The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a man of war; the Lord is his name. – Exodus 15:2-3
You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed; you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode. – Exodus 15:13
Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength! We will sing and praise your power. – Psalm 21:13
And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” – Mark 12:28-34
Pray for the estimated 20,000 to 35,000 ISIS members in Syria and Iraq. Pray that God would not leave a single one untouched by his love. Pray that the 1,000 among them that will initially turn to the Lord will be a witness to the rest. Pray that these fighters would find real strength (not in their abilities or power) but in the strength and power of Christ that is above everything. Pray that they would exercise all their strength and power to love God fully.
