“Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.” 1 Peter 5:7-9 NLT
Lord, I know according to Your Word, we have an enemy who wants to rob, kill and destroy our faith and trust in You.
I thank You that what You want to do in our lives is more powerful than what the enemy seeks to do.
Thank You that You are greater than anything or anyone who would come against us.
Father, may Your truth always keep me and my children from Satan’s lies;
may Your light always keep us from his darkness;
may Your wisdom always keep us from his confusion;
may Your peace always keep us from his restlessness;
may Your pathway always keep us from his dead-end road.
Give each one of Your children the grace to cast all our worries and cares upon You, and to not be weighed down with concerns that You never intended for us to carry.
Help us, by Your grace, to stand firm against every scheme of the devil, to be strong and daily growing in our faith and confidence in You, and help us to pray for others with a sincere heart of understanding and love.
