Father- make me strong –
Teach me spiritual warfare –
Make my spirit supple –
Let it bend – not break –
Show me how to fight
The fight of faith – make
My light shine brightly –
Make the darkness flee
From me – because Your
Word is my delight

1 Timothy 6:12 – The Bible (KJV) – Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Philippians 4:12-13 – The Bible (KJV) – I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
Proverbs 16:32 – The Bible (KJV) – He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
James 4:7 – The Bible (KJV) – Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Psalm 37:3-9 – The Bible (KJV) -Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
