Father thank You for this day. Another day of molding, lessons, and service. Another day with family and friends. Another day to meet and embrace strangers. Another day of blessings given and received. Another day to praise You. Thank You.
Thank You for the added strength to persevere, survive, thrive, and push past the enemy’s attacks.
Father, You know where I’m weak and weakest. Fill those spaces, reinforce those areas, and show me what to do and how to get it done. Protect me from harm caused by others and that which is self-inflicted.
I pray for my family members, friends, associates, and other brothers and sisters in Christ that I do not know. I pray for believers, conditional believers, and non-believers. Touch our hearts Father, that we all may find and embrace the peace within. Focus our eyes so that we can see the illuminated path You masterfully laid for us. Help us fight temptation and the trappings of the world. Help us to hear Your voice distinctly, so that we can tune out the enemy’s noise.
I humbly and faithfully pray for these things and these people in Jesus’ name, knowing that only goodness and greatness can come from You. I love You Father. Amen.
Either you trust God or you don’t. There’s no riding the fence. He doesn’t half-commit to us. He doesn’t half-deliver His blessings. He doesn’t sorta love us. He gives us 100% each and every millisecond of every single day.
Trust. Listen for His voice. Look for His work. Blot out the enemy.
Every time you hear and think something negative, just say “Erase. Erase. Erase.” or “That’s a lie”, or any other word or phrase that you need to say to blot out the enemy’s attempt to distract and discourage you. Trust God!
