Pray that God will come through because ultimately the battle is His.

Dear Jesus, thank you that no matter what happens you will always come through. We love you and are thankful that you always fight our battles. In your name we pray, Amen.
..the Moabites and Ammonites with some of the Meunites came to wage war against Jehoshaphat. Some people came and told Jehoshaphat, [they are] already [close]” ...Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the LORD, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah. The people of Judah came together to seek help from the LORD; indeed, they came from every town in Judah to seek him. 2 Chronicles 20:2-4 NIV
Then Jehoshaphat stood up in the assembly, and said: “LORD…are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you. Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend? They have lived in it and have built in it a sanctuary for your Name, saying, ‘If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us.’ 2 Chronicles 20:5-9 NIV
Jehoshaphat and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the LORD…Early in the morning Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”. Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.” 2 Chronicles 20:18-21 NIV
As they began to sing and praise, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated…they destroy[ed] one another. When the men of Judah came to the place that overlooks the desert they saw only dead bodies lying on the ground; no one had escaped….and they found among them so much plunder that it took three days to collect it. On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Berakah, where they praised the LORD. This is why it is called the Valley of Berakah to this day. 2 Chronicles 20:22-26 NIV
Jesus: “whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:24 ESV
