It feels like I've been holding up my battle shield a long time, deflecting incessant attacks on our family's health.
We're definitely in a season of intense war. I've always taken this as a sort of back-handed compliment from the devil. We must be doing something right if he's coming after us so hard. But recently the exhaustion I've experienced is enough to make even the strongest warrior retreat.
That's when I sensed God telling me He was giving me my fight back. And people, that's a mighty good thing. Jesus is enabling me to continue standing. He is supernaturally strengthening me.
Since I know I'm not the only one going through it, and I strongly believe in the power of prayer, I'd like to pray for other battle-weary people. Like you.
Because God wants you to get your fight back, too.
You may be fighting physical issues, like our family. You might be facing serious financial trouble, difficult relationships, an addiction, depression, or marriage problems. Whatever the situation, I believe that God wants to supernaturally strengthen and equip you to fight the good fight.
I lift up the person reading this prayer. You know their situation, you know their heart, and you know the level of fatigue wearing them down.
I'm asking You to strengthen them by the power of Your Holy Spirit. God, when the journey was too much for Elijah, you provided supernatural sustenance. Equip Your people with this same divine provision as well, Lord. Apart from you, we are feeble, helpless and tired. But strengthened by Your might, we can do all things.
If they need a job, please order their steps and open the door for a good job. Bring healing to those suffering physically. Heal emotions, hearts and minds. Bring miracles in marriages and relationships. Give wisdom, clarity, direction, strength, freedom, joy, protection and peace to the person reading these words. Surround them with Your presence. Assure them. And most of all, give them back their fight.
In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
