We need you. We need your strength to be aware of our thoughts. We need your discernment to bring Scripture to our mind, to fill our minds with your truth. We need the reminder that anything that contradicts your Word is a lie. And if what we are thinking about doesn’t align with your Word that you speak to us in the Bible, help us to see it for what it is and to stop thinking about it.
Thank you that you left us with the Bible to walk through this world, so that we don’t have to walk around aimlessly. Thank you for leaving us with the Holy Spirit to guide and continually lead us back to your truth. We ask that you would prompt us throughout every day to ask ourselves with every thought that enters our mind if it is from your Word or the world’s word. We want to be servants for you and warriors for you, and there is a battle for our minds, and we ask that you remind us that we serve you – the one who conquered this war years ago by sending your son to die on the cross for us defeating death (Colossians 2:15).
Thank you for giving us the “power and authority to tramples on snakes and scorpions and to overcome the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19), and to overcome the battle for our thought life. We are victors though you.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
