Sovereign God, before you formed us, you warned us that we would face trials of many kinds. Today, we stand as ones who are well-acquainted with the trials and battles of this world. But, praise be to you for giving us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Father, without You we are powerless, but in You we are triumphant! Please hide us under Your wings and strengthen us as we put on your armor to resist the enemy. We put on the belt of truth. May our thoughts and actions be a reflection of Your Word. Please invade the places where we have believed false reports with Your truth. We put on the breastplate of righteousness. Please guard our hearts and help us live righteously in You. Fit our feet with the power of the gospel. Where ever we set our foot may our lives speak of salvation through Your Son and may others be drawn closer to You. We take up the shield of faith as a guard against the fiery arrows of the evil one. Please guard our thoughts with the helmet of salvation. Finally, Lord, we take the Sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word. Help us commit Your Word to memory and be ready to use it when needed. (See Ephesians 6:10-18)
No matter what we face today or in the future, Lord, we give you praise, because ultimately we know the final victory is in Your hands! Thank you for fighting our battles and granting us grace and victory.
In Jesus Name,
