The Good Fight

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
Thrice happy is that people's case,
whose various blessings thus abound;
who God's true worship still embrace,
and are with his protection crowned.
 —Psalm 144:15
Suggested tune: Winchester New (LM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life, to which you were called and for which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
—1 Timothy 6:12
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The reason why the victory is only by faith, and why the fight of faith is the good fight, is this: It is the Lord Jesus who purchased the victory, and who therefore alone gives power and dominion over the enemy.  If we are in him, and abide in him, and surrender ourselves to live in him, and by faith appropriate what he is, then the victory is in itself our own.
—Andrew Murray
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
O God, my salvation and protection, arm me with the helmet of hope and the shield of your glorious defense, that I, when you have helped me in my necessity, may enter into the joy of those who love you...
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
—Matthew 6:9-13
