Spiritual Warfare: 'Repentance is Necessary!'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, December 12, 2023

The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands. They did not cease to worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which cannot see nor hear nor walk. Nor did they repent of their murders or their magical arts or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
— Revelation 9:20-21 MEV

Today's Prayer

Lord, I repent. I have put MANY things above my relationship with You in the past, and I have let my evil deeds and my pursuit of evil activities fill my mind and cause me to lose focus on what’s really important—my relationship with You. My eyes have seen things they shouldn’t, and I have let my mind wander down paths that Christians should avoid. Forgive me. Change me. Lead me. And fill me with a deep desire to obey Your commands and follow the narrow pathway that leads to eternal life with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
