The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
“Declaring your Battle Position in Prayer”
Unknown, and yet well -. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier represents soldiers who have died fighting for America. Their remains were never identified. Unknown, and yet well-known. Since 1935 for 365 days a year and 24 hours a day, a soldier walks and guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Each guard takes 5 to 8 hours to prepare their uniform for this duty.
Brett Hyde, a tomb sentinel of the 3rd U.S. infantry regiment kept guard over the tomb during Hurricane Sandy. He refused to leave his post. Even with inclement weather, there has never been a time one soldier disrupted the chain for guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier since 1935!
Paul said unknown, yet well-known in II Corinthians 6:9. Will you declare your battle position today like the soldier at the tomb during Hurricane Sandy?
that no matter what storm you face, you will declare Jesus reigns in all of your battles.
that you will maintain your position of intercession and faith with the resistance of the enemy in your trials.
that you will man your post against evil for your home and family.
that you, like Brett Hyde, will be vigilant in your warfare worship against the enemy of compromise and apathy.
that you make up your mind that in the middle of a spiritual hurricane you choose to honor Jesus Christ as the one who will see you through victory.
that though the storm is raging in your finances and with souls, that you will not leave your post until Jesus relieves you.
that when the enemy comes in like a flood the Lord shall raise up a standard against him.
that you will release the warfare of your worship in the middle of this perfect storm that you are facing.
that you defend the honor and the glory of Jesus the unknown, but yet a well-known soldier at Calvary for our sins.
that with dignity and honor, you will fight the good fight of faith. Intercede that you will be faithful to the things of God, and to the kingdom business of heaven. No matter how the storm rages, determine that you will not leave your post for Jesus Christ.
