Start your day out right with this prayer

This prayer was compiled from scripture by a friend of mine for himself and his family. I love it!

Father in heaven, I am entering a spiritual battle today against an enemy who is waging war against my soul. 1 Peter 2:11 I must be self controlled and alert, because my enemy the devil is looking to devour me. 1 Peter 5:8 I will resist him today and he will flee from me. James 4:7 I know that I will be tempted to sin against you today. I am so thankful that you will not allow me to be tempted with anything that I cannot overcome. You promised to provide all the strength I need to say no to any and all temptations today. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Jesus I am comforted in knowing that you understand this war I am fighting. You understand what it is like to be tempted. You were tempted in every way that I am, yet you were with out sin. Hebrews 4:15 I am eternally grateful that sin is no longer my master, and I am no longer a slave to sin. Romans 6:6 I have been set free from the power of sin and have become a slave to righteousness. Romans 6:18 By your Spirit and grace I will not allow sin to reign in my life today. Romans 6:11 Your grace teaches me to say no to ungodliness and worldly lusts, and I will live a self controlled, upright, godly life today. Titus 2:11 Lord, I know it is your will for me to be sanctified 1 Thessalonians 4:3 I thank you that your divine power has given me everything I need for life and godliness 2 Peter 1:3. I praise you that you have given me a hunger and a thirst for your righteousness and your kingdom.

I know that discouragements and setbacks may hit me today. Things may not go the way I planned or hoped. I am thankful that no matter what happens, you promised to cause everything to work together for my good, because I love you, and have been called according you your purpose. Romans 8:28


Lord today I need help to wage war on the pride in my life. I know that you oppose the proud but you give your wonderful grace to the humble. James 4:6 Help me to think of the needs of others before my own today. Philippians 2:4 If I don’t get good service, if someone is rude to me, help me to respond with love and kindness. Please remind me to pray for them. Mathew 5:44

A wonderful prayer for the times we are in. I try to be thankful and I am most of the time. I pray for those that grumble, complain and have no faith. I pray for the people that you smile at and they look at you like you don't even exist. What is happening?
