He fights our battles,

may we sing His praise;

all honor to Him,

the Keeper of days.

We take position,

stand firm in our faith;

do not be afraid,

when foes we must face.

Our deliverance,

lies in God alone;

be not discouraged,

the outcome is known.

“You will not have to fight this battle.  Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.  Go out and face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.” – (2 Chronicles 20:17)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that our battles belong to You, and that we are only called to what You ask us to do.  Grant us ears to hear You, and hearts to understand, so that we may stand firm in our faith and forever trust in You.  Forgive us for our fear and discouragement, and please grant us reminders of Your strength and Your presence in the midst of our messes.  Thank You that when we abide in You, we never stand alone.  Grant us courage for every foe we may face.  Please strengthen those in the throes of the fight, and may all know that victory is found in You.  Help us to encourage and strengthen each other in You, so that many may come to know the help that comes from Your mighty hands.  All praise to You, God.  Amen.
