Spiritual Warfare: 'God Rescues His Friends from Enemy Traps'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, March 14, 2022

The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.
— Psalm 25:14-15

Today's Prayer

Lord, Abram was Your friend, Moses was Your friend, and Jacob was Your friend. When Jesus came, the disciples were his friends. Even though I have wandered far from You and far from Your ways in the past, I want to be Your friend from now on. I want to draw nearer to You. I want to hear Your voice and know it well. I want to be deaf to the enemy, and be delivered from enemy traps. Please give me a new heart and a fresh desire to push myself away from the table of pleasure, power, and wealth, Lord, and draw near to You with the heart of a servant. Use me as You will and sustain me in my time of need. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
