Before this faith came, we were all held prisoners by the law. We had no freedom until God showed us the way of faith that was coming. In other words, the law was our guardian leading us to Christ so that we could be made right with God through faith. Now the way of faith has come, and we no longer live under a guardian.” Galatians 3:23-25 NCV
— Galatians 3:23-25 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, for so much of my life I was in a prison of fear and anxiety and stress. I let these traits fill my days and disrupt my sleep at night. I woke up each day with more fear and worry and exhaustion from my fitful nightmares. The Prince of Darkness held me captive. But no more. I now choose the way of faith. I choose to trust Your promises and dwell on Your words of encouragement instead of Satan’s deceptive fantasies that bring nothing but anxiety and depression. Open my eyes to Your encouraging truths every day when I awake. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
