When we read the book of psalms, we can easily associate with the psalmists in every aspect of their sorrows. The book of psalms is the psalmists open heart to God; in sincerity of their cries, they confine all their troubles in the form of prayers, reaching out to the One Who can comfort and provide the balm for their hurts. David, the writer of seventy-three psalms, was a warrior; a hero, a courageous man, when confronting his enemies. His life was completed with battles. He fought even a bear and a lion to protect his sheep, and killed both of them. With five small stones and a sling, he killed a mighty giant, who came to fight with Israel. He was just a young lad at that time, but that did not stop him from going forwardly to confront the giant armored for war, while the nation of Israel panicked at his intimidation. But David, however, not once fainted at the looks of that Palestinian giant. Victory was certain in his mind, for his faith, the anointing of the Lord, and his zeal for God lead him to success. He wrote Psalm nine after victory over Goliath. In verses 3-5 he says, When my enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished before You, for You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging righteously, You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted out their names forever and ever; sing praises to Zion to the Lord, who dwells in Zion! Declare among the peoples His doings! Vs. eleven. He proclaimed and celebrated his victory by giving God the glory. In Psalm 144:1-2 he says, Blessed be the Lord, my Rock and my keen and firm Strength, Who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight; My Steadfast Love and my Fortress, my High Tower and my Deliverer, my Shield and He in Whom I trust and take refuge, Who subdues my people under me. King David’s heart was always filled with praises to the Lord, acknowledging His faithfulness, mercy and loving-kindness. He fought the Ammonites, the Philistines and Syrians and was victorious. He wrote Psalms 20 and 21 celebrating his victories saying, Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand. Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God; they are bowed down and fallen, but we are risen and stand upright. O Lord, give victory; let the King answer when we call (Ps. 20:6-9); The king shall joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! He asked life of You, and You gave it to him-long life forever and ever more; for the king trusts in the Lord, and through the mercy and steadfast love of the Most High he will never be moved. Be exalted, Lord, in Your strength; we will sing and praise Your power (Ps. 21:1,4,7,13). David, the anointed of the Lord, was a powerful warrior; but he gave God the credit and praised Him for all his victories.
Arise My Bride to Pray, to Battle, and to See My Face
I will put on God’s whole armor, that I may be able successfully to stand up against the strategies and the deceits of the devil,
FOR I AM NOT WRESTLING WITH FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST THE DESPOTISMS, AGAINST THE POWERS, AGAINST THE WORLD RULERS OF THIS PRESENT DARKNESS, AGAINST THE SPIRIT FORCES OF WICKEDNESS IN THE HEAVENLY SPHERE.
I DECLARE THAT
I will resist and stand my ground on these evil days, with God’s full armor on, I will stand with my belt of truth around my loins and the breastplate of integrity; I will stand in readiness to face the enemy with my feet shod; I will lift up the shield of saving faith, quenching all the flaming missiles of the wicked one, with faith that overcomes the world and its power; I will stand with my mind, my thoughts protected with the helmet of salvation, and no one can take it away from me; I will stand with the sword of the Spirit- the Word of God, which is alive and full of power, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life and spirit, and of joints and marrow- the deepest parts of nature, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart; praying on every occasion, in every season in the Spirit with all manner of prayer and entreaty; to that end I will keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding on behalf of all the saints- my brothers and sisters in Christ, for my prayers avail much in the sight of God; it is my divine and powerful weapon to demolish strongholds.
I DECLARE THAT
God is my war club, my weapon for battle; with Him I will shatter nations, and destroy kingdoms; I have been given authority to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt me; I am the bride of Christ- His church built on the Rock that is YAHSHUA and the gates of hell shall not prevail against me. Therefore, I say, No weapon that is formed against me will prosper; and every tongue that accuses me in judgement, God will condemn; this is my heritage and vindication from the Lord; The Lord my God is the One Who fights for me, I will not fear the enemy; I will not fear, but will stand firm and confident to see the salvation of the Lord. I will lift my rod of confidence in the Lord and He will drown the plans of the enemy against my family, my president, and my country. I will wait for the Lord and He will renew my strength; I shall mount up with wings like eagles; I shall run and not be weary, I shall walk and not faint; If God is for me, who [can be] against me? Because I have made the Lord my refuge and the Most High my dwelling place, there shall be no evil befall me, nor any plague or calamity come near my tent, for God will give His angels charge over me to accompany and defend and preserve me in all my ways, they shall bear me up on their hands lest I dash my foot against a stone; I shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and serpent shall I trample underfoot. You, O God will push down our enemies and in your Name we shall tread them under who rise up against us.
O Lord, we and our nation have sinned and dealt perversely and done wickedly and have rebelled turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances. O Lord, to us and our nation belong confusion and shame of face, because we have rebelled against You. O Lord, according to all Your righteousness and justice, I beseech You, let Your anger and Your wrath be turned away from us, Your people; listen to and heed the prayer of Your servants and their supplications and for Your sake cause Your face to shine upon us; O my God, incline Your ear and hear, for we do not present our supplications before You, for our own righteousness and justice, but for Your great mercy and loving-kindness; O Lord hear! O Lord forgive! O Lord give heed and act! Do not delay, for Your own sake, O my God, because Your people are called by Your name. (Prayer of Daniel)
You are my King, O God; command victories and deliverance for Israel (America). Rise up, O Lord! Let your enemies be scattered. And let those who hate you flee before You. Oh, that You would rend the heavens and that You would come down, that the mountains might quake and flow down at Your presence! Will You restrain Yourself, O Lord? Will You keep silent and not command our deliverance but humble and afflict us exceedingly? Rise up O Lord! Let not man prevail; put your enemies in fear, that they may know that they are just men. Have mercy upon us and be gracious to us, O Lord; do not stand off, O Lord do not hide in times of trouble, for we are Your people. You are our King forever; spare your people from the hands of wicked people. Shine forth O King of all nations! Let Your glory flow on us, Your people. It is time O Lord, it is time to vindicate Your name, Your reputation, Your acts of righteousness. You command, and it will happen. Rend to our enemies a recompense, O Lord, according to the work of their hands; pursue them in anger and destroy them from under Your heavens. May Your kingdom come and Your will be done on the earth, and in this nation, as it is done in heaven! Show us Your favor O Lord, and bless us with Your victory to the glory and honor of You, Father.
VICTORY AND PRAISES
I stand with my feet shod in the presence of my enemies, my head anointed with Oil, singing praises to my King, YAHSHUA my Messiah! Who is like You, O Lord? Who is like You? Amazing in all creation, eternity covers You outside of the frame of time. It is good and delightful thing to give thanks to You, O Lord, to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to show forth Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night; You have changed my weeping for Your joy! My morning has arrived. My sorrow You have turned into dancing; You have clothed me with joy of victory, and my soul sings praises to You my God; I will give thanks to you forever! You calmed the storm to a calm and to a gentle whisper, so that the waves of the sea are still; You saved my life from the schemes of the enemy; I sing a song of victory in Your presence, O Lord, for You have triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider you have thrown into the (Red) sea! Bless the Lord O my soul, bless His holy name; bless the Lord O my soul and forget none of all His benefits; bless the Lord O my soul!
MAY OUR LORD BE EXALTED FOREVER MORE! IN YAHSHUA’S NAME. AMEN!
