My attention was directed this morning to Psalm 144:1-2. David praises God for being his strength, teaching his hands to war, and giving him fingers to fight.

Men, TODAY WE MUST PRAY! We must pray that the church will receive a mindset for spiritual warfare. A real battle is raging in our country to turn this nation into a humanistic, godless society.

King David knew that he was called to the kingdom to fight for his nation in his day. Do we know this calling is upon us also? In Psalm 144:5-6 David prays, "Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them." He calls for volcanic eruptions and arrows of lightning to scatter and destroy the ideologies and false teachers that were influencing the nation away from God.

As New Testament believers, we cannot take up physical swords against our enemies, but we can pray that God will deal with our enemies and turn the listeners against them.

Psalm 144:11-15 gives us the valid reason for this spiritual warfare--that our sons will be mature in their character and spirituality in their youth, and our daughters polished like palace gem stones (v. 12).

Psalm 144: 13-15 is the final reason for spiritual warfare--that our economy may be blessed.

Men, we must pray today and always, individually, and as a family, for our nation.

Be encouraged to pray, Colin
