“With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18)
Jesus taught us to pray without ceasing. Pray in the spirit and know that the Holy Spirit walks with You. Do not lean on your own understanding, but upon the Word which has been spoken to you and dwells within you. Be guided every day by the simple truth that you are battling against the wiles of the wicked one. Know that he has already been overcome by your Savior, Jesus Christ.
Lord, I hear these things and know them, but I do not practice them as I ought. Grant that I would become a person who continuously prays and leans upon You for all understanding. Guide me ever deeper into the faith through Your Spirit. Keep me connected with Your saints so that I may be encouraged in the daily battle which is ours in this age of rebellion and sin. Keep me close to You.
Thank You Jesus for paying the price I cannot afford to accomplish the tasks I could never do apart from You. Lead me ever deeper into the mystery of the salvation You have given me so that I may grow to be like You. Help me now and always to look to You, listen to the Holy Spirit, and be constantly focused upon the Father’s will. Lead me today, Jesus, in the truth You have revealed. Amen.
