“In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one” (Ephesians 6:16).
My faith looks up to Thee, O Savior, who died for me on Calvary. Lead me in this faith to trust no one else but You and those who speak of Your redeeming love. Guide me, Lord, such that I would not be wounded by all the false ideas that are around me. Help me see the light of truth which You have brought into the world. Lead me, Lord, and I will follow where You lead.
Equip me, Lord, to fight the good fight of faith in this world which has little faith. Help me to trust in You above all things and to avoid displacing You from that spot in my life which desires to be number one. Guide me along the right path so that I would see the battle and not fall for the tempters’ constant attacks. Lead me in the way of truth. You are truth; lead me into You!
Lord Jesus, You have fought the fight we cannot fight. You have won the battle we could not win. You have prepared the way so that all who follow You are equipped to move forward. Guide me, O Lord, in order that I would forever hold fast to the truth of Your love and live in the way You have established. Help me now and always to see that You alone can lead me in the way of everlasting life. Amen.
