ARMOR OF GOD

Ephesians 6:13-17

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

I pray that you will put on the full armor of God so that when temptation and trials come, you will be able to stand your ground. I pray that you will stand firm with the belt of truth buckled around your waist; with the breastplate of righteousness in place; and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. May you take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I pray that you will take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. With the full armor of God, may you advance His kingdom wherever you go.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Morning Prayer

CALL OUT TO GOD

Psalms 77:1-4; 78:35

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

In times of trial, I pray that you will cry out to God to help you. I pray that you will not rely on your own strength, but humble yourself and turn to Him, for He understands your distress and your sorrow. I pray that you will let Him comfort your soul and strengthen your spirit, for He sees the tears you shed when no one is looking. In times when you are too troubled to speak, I pray that you will just call on God and He will embrace you with peace and comfort. May you always remember that God is your Rock; the Most High is your Redeemer.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Evening Prayer

Even when an army is deployed against me, I do not fear. Even when war is imminent, I remain confident.

Ps 27:3 NET


Soul, rule thyself; on passion, deed, desire,
Lay thou the laws of thy deliberate will.
Stand at thy chosen post, Faith’s sentinel:
Though Hell’s lost legions ring thee round with fire,
Learn to endure.

— Arthur Symonds


The confidence in another man’s virtue is no slight evidence of a man’s own, and God willingly favors such a confidence.

— Montaigne


Prayer

My Father,

May I ever be kept in remembrance of my virtue, and may I be sensitive to its strength. As I go on my way, keep me within control of the impetuous desires of my nature, and in call of the duties and obligations of my daily life.

Amen.

 

Morning Prayer

RAISING UP YOUR CHILDREN

Proverbs 19:18; 29:17


I pray that God will give you wisdom to raise your children properly. May you understand the importance of discipline and the necessity of applying it consistently. May you never be a willing party to your children's ruin by withholding discipline. I pray that you will not exasperate your children, but instead build a loving relationship with them. May you spend quality time with them and assure them of your love daily. May your children's lives be blessed as you raise them up according to God's Word.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

 

Evening Prayer

In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.

Matt 5:16 NET


Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time—

Footprints that perhaps another,
Sailing o’er life’s wintry main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

— Henry W. Longfellow


They are slaves who fear to speak
For the fallen and the weak;
They are slaves who will not choose
Hatred, scoffing, and abuse,
Rather than in silence shrink
From the truth they needs must think;
They are slaves who dare not be
In the right with two or three.

— James Russell Lowell


Prayer

Merciful Father,

Help me to know that my shadow cannot fall without me, and that my footprints cannot be found where I have never trodden. I pray that thou wilt make me so familiar with the right path that it may be mine to have the privilege of leading others to the right places.

Amen.

 

Afternoon Prayer

“Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world.”

1 John 4:4

 

Father God,

 

Today, the car may not start, the pipe may burst, the boss may do me wrong, but let me not forget that Your Spirit lives in me, and that I am called in these moments of trial to stand out in the crowd.

 

Amen

Morning Prayer

BLESSED AS YOU TRUST

Jeremiah 17:7-8


I pray that you shall trust in the Lord at all times, putting your confidence in Him so that you will be blessed. May you be like a tree planted by a stream, that sends its roots out to the water, that does not wither when the heat comes. Just like that tree, may you likewise bloom and prosper where God has planted you. May people realize through you, that a life which trusts in God is abundantly blessed. May you not be overcome by worry during difficult times, but instead bear good fruit no matter what your circumstances are. I pray that God will bless you as you trust in Him.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.
