The Battle Prayer

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.

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!

The Battle

Arise, O LORD, the battle calls,
The enemy surrounds my soul,
They’re firing bullets filled with lies,
And each round says there is no hope.

Arise, my Defender, arise,
Hear my cries and encourage me,
For the battle is Yours to win,
Stand and the enemy will flee.

Arise, Wounded Savior, arise,
You have stood to fight for Your own,
And I will rest in the grace supplied,
As You sustain me from Your throne.

Arise, all God’s people, arise,
The enemy will be no more,
The final battle call will sound,
And death will die and lose the war.

Save Me, O My God

A PSALM OF DAVID, WHEN HE FLED FROM ABSALOM HIS SON.

O LORD, how many are my foes! Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul, there is no salvation for him in God. Selah

But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. I cried aloud to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah

I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around. Arise, O LORD!

Save me, O my God! For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
you break the teeth of the wicked. Salvation belongs to the LORD; your blessing be on your people! Selah (Psalm 3 ESV)
