Prayer for Righteousness in Spiritual Warfare


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for instilling Your righteousness in me when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit that guides the growth of that right living in me through the understanding of Your truth. Thank You God for the protection the Holy Spirit gives me in my growth. Please God keep my mind aligned with Your expectations. Please forgive me as I stumble through this growth in You. When I step off the path bring it to my attention quickly so that I can fall instep again and learn. Mold me Holy Spirit! Reveal anything in my heart that might give a foot hold to the enemy so I can confess and repent of it.

No one is good, for sure not me. Only God, You are perfect. All my over reaching struggles to appear all together are futile. I can not compare my walk with the Lord to others. I thank You God for the blood of Jesus and old things have passed away, new things have come. Lord help me practice righteousness. Help me make a conscious effort to act in a way that is consistent with my life in Christ. Renew my mind, realign my passions, attitudes, and give me strength to live in a way that is pleasing to You God. Keep me focused on my spiritual health Lord, keep my soul operating in alignment with Your heart. Continue my growth in You. Help me recognize Your true convictions vs the enemies false condemnations.

In Jesus Name I pray,

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth, buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,” Ephesians 6:14

“Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13

I will continue to study Ephesians 6:10-20. I can not say enough how I enjoyed Priscilla Shirer’s, The Armor of God, Bible study. This was my third prayer strategy I developed after week three on the breastplate of righteousness. This is truly life applicable and needed resources in our daily Christian walk.

I believe in the God of the Bible and that Jesus is His Son who died on the cross at Calvary for the sins of the world. This free gift is for you and for me, if we accept that fact by faith and strive daily to follow His Living Word that is the same today, yesterday, and forever. Also, for the record, I love my boyfriend whom I have been married to for going on 18 years. We have two boys that are both in high school, which is taught at home by yours truly. Cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, goats, turkeys, squirrels, chipmunks, peacocks, song birds, coyotes, raccoons, opossums, all call our yard home and I have a story about all of them. I am originally from Kentucky, with deep roots in Eastern Kentucky's Appalachian Mountains. I grew up in a working class suburb of Lexington, Kentucky. I am married to a quiet feller from Birmingham, Alabama. We met in Tampa, FL, married, had two kids and moved to California. From there we landed in Alabama for a few years and then by the providence of God we moved to our little piece of heaven in Georgia where we live in a white house, on a little hill, in the rocky foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have some things I think I might want to write that maybe someone might want to read... mostly stories and experiences of my own and a few I can relay from second hand knowledge but none with great confidence, pride, or true story telling ability, just overthought ramblings that I quickly need to capture before I forget.
