“27 Neither give place to the devil.” ~ Ephesians 4:27 (KJV)
We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.
Lord, we come with a special prayer today that You will help us to give every single area of our lives to You and not the devil. May we avoid those places where we know trouble lurks. May be avoid keeping company with people we know are bad influences. Father, take our minds, eyes, and ears into Your holy captivity, for that is where we are truly free. A healthy relationship with You is not worth sacrificing for the sake of short-lived pleasures. Fill every place in our lives, Lord, and may we take satisfaction in the fullness of Your magnificence and glory.
It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
