Lord, I long to spend more time with You. The noise, unrest, and busy-ness around me urges and deepens my desire for quiet time with You.
NOTE: This week begins Lent and the kickoff of our 2019 Lenten Study, Victorious. Our Monday prayers over the next several weeks follow the theme of Victory in Christ, specifically by praying, section-by-section, the “Whole Armor of God Prayer,” written by Charles Stanley.
Good morning Lord. Thank you for assuring me of victory today, if I will but follow Your plan. Today, I prepare myself by putting on the belt of truth. The truth about You Lord is that You are a sovereign God who knows everything about me, both my strengths and my weaknesses. Lord, You know my breaking point and have promised not to allow me to be tempted beyond what I am able to bear.
The truth about me Lord, is that I am new creature in Christ and have been set free from the power of sin. I am indwelt with the Holy Spirit who will guide me and warm me when danger is near. I am Your child and nothing can separate me from Your Love. The truth is that You have a purpose for me this day – someone to encourage, someone to share with, someone to love.
Lord, I go now rejoicing that You have chosen me to represent You to this lost and dying world. May others see Jesus in me, may Satan and his hosts shudder as Your power is made manifest in me. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN!
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth… – Ephesians 6:14
