Today’s Prayer (12/27/2019)

Oh Lord, watch over us and protect us from the enemy. Don’t allow Satan to get the upper hand in our lives. We would rather walk in Your light, then to find darkness in our lives once again. And this day, we give all our impure thoughts over to You. And if we have slipped up and given our hearts and minds over to such evil thoughts, we are sorry. Please forgive us for falling flat on our faces. It is our desire to follow You and to find victory over the enemy. So fight the fight with us, that we may be shielded, because of our faith in You. May Your words always be in our hearts, that it may lead us to do things that are pleasing in Your sight. And we come to You in prayer because we love You more than anything. The flesh is just an obstacle, sometimes, to going all-in for you. For that reason, take away anything in our lives that You disapprove of. Even the things we give our eyes over to in TV, movies and video games. We are willing to give up watching and playing anything that doesn’t agree with Your standards. And with our music tastes, conform them to Yours, that we may be edified in the music we listen to and the TV we watch. And help us manage our time better. There is a time and a place for family time, but it is better to be serving You. So help us know when to stop what we are doing so that we can pray, read the Bible, or just go out and be used by You in ministry. We love You more than what the enemy and the world can offer. I’ve found joy that lasts, while in your presence. The best part is that I have no guilt when I am with You. Thank You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.

John 10:9-11

John 10:9-11 (KJV)
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
