Lord Christ, In your name, I pray for myself and for ______________________ this day. By the transforming work of your Spirit, may we each be a brave warrior, ready for battle and able to handle the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit. May our faces be the faces of lions. In spiritual battle, I pray that the least of us will be a match for a hundred, and the greatest for a thousand. May you help us and grant us success in each thing you set before us. Gather others around us to help us, and grant them success. I pray that day after day men will come to you to help you extend your kingdom, that you may have a great army, an army like the army of God. May we help you, Lord Christ, with undivided loyalty and extend that same loyalty to the leaders you raise up over us. Like the men of Issachar, may we understand the times and know what we should do. Teach us to use the weapons of our warfare, which are mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds, and make us experienced soldiers prepared for battle. May we be fully determined to make you king over all our land. Amen.
