Protect our thoughts with the helmet of salvation!
But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:8-11
Thank You for today. Help each of us to be joyful and to pray continuously and to give thanks in all circumstances. We are thankful that You are our Lord and Savior. We are thankful that we live in, through and with You! Your ways are so much higher than our ways. Help us in our smallness and stop us from limiting Your bigness.
Thank You for the breastplate of love and faith that protects our heart against the darts of the enemy. As we put on the helmet of salvation and hope, allow it to protect all of our thoughts. And enable it to allow us to take our thoughts captive and replace those thoughts that are not of you with all of Your goodness. Enable us to encourage one another and build each other up in You. Keep us and guide us in all truth and love.
In Jesus name we pray.
