Shattering Rocks in Prayer

I downloaded a new app for my Asus Eee Pad Tablet and I’m having so much fun with it.   I chose a Bible Study program in the New American Standard version.  Several in our family currently face hard times and I found some significant scripture verses that not only bring into play but lend power to my intercession for them.

Do you need strength and want to declare victory over your life today?  Then these are for you too!

For by you I have run through a troop;
and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
Psalm 18:29

May they praise God while they hold a two-edged sword in their hand,
in order to take revenge on the nations, and punish foreigners.
They bind their kings in chains, and their nobles in iron shackles,
and execute the judgment to which their enemies have been sentenced.
All his loyal followers will be vindicated.    Praise the Lord!  Psalm 149: 6-9

"Behold, I have made you a new, sharp threshing sledge with double edges;
 You will thresh the mountains and pulverize them,
 And will make the hills like chaff.  Isa 41:15

For the Lord GOD helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced;
Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed. 
Isa 50:7

And here’s my favorite:

"Is not My word like fire?" declares the LORD, "and like a hammer which shatters a rock?  Jer 23:29

  1. Beautifully written, Mary. Thank you so much for the verses you shared! I love how we can easily identify our own personal battles as "the wicked", etc. The Holy Spirit makes those verses come alive as comfort and strength for us as we read God's precious Word.

  2. I like those Bible verses. Thanks for sharing them. Sometimes Bible verses taste "sweet like honey". Those do.

  3. I can always use Scriptures to help and encourage through difficult times.

    Blessings and love,

  4. Powerful!
    Almighty, all powerful, never changing, the same yesterday, today and forever!
    May He strengthen each one of your family Mary in these days and fill them to overflowing with faith, hope and love.
    I love the new look to your blog...beautiful! Keep smiling sweet friend!
    You shine!

    All my heart,
    Deborah xoxoxo

  5. The verses are just what I needed today.

  6. I love that you are sharing Scripture with those in your family in need of "truth" in their lives....These are beautiful truths that you left with us today....

    It's wonderful that we can have the Scriptures at our finger tips with Bible apps suited for all our gadgets.....

  7. Inspiring words, at just the right time for me to hear them.

    Thank you, Mary.
