A Daily Prayer

“Lord, teach us to pray.” Luke 11:1

I love to read prayers that have been written by Pastors and ministry leaders. They have been a powerful teaching tool to build into my prayer life.

Here is one I read last week:

Heavenly Father,

I recognize that my primary struggle today will not be against flesh and blood. I know there is more to this life than meets the eye.

Give me strength to stand my ground against this world. Enable me to recognize its twisted values and perspectives.

Today, I choose to stand firm with the belt of truth buckled around my waist. Bring to mind what is true when confronted with the lies that permeate this world. As I open Your Word, renew my mind to what is true.

I put on the helmet of righteousness. Thank you for giving me a righteous standing with You. Give me wisdom to know what’s right and the courage to do what’s right.

I put on the shoes of readiness. Lead me to those who have not accepted your offer of salvation. Give me the boldness and sensitivity as I represent You to others.

I take up the shield of faith, which has the power to help me stand against temptation, rejection, doubt, and fear. On the cross, Christ overcame the power of sin on my behalf, and His resurrection took away the basis for all my doubt and fear.

I put on the helmet of salvation. My salvation is a reminder of all You have done and will do in me. It is a reminder of who I am, and to Whom I belong.

Lastly, I take up the sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word. Through Your Word, bring my ways in line with Your ways and my thoughts in line with Your thoughts.

In the beautiful name of Jesus,

Think About This: “The first thing we must do when we have a problem is to pray. Second, we must manage the emotions and pray. Third, we must make a plan on how to overcome and then pray. Fourth, we must take action, trust God, and pray some more.” – Tony Warrick

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: 23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose [g]stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:23-24
