Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer for the battle


It feels like every day is a battle. We battle the sin inside of ourselves, we battle the sin and pain in the world around us. We feel both, and we struggle to understand. What is the battle about? Why is it happening? What can we do? Why can't it be fixed?

In your sovereignty, Lord, help us to trust. Help us to trust in your plan, trust in who you are, and trust in all you have promised. Help us to trust that you have given us the opportunity to change the world - to take part in the continued redemption that Jesus brought when he came to save. Help us to trust that however you have called us to change the world, that we can do it in your strength alone.

Help us to remember the battle is yours - we are simply called to be your faithful servants. Help us to be kind towards one another, to show the light of Christ to the world. Help us to honestly look at our own hearts and what must be changed.

We are grateful for your strength, your promises, your faithfulness, and your power. May we find peace that you are fighting our battles.
