Spiritual Warfare: 'Use Me to Open the Eyes of the Lost'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, May 18, 2021

The Lord also said, "I will protect you from the Jews and from the Gentiles that I am sending you to. I want you to open their eyes, so that they will turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then their sins will be forgiven, and by faith in me they will become part of God's holy people."
— Acts 26:17-18 CEV

Today's Prayer

Lord, use me to help open the eyes of the lost. Help them to see that Satan is blinding their mind with his great power. Enlighten them to God's way of truth and light. Help us all to see our own sins and have a heart willing to repent and turn from darkness to Your glorious light. Help us to see our need for Jesus and our need for forgiveness. Protect me, as I try to help fight this battle, Lord, because many lives are at stake. Use me to make a difference. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
