Positioned for battle – knees on the floor, Bible open, Journal and pen ready to take notes. The enemy has touch my family and I am officially in Mama Warrior Mode!

Praying the Blood of Jesus over all of us, our friends, extended family, our finances, our property.

Then calling out the names of God. Your are my comforter, my provider, you cover me with your love, you put you angles in charge, you are the Lord of Host, Healer, The One for whom nothing is impossible!

Then I begin to recall the times in my life where I have seen God move. When there was no money for gas for the car, we made it. When in the garden, I was covered with ants, there were no bites. When I thought I could go no further, you gave me your strength. I recall everything I can think of from childhood to present that He was with me.

Now I begin to pray and intercede for my family. I don’t pray the problem, though I want to desperately! I follow Him in prayer. I open the Word and repeat back to Him the promises that He has given to me in His Word.

I Pray the Promise – Not the Problem.

Ending with worship and thanksgiving to the Lord who know all things even before I speak.

Yes, I am officially in Mama Warrior Mode. And I press forward with confidence knowing that Christ has gone before me, because of His love for me, to clear the path, to make my way straight, to remove bolder and gates of iron, to knock down doors of brass!

He is my Bridegroom and He will always go first, he will always go ahead of me. He is the Alpha and Omega, he is in the beginning and the end of every problem I face. He gets the first word and the last word on the subject! There is nothing too difficult for Him. There is no detail or wisdom that escapes His notice.

I am officially in Mama Warrior Mode, following the one who goes before me, whose hair is white and eyes are fire and on whose thigh is written, “King of kings and Lord of lords”

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:11-16
