A reflection on conquering evil

Reflections for the day

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

John 14:30-31

I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.

The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayer-less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.

Samuel Chadwick

No one is a firmer believer in the power of prayer than the devil; not that he practices it, but he suffers from it.

Guy H. King


A reflection on conquering evil

Heavenly Father,

Thou art a loving Father and thou art a Holy Father. We acknowledge thou sent thou only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, into thou world to save Mankind from all sin. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to Mankind that much of thou ministry of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one which can be described as a conflict with evil, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal to Mankind that the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that glorifies thou name, and is one that overcomes all evil.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time that we reflect upon the nature of evil. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who doubt the existence of an evil that can be described as personal, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who doubt the existence of an evil that can be described as malignant. We are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who have a belief that there is good in thou world that we live in, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are some who believe that there is an evil that can be described as impersonal.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal to Mankind that thou art all that is holy, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal to Mankind that Satan is the personification of all that is evil. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures reveal what can be described as a conflict between heaven and hell. We are able to see in a way that is clear that much of what happens in thou world can be described as good, and that some of what happens in thou world can be described as evil. We acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear that there is what can be described as a conflict between good and evil, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that many desire for good to overcome all that is evil.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that evil can be overcome if we turn to thou. We acknowledge that through a faith of thou that it can be seen that the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is one that can be described as a victory over evil, and that thou desire is for all Mankind to be a follower of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in doing so to announce a victory over evil that is thou victory.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to guide Mankind to turn a back on all that is evil, and to turn to thou always. We ask thou to guide many to witness thou word, which is thou word which is good, and which is righteous, and we ask thou to guide all thou way to thou.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that there are times when many will be faced with a difficulty, and a difficulty that is faced will mean that some will turn a back on thou. We acknowledge that a difficulty that is faced will for some feel like a conflict of faith, and that a conflict of faith is one that will be described by some as one that is evil. We acknowledge that there is a need to be strong in a faith of thou always , and we acknowledge that there is a need to be steadfast in a faith of thou always. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal to Mankind that there is a protection from all that is evil, and that a protection is one of thou cross, and that thou cross, and the resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, are ones that are powerful.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal to Mankind that thou truth which is of a nature that is divine, is one that brings thou light into thou world, and thou light is one that will overcome all that is evil.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures reveal that there is a protection for all against evil when there is prayer, and that when prayer is said in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit,  that a prayer is one that can be described as empowered.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Mankind will turn a back on all that is evil, and we hope and we pray that many will turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that good will overcome all that is evil.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake, in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, and  in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for all to save Mankind from all sin, and to show all thou way to thou, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives within Man, and who dwells amongst Man, and who advocates for Man, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Our Father, it is with some concern that we learn that young children are being influenced by pornography on the internet and that it is affecting them mentally, often unbeknown to their parents. This is one aspect of evil which needs to be tackled by the internet providers so that their childhood might be normal We pray that thou will guide them to make wise decisions. Amen.
