October 23, 2023

After spending eleven months and twenty days at the foot of Mt. Sinai, the cloud lifted from the tabernacle of testimony. The priest blew the silver trumpets God had told Moses to make to inform the Israelites it was time to set out. When the Levites moved the ark, Moses prayed: 

And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. Numbers 10:35

Commit this prayer to memory and pray it every morning. We are the temple of the Holy Spirit of God, and when we move about daily, these words should go before us. David used similar words when he went into battle.

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. Psalms 68:1

We are amid warfare! After putting on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18), pray these words. When you are back home and resting, pray again. Here are the words Moses prayed after their three-day journey into the wilderness:

And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel. Numbers 10:36

You can adjust the words to fit your situation as David did in the other verse, but it wouldn’t hurt for us to pray for the many millions of Christians worldwide. My version would be, “Return, O LORD, unto the many millions of Christians as they lay their heads in the safety of your arms.”
