Whenever David prayed for help in overcoming his enemies he was concerned with people trying to kill him or armies fighting for his kingdom. With God's assistance, David never backed down from a fight. This is the guy God called "a man after my own heart."
We can still call on God for help in overcoming our enemies, whoever and whatever they may be. Enemies and temptations come in various forms. I noticed this year that several friends gave up Facebook for Lent. Others have told me, both men and women, that they have become addicted to pornography on the internet. Temptations abound.
But where temptations abound, grace can abound all the more. David never had to fight the internet, but he gave us an example in going out to face the enemy, calling on God at all times, and listening when God spoke. Following this model, we too can be people after God's own heart. We can be victorious; we can conquer our enemies and hold our ground.
Psalm 60:11-12 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man in worthless. With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
