God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, September 19, 2022

Thank the Lord, my rock, who trained my hands to fight and my fingers to do battle, my merciful one, my fortress, my stronghold, and my savior, my shield, the one in whom I take refuge, and the one who brings people under my authority.
— Psalm 144:1-2 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, You created me, giving me my talents, abilities, and skills. You formed me and made me capable. Help me to use my life and my abilities to serve You and please You. You are my savior, the shield I need against my enemies, my place of refuge, and my stronghold of safety and mercy. Thank You. Lead me to become what You want me to be, what uses my talents to the fullest, and what brings You the most glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
