Arrows of Victory

Elisha said, "Get a bow and some arrows," and he did so. "Take the bow in your hands," he said to the king of Israel. When he had taken it, Elisha put his hands on the king's hands. "Open the east window," he said, and he opened it. "Shoot!" Elisha said, and he shot. "The Lord's arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!" Elisha declared. "You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek." 2 Kings 13:15-17

Lord, Give us an arrow of Victory. Lord, We are coming down to the end of the battle. Give us the provisions to finish the task. You know that this has been a long fought battle and some are running out of arrows. Lord. sustain us and give us what it take to cross the finish line. You are our victory. Only through you we have and will win. Lord, I love you and I thank you for all those who have been faithful. Provide for them a blessing from Your grace and wisdom. Lord, we ask you for guidance, wisdom, and grace to fight for life, freedom and democracy. Lord, I thank you for this country and I pray that those in this country who love you will see that life is precious and worth fighting to preserve.

Lord, give Sarah a quiver full of arrows on this day. Let her aim be true and Lord, bring down the opposition. Protect her from those who wish to harm her. Keep her safe from those who wish to ruin her spirit. Lord, keep her heart tender and help her to forgive those who do evil against her. She is your daughter. You have placed her on the front lines. Please place a shield about her. Let her wait on you for the Victory.

Lord, Give Todd a way to support and protect Sarah. Thank you for his love for her, keep it strong and unwavering. Provide for him the strength he will need in the days to come. Thank you for his positive spirit and Lord thank you for his love for you. Give Todd and Sarah a private moment on this day. Help them to draw strength from you and each other. Bless the kids and keep them soft and unharmed.
I thank you for the victory given by Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus
