The Battle Prayer

image

The battle prayer goes out to war,
It sweats and fights to find the Lord,
But He already knows.
For He ordained our enemies,
To drop our hearts upon their knees,
So prep your battle clothes.

The battle prayer goes out for men,
To see the Christ and hope in Him,
And leave their sinful ways.
For many trust in strength of self,
In strongholds our hearts long have held,
Where idols gather praise.

The battle prayer goes out in faith,
When humbled warriors seek His face,
And bring their grief and fears.
For He does not leave nor forsake,
He strengthens us when terrors rage,
Emmanuel is near!

The battle prayer goes out for peace,
And pleas for help will never cease,
Until the war is won.
For in His name our hearts cry out,
Reveal Your glory and renown,
O Jesus, will You come?

The battle prayer goes out to war,
It sweats and fights to find the Lord,
And He’s found, Peace is found,
Yes, Christ is found – in victory.

Behind the lines

Psalm 20 is a song and prayer to prepare for war and it applies to our battle of faith. It anticipates victory in the Davidic King, the Son of David, who reigns forever, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. He is our Victory. He is our Hope. Come, Lord Jesus!
