6.13.17 Prayer Prompt: Hand the Sword to God


PRAYER PROMPT ••• The battles we fight don’t always come with bloodshed and war. 

We fight emotional battles. 

Personal challenges. 

Arguments with family and friends. 

Battles rage in us and around us and sometimes, we get too tired to fight. 

The thing is, God doesn’t want us to fight! 

1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 

And even Jesus instructed, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30) 

When we take our individual battles to God, He gives us the strength and wisdom to get through — provided, of course, that we don’t keep trying to grab the sword from His hand! 

When we give our battles to God to fight, we have to trust Him to fight them.

We have to let Him work in our life and let Him give us the strength and wisdom to do what we are to do. 

As you pray today, whatever battle you are facing, surrender your sword and let God fight the battle. 

Ask Him to give you rest and let Him take the lead.
NOTE: Feel free to comment, but these prayer prompts are meant to be between you and God. Matthew 6:6 — But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
