Fighting The Good Fight

I've been watching YouTube videos of our military on patrol in Afghanistan.
The insurgents are relentless in their attacks. Their tactics are such to cause chaos. Their goal, to target the emotion (fear) through attempting to inflict doubt.
I've watched and learned how ground troops communicate with the A10 pilots to coordinate counter attacks. Often after taking a significant amount of time surveying, taking account the enemies movements, learning how the insurgents move, what weapons they have, all while being fired upon. Not immediately fighting back due to the understanding of giving up position.
My mind sees myself as a soldier for the Kingdom who's enemy is relentless in his attacks, a desire is to cause chaos in my life in which will bring my gaurd down making me vulnerable.
I pray for strength. Prayer reminds me I'm not alone. Prayer is speaking to my commander, obtaining "air support" and communicating with the other troops on the ground, you.
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7 NASB
