A reflection on conquering evil (one of several)

Reflections for the day

Ephesians 4:27

 and do not give the devil a foothold.

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


A reflection on conquering evil (one of several)

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 sins. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that much of the 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 teach Mankind that the death of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou resurrection of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was one that glorified thou name, and was one that overcame evil.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou art most powerful, and we acknowledge that thou art present always, and we acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who knows all, and we acknowledge that thou art Our Heavenly Father who sees all, and we acknowledge that thou art in possession of all thou facts.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that thou art all that is holy, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that Satan is the personification of all that is evil. We acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind that thou world that we live in is one that is tainted by what can be described as evil, and we acknowledge that thou Scriptures teach Mankind there is a  need to always remain vigilant, and a vigilance is one that can be described as one that is watchful of an influence that can be described as less than holy.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was tempted by Satan, and the temptation was one that came when thou Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, was in the wilderness, and the temptation was one that came when thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was faced with a difficulty, and a difficulty was one that was related to the environment, and a difficulty was one that was related to a state of the body which was one that was weakened through what can be described as prolonged fasting.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to help all at a time of difficulty when a body, and when a mind is weakened, and we ask thou to help many to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to help many to emulate thou life of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that some can be  tempted, and that a temptation is one that is often described as sin, and that a temptation is one that is seen by some as one that is acceptable.

Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to help Mankind to recognise the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to turn to thou always, and we ask thou to guide many to say sorry for an error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to make a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the payment of taxes, and there is much said in the media about what is described as an avoidance of a payment of taxes. Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that many will reflect carefully upon the payment of taxes, and we hope and we pray that  thou art able to permit a number of opportunities to be  placed before some to pay a tax that is due.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we are able to see in a way that is clear that there is much said in the media about the internet, and that the issues that many are concerned about are ones that are described as an influence, and that influence is one that is seen as corrupt.

Heavenly Father, we ask that a number of opportunities are placed before many at the International Defence Studies in Estonia, and that many will reflect carefully upon the nature of an influence, and we hope and we pray that the right choices are made to safeguard a security, and we hope and we pray that the right choices are made to safeguard a child, and are made to safeguard a  young person, from all that is seen to be corrupt.

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

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and with thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and always will be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power, and being, that governs all who are of this earth that we live on, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    At this time, when the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games will be celebrated this year in the UK, it is sad to hear that police and the military are having to draw up plans to defend the ordinary people from terrorist attempts which threaten to disrupt the festivities. Heavenly Father, we pray that thou will protect us from such acts. Amen
