Prayer Tip: Commander of Victories

I recommend 31 Days of Power” by Ruth Myers to help you pray scripture.  Here is an excerpt from pg. 14-15:

Ps. 44:4 You are my King, O God; Command victories for Jacob.

Thank You that prayer and praise give me constant opportunities to be on active duty in the spiritual war that surrounds us.  How glad I am, my King and my God, that through prayer I can influence You to command victories near and far – in my own life and service, in the lives of those around me, and in those laboring for You in the far corners of the earth.

I John 2:15-17 15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

II Corinthians 12:9  And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

So I take my stand in You as the One who is sovereign over all evil influences.  I count on You as a shield around me.  I stand against the works of the flesh and the enticements of the world that so easily distract me and hinder my prayers.  I choose to put off the filthy clothes of fleshly living – the selfishness, the lust, the distrust, the neglect of my privilege of prayer.  As Your chosen child, I put on the beautiful garments You’ve provided through the life of Christ in me.  I give You thanks for my weakness, and I glory in the truth that Your strength is made perfect in weakness – that out of my weakness You are making me strong.
