Spiritual Warfare: 'Stand Strong in Faith to Defeat Satan'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Control yourselves and be careful! The devil, your enemy, goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to eat. Refuse to give in to him, by standing strong in your faith. You know that your Christian family all over the world is having the same kinds of suffering.
— 1 Peter 5:8-9 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, my covenant with You has made Satan my enemy. Deliver me from him and from all the evil schemes he has planned for my life. I know he’s looking for a way to destroy me, Lord, so lead me far away from where he wants me to be. And when suffering in this life makes me feel all alone, remind me that Christians all over the world are suffering the same injustices that I am. Grant me endurance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
