Men – this prayer is for you. All week I’ve offered up prayers for manhood. This prayer became very personal as God began to place specific circumstances on my heart.
He knows your heart. Stop trying to hide it behind false bravado. I’m there with you, and I know first hand the self-destructive nature of sin in a man’s life.
Guys, Nehemiah calls you to fight for your families and to not fear the enemy. What are your enemies? Who are they? Is it addiction, guilt, fear, regret, loneliness, growing older, lost friendships or marriage.
I’ve worked undercover, SWAT and special operations my entire career. I’ve encountered the most vile beings imaginable, but they weren’t the enemies I feared. It was myself – my sin unconfessed led to the greatest struggle within myself.
Amen for manhood – Be the man God calls you to be.
Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, “Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!”
