“Father, every morning help me put on my armor. The armor you have given me, so that I can take my stand against the schemes of the devil.
Precious Jesus, guide me everyday in the direction you want me to go. Protect me in every way from the temptations thrown in my path. Give me strength to keep going though I stumble.
Here, Lord, I abandon myself to you. I give up all my plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes and accept your will for my life. I leave myself in your hands, my all utterly to you to be yours forever.
Use me, Jesus, use me. Take this life of mine and use me. Mold me and make what you would have me be. I only want to serve you faithfully. Fill me and seal me with the Holy Spirit. Use me as you will, send me where you want, work out your will in my life at any cost, now and forever.
Almighty Father, Amazing God, strengthen my walk with you. Shine through me day after day. In my actions let you be the one that shines. Take captive of my thoughts and control my life. O Lord, strengthen my light. Let me shine!
Lord all you have done for me is unbelievable. You give me grace, you give me love. You hear my cry when I need you most. You listen and understand me when no one else seem to understand. You give me so much, even though I deserve nothing!
Here I am Lord, use me now. With my armor I have truth, righteousness, readiness from the gospel of peace, a shield of faith, salvation and the word of God. I am ready to stand firm against the devil and his flaming arrows of evil. Guide me so I do not fall. As I travel through this dark world, be my light. Send me to that darkest place where you need to shine the most. Here I am, use me now.
O Lord, I pray, AMEN”
Yes, a little corny now. I was pretty young when I wrote it. But when I wrote it, I meant it. I was crying out to God asking him for my place in this world. I have continued to do that over the years, ask God to send me somewhere great, somewhere where I can do great things for him. As I read that today I am realizing that God has done just that, He has put me some where great, somewhere where I can do great and mighty things for Him.
He has called me to be a wife and a mother. This is my battle ground. This is where I am serving Him.
