Heavenly Father, you are the God who sits on the throne from eternity to eternity. You are the author of holiness and righteousness. You are the executor of the new covenant. You stand in the shadows to see your word performed. It’s dark here on earth, Father. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Since the fall of Adam and Eve, Satan prowls and seeks to kill and steal righteousness and holiness. The war zone is real, as a physical and a spiritual battle. The struggle continues for those who seek to live in righteousness and become more like Jesus. Father, you promise to go out for the salvation of your people. We stand on your promise. Stay the course for those who work for your kingdom, Lord. Give them discernment in the fight, prayer day and night, and wisdom to fight for what is right. Keep them covered in your protection. Let them soar like eagles and not grow weary. Give them rest between your powerful shoulders to rise and struggle on. Keep the light of your glorious hope ever before them. Increase their territory for your honor and glory. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“You marched through the earth in fury;
you threshed the nations in anger.
You went out for the salvation of your people,
for the salvation of your anointed.
You crushed the head of the house of the wicked,” (Habakkuk 3: 12-13 ESV)
