The Weapon of Prayer

Sometimes the only weapon we have is prayer;
But with prayer there is great power.
For God is continually with us;
He is dependable for every hour.

He is our forever helper;
To overcome fear and doubt;
To overcome temptation;
To help us work things out.

He goes before us to clear the path;
Then He leads with an army of angels;
Who walk beside us to protect
And help us win our battles.

What we thought was impossible;
All of a sudden becomes possible;
For the Lord goes with us;
His indwelling Spirit is with us.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

    If we stop to think in whose audience we are in during prayer, it is amazing that we even have this privilege.
