Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Ephesians 6:10-12 (NKJV)

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.


Almighty God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, You have won. The ultimate victory has been secured. You have taken back what belongs to You from the ancient Serpent, the Devil, who usurped Your creation from mankind in the beginning of time. Praise be to You. Hallelujah to the Almighty One, to the Lamb that was slain and to the Holy Spirit. Victory is Yours. Amen!

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).


Romans 8:18, 28, 31-39 (NKJV)


For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.


And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.


... If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:


“For Your sake we are killed all day long;

We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”


Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Song of Response

Worship Through Prayer

  1. Father, the Enemy of my soul is raging mad trying to destroy what belongs to You. I find myself cowering in fear for I know I will be attacked and hurt because I am Your child. Give me the faith to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. May I never turn away from or against You when attacked and tempted by the Enemy. 

  2. Remind me that my fighting position is always to be where You are. Let me abide in You always. Help me fix my eyes on the Lord Jesus. Let Your Word be secure in my heart. May faith and truth protect my mind in Christ. No matter how intense the trials and temptations that come to me, let me lift the banner that declares, "The Lord Jesus is my God and King."

  3. Father, I know that all things will surely work out together for good because of You. Give me the faith and strength to continue to believe in this truth even when things do not make sense and are terrifying. Let me plod through the pain and troubles in the holiness and righteousness of Christ until I see Your power move in and through my life. Let me be faithful in prayer until Your holy will be done.
