Lord, let my heart be directed in the ways that You have laid before me. May my
strength grow as I take each step toward doing Your will. Chase away fear and doubt
that may try to plaque me, and keep mine eyes fixed on You.
As I accomplish each task set before me, may Your blessings pour out, not only to me and
my household but to those whom I have touched in Your name.
Let each life bathe in Your beauty, grace and grow in wisdom, strength and uprightness.
Let all those whom have been touched by You, stand tall and fixed on doing Your will.
Cause them to hate evil and love to do Your just will in righteousness, being careful not to
destroy those that are held captive against their will. For it is not flesh and blood that we
battle, but evil principalities, powers of the darkness.
Show us how to free the captives and destroy the powers of the evil one, that he
may not retaliate against them or us. Station your mighty warring angels round about us in
Make our hearts strong in Your Word, give our spirits the discerning knowledge so as not to
be fooled by an imposter
Enlighten us to the extent that it is only You whom we seek and You that we see. In
the faces of those hurting around us, give us compassion to mend their weary body
and soul. Send Your Holy Spirit to feed their spirits and bring life back to their bodies.
Let us not grow weary by the news headlines that we see and hear, but let us stand up
and rejoice for Your time is near.
Gather us together in spirit, that no matter where we are on this earth, we feel the strength
flowing from other Christians to minister to us and stand beside us in our final battle against
evil. Make our spirits as one.
Praise God, when that final trumpet blows and Jesus comes in all his glory and power! Let
His Majesty reign over all the earth! In humbleness we bow, in victory we cry out, for our
Savior has returned, in all His Greatness to rule for ever and ever.
Peace and love flow through our land once again. Amen.
