40 Days of Prayer - Day 31

Department of Defense

Proverbs 20:18

Plans are established by counsel; By wise counsel wage war.

Founding Father Quote:
“Forasmuch as it is the indispensable Duty of all Men to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with Gratitude their Obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther Blessings as they stand in Need of; And it having pleased him in his abundant Mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable Bounties of his common Providence, but also to smile upon us in the Prosecution of a just and necessary War, for the Defense and Establishment of our unalienable Rights and Liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a Measure to prosper the Means used for the Support of our Troops and to crown our Arms with most signal success.”
-Continental Congress, November 1, 1777

Dear God, war has become a necessary evil for our country today.  We have seen Americans lose their lives on our home soil, a horrific tragedy played out in 9/11.  Our false sense of security was shattered because we foolishly believed that we would never be harmed in our own country.  We have lost dedicated men and women in foreign lands fighting wars we didn’t start, wars that have no definitive winner.  Lord, we pray that Your divine protection surround our soldiers that put their lives on the line every day to protect our freedom.  Send Your angels out before them and stand as their rear guard.  May these soldiers be richly blessed for their great sacrifice, and may You grant them supernatural wisdom and courage.  The victory alone is Yours.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Ephesians 6:12
