Call To Prayer / 2 Corinthians 10-3-5

Corinthians 1:3-5

3For though we live in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh. 4The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We tear down arguments, and every presumption set up against the knowledge of God; and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.…

Prayer is a conversation with our Creator, our Heavenly Father, and with Jesus. It is also how we fight our battles. We do not fight as the rest of the world fights, we get down on our knees, we go into our closets, and we cry out to Jesus. We bind and loose, we ask God for His Spirit to help us, for His warring angels to fight for us. Ours is not a physical fight, but a spiritual fight. We fight for our loved ones, our family and friends. For our churches, and communities. We fight for our neighbors, and for our nation, and for the people in this world who are lost, persecuted, abused, rejected and hated, and for so many other things. In the world today there are so many only concerned about their rights, they trample on the rights of others, and protest in anger and with violence. This is not how we fight. We pray, we love, we show mercy and kindness. Jesus taught us to love our enemies, and bless those who curse us. Yet I must admit I often fail at doing so. I get angry and I do not show love or patience. I say things I immediately have to repent for because I know my words and thoughts are not pleasing to God. So I hit my knees and cry out to my Heavenly Father, and ask not only for forgiveness, but for His Spirit to fill me with His love so that I can love those who I have judged in anger. To be able to pray for those who do harm to others. See through His eyes and not my own. To pray in the Spirit the things I cannot pray on my own. I pray to be a blessing and not a curse. This is how I am to fight my battles, with love and prayer, not with my fists and anger.

It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You
It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You
It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You

It may look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by You

[Bridge]
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
Let me hide, let me hide
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
Let me hide, let me hide
Let me hide myself in Thee

[Verse]
This is how I fight my battles, mm
This is how I fight my battles
This is how I fight my battles, yeah
This is how I fight my battles

God bless and keep you safe.
