A Prayer for Courage

I do try to maintain my postmillenial morale–but the Lord knows it ain’t easy! Not when you’re covering the news, it ain’t.

O Lord our God, there are wicked persons everywhere trying to tear down everything that’s good, and estrange your people from their God. You don’t need me to tell you who they are and what they’re doing. It makes my head spin, just trying to keep up with it.

Father, we are your people, we belong to Jesus Christ our King. In His name we pray you to give us courage and to fortify our faith. Make us strong and enduring, resourceful, steadfast, and true, so that we might serve you as we should: and go before us, Lord, and tread down your enemies. Amen.
