As we face each day not knowing what is ahead of us, we know that the Lord is present. The best weapon that we can carry within us is prayer. There will always be wickedness in the world and we cannot allow it to consume our minds and hearts. Be strong and courageous.
Start your day off with a prayer. Make it a point to thank the Lord for answered prayers and for the prayer you are sharing presently. Be precise and ask all that your heart desires and what your heart, mind, and soul is burdened with. Remember, you are not carrying this burden the Lord is. But, you have to release it to him completely and remain in full faith that He hears you and will take care of you.
Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation. Preserve my life from the secret plots of the wicked. From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity, who sharpen their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows bitter words, that they shoot at him and do not fear.
They encourage themselves in an evil matter. They talk of laying snares secretly. They say, “Who will see them?” They devise iniquities. “We have perfected a shrewd scheme.” Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep.
But God shall shoot at them with an arrow. Suddenly they shall be wounded. So He will make them stumble over their own tongue. All who see them shall flee away. All men shall fear, shall declare the work of God. For they shall wisely consider His doing. The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and trust in Him. And all the upright in heart shall glory.
For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory. The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:7-
