Almighty God, open our eyes to see that the battle is not ours. We see it raging, but remind us that you have already won. Bolster our faith. Forgive us when we doubt. Assure us with your peace. Forgive our unbelief. You are God and there is no other. Jesus wears the victor’s crown to your glory and honor. We shout our praise in the congregation before your throne in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“He said, ‘Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ Then Elisha prayed and said, ‘O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.’ So the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” (2 Kings 6: 16-17 ESV)
