Praying from James 4:7 relating to Submission, Resistance, Obedience
Dear God, I humbly come before you and submit myself to your will. Help me to resist the temptations of the devil and to stand firm in my faith. Give me the strength and courage to overcome any obstacles that come my way. I pray that you will protect me from the schemes of the enemy and that he will flee from me. Thank you for your love and grace that sustains me each day. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
