Spiritual Warfare: 'Pray for Eyes to See Ourselves as God Sees Us'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, August 3, 2021

I know what you do, that you are not hot or cold. I wish that you were hot or cold! 16 But because you are lukewarm—neither hot, nor cold—I am ready to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich, and I have become wealthy and do not need anything.’ But you do not know that you are really miserable, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.
— Revelation 3:15-17 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess that I am often blind to my own condition, my own weaknesses and faults. I am asking You to open my eyes to be able to see myself as You see me. Take away my blind spots and remove my distorted view that keeps me from recognizing and admitting my own faults. Give me an obedient heart and a willing mind to change and become more like Your Son Jesus. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
