She's down on her knees, with head bowed in prayer;
She looks weak and helpless, as she's kneeling there.
But the truth of the matter about this humble scene
Is that she's battling forces that our eyes can't see.
And her power is greater than earth's strongest man;
Against the army of Satan she courageously stands.
She's casting down strongholds and tearing down walls;
She's releasing the captives as she prays for them all.
She's waging spiritual war, with God in command;
She finds strength for the conflict in the blood of the Lamb.
So the next time you see her with head bowed in prayer,
Remember, there's a battle going on there.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal
but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.
(II Corinthians 10:4)
