A Prayer For Overcoming Our Arch Enemy

Father, our hope plummets and our souls despair when we consider the first portion of John 10:10; “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy”, for it describes our arch enemy whose sole mission is to take anything and everything that is of importance and value from us. But the gloom and despair is lifted as Jesus further tells His listeners, “but I have come to give life and give it more abundantly.” The thief takes, but You give, for You are the giver of life, giving freely and abundantly, not only in this life but in the life to come. Thank You for defeating the enemy of our soul that seeks to destroy with his arsenal of distraction, denial, downplay and distortion. You don’t tear down but build us up for You are our Redeemer and Deliverer, for which we are thankful. Amen.’);
