Give Me Courage
Lord, give me courage and strengthen my heart. It's easy for me to ask this, Father, because I truly believe You are with me wherever I go. You are with me when I pass over the waters to the desert. You are with me when I enter the firefight, and I believe You protect me so that no round will hit my soldiers or me, nor will we be burned, wounded, or harmed in anyway.
Lord, my confession is that I won't fear nor be dismayed because I know You are my God and You will strengthen me. Help me and hold me in Your right hand of righteousness. You are my refuge, and I have faith that you will expose our enemy before us so we may obtain victory. I hold firm to the faith that we will live and not die.
Father, thank You for Your courage and confidence to accomplish my mission, for Your Word says I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me. Father, my hope is in You and You alone. And as long as my hope is in you, my heart is strengthened and of good courage.
Lord, I will do my best to wait on You, before making a command decision when at all possible. I will wait on You to renew my strength so that I can run and not grow weary, and so I can walk and not faith.
In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
