The book of Proverbs says that life and death are in the power of the tongue…what you talk about and think …you bring to pass. When we begin to say the same thing God promises in the scripture…when we attempt to have the mind of Christ, our faith builds in our hearts and our lives begin to change forever.
Heavenly Father, may Your name be holy in me. May Your kingdom come to me this day, And may I do Your will on earth as it is done in Heaven. Strengthen me this day in mind and body that we may have your mind and carry out Your will more completely. Forgive my offenses for it is not my desire to cause You pain or any other person as well. Give me a forgiving heart to those who would harm me and help me follow in the example Jesus has given me. Lead me not into temptation but deliver me from Satan and all his works and give me perseverance and strength in the face of temptation. For Your kingdom is everlasting.
I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
