Thank you for the armed forces
from the commander in chief to the soldiers on the ground.  Surround them with angelic assistance as they
execute their affirmed duties according to Your will. Thank you for giving them
the strength to run through troops and leap over walls; and you give them
wisdom from heaven to know what to do in every situation and every
circumstance.  Father, it is because of
their diligence that we can continue to freely give You praise.

As the psalmist said in Psalm 59:16, I will sing of thy
power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been
my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. (KJV)

When we go to You, Father, we are protected on every
side.  It’s like going into Your strong
tower.  When we are in Your house no one
or nothing can harm us. We know that is true because of what Your word says in
Luke 10:19, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.  By your power we can run through a troop and
leap over walls, because in you, our battle cry is victory! Victory! Victory!

You are our God, and You are our defense!

Amen! So be it!
