Day 112 Our Journey Continues

Daily Scripture and Prayer

Lord Jesus, we know there are so many times our thoughts get the best of us. Our past scars have left us cynical and untrusting in so many ways. We want to be an overcomer of those thoughts and tendencies. Lord, you know all of our thoughts. We have a hard time controlling ourselves when they come into our mind. We don’t want them to influence our thinking. Help us stay alert to the roaring lion that surrounds us. Help us to fight against the evil one that attacks our mind. We know you paid a high price for our sins. We never in any way want to diminish the gift you gave us. Help us to keep our thoughts turned to you. That is the key to defeating the attacks of the enemy. We search for your peace in this time of great turmoil as we bring our personal concerns to you today. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
