A Warrior's Prayer

ALMIGHTY, OMNIPOTENT, AND LOVING GOD I PRAY THAT YOU
WILL GIVE ME THE COURAGE TO FACE MY ADVERSARIES AND
THE STRENGTH TO FIGHT THE BATTLE WHICH LIES AHEAD.
I ASK YOU TO SUPERINTEND OVER THESE COMING EVENTS AND
BY YOUR GRACE ENABLE ME TO, SOMEHOW, REPRESENT YOU
WELL IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE. I HUMBLY ASK THAT YOU,
ELOHIM, WATCH OVER AND COMFORT MY FAMILY, WHOM YOU
HAVE GIVEN ME, WHILE THIS BATTLE RAGES.

GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC, AND JACOB I ASK THAT YOU ENABLE
ME TO BE VICTORIOUS OVER THESE EVIL FORCES WHICH
OPPOSE ME AND THE THINGS OF GOD AND THAT IN YOUR PLAN
AND PURPOSE I COULD BE AN INSTRUMENT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
AND A MINISTER OF YOUR JUSTICE. IF, IN YOUR PLAN PRECIOUS
FATHER, I AM TO BE CONSUMED IN THE FIGHT, I PRAY THAT
THE SACRIFICE WOULD BE HONORABLE AND WORTHY OF
YOUR NAME. IF I AM TO PREVAIL HOLY FATHER, I PRAY THAT,
SOMEHOW, IT WOULD BRING GLORY AND HONOR TO YOU AND
THAT THE CELEBRATION OF VICTORY WOULD, IN EVERY WAY,
BE PLEASING TO YOU.

AND WHEN YOU, FATHER GOD, HAVE SECURED THE VICTORY
AND I CAN SCABBARD MY SWORD ONCE AGAIN, I PRAY THAT I
WILL REJOICE IN YOU WHO NURTURES AND BLESSES THE
WHOLE EARTH. FOR ALL OF THE EARTH IS YOURS IN ALL OF
IT’S FULLNESS AND ALL WE TO WHOM YOU HAVE GIVEN LIFE.
AND I PRAY AGAIN, THAT IN VICTORY, I WILL BE HUMBLE
BEFORE YOU AND WILL BE THANKFUL FOR THE PEACE WHICH
YOU HAVE BROUGHT BY CHRIST JESUS. I SHALL REJOICE FOR
THE FOOD, THE WATER, AND THE AIR-ALL OF WHICH YOUR
CREATION PROVIDES TO SUSTAIN ME-AND FOR THE LOVE OF
ALL THOSE YOU HAVE PROVIDED FOR ME TO ALSO LOVE.

IN TIME OF PEACE DEAR FATHER I PRAY THAT, IN YOUR
MERCY, YOU WOULD KEEP ME FROM GROWING SOFT AND
COWARDLY AND MY MY SWORD ALWAYS BE HUNG IN A
PROMINENT PLACE AND CAREFULLY KEPT—READY FOR WAR!
