â€œAnd there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.â€ (Isaiah 64:7)
The prince of darkness and legion
go forth in this world to win
the invaluable prize of the conflict
the immortal souls of men.
Heaven aligns its forces.
The battle lines are drawn.
Eternities hang in the balance.
In fury, the war rages on.
Humanities blind to the conflict,
though they the victorâ€™s spoil;
insensitive to the battle,
due to lives of earthly toil.
Where are Godâ€™s gallant warriors,
who wax valiant in the fight,
who turn back the torrents of darkness
clad in the armor of light?
O Lord chasten your children,
in haste wield the rod,
force to their knees your people
that they might rise and take hold of God.
Then Godâ€™s mighty princes
who are destined to prevail
will scale the citadels of evil
and snatch men from the clutches of hell.
Pray that God will stir us up to take hold of Him for our land.
