A Prayer To The Captain Of The Hosts

Father, by sending the captain of the angelic host to visit Joshua You reinforced his role as the new Israelite leader. He obediently led the Israelites across the Jordan and was now entering enemy territory. There were many new experiences and territorial challenges that might overwhelm Joshua and the Israelites had they not been reminded that You, as Captain, were present and in charge of their future plans. We also need to be reminded that You are with us, watching over us, protecting us, and guiding us in all that we undertake. So, as we submit to Jesus, our Captain of Salvation, we must look to Your Word, lean on Your promises, and walk in accordance to that which You have commanded us. Keep us faithful in doing so. Amen.
