Victory in Prayer

paradise-lostI will stay in theme of using prayer as a weapon or shield and recommend another Psalm for you.
This Psalm is one that is special to my family and given to me as a child by my Aunt. It is intended to off you protection from your 'enemies'.

Enemy is word that is alien to most people's vocabulary because it is associated with wars and motion pictures and the like. But in my mind, an enemy is anyone or anything that retards your progress, directly or indirectly.

Remember, your goal is always spiritual growth. Mind you, I am not yet at that point, nor do I fully comprehend the true meaning of spiritual growth. But I am aware that I am incomplete and that spirituality is a large part of what I am missing to be whole.

We'll discuss that in the future...but for now, let's read these words from Psalm 35. It's much more in depth, but for the purpose of protection you need only repeat these words in the morning and at night.

Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me

Take hold of my shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation...

May God bless you.

Thank you for that Steups and stay Blessed.

We all need to stay in prayer and stay protected at all times, the tiniest crevice we leave open and the enemy will seep in.
