Praying the Bible ~ James 4:6-7

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: James 4:6-7
But he gives greater grace. Therefore he says: “God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, our battle is not against flesh and blood but spiritual powers of darkness. The greatest weapon you have given us to fight against sin and Satan is the unconquerable one–yourself. If you are for us, none can be against us. Your grace strengthens us to overcome every evil force. Yet, this requires humility on our part. This requires the realization that we cannot win on our own. This requires our hearts submitting to you. Father, remind us each day to rest in your grace and follow your will. Help us live in humble submission to your greatness, power, and love. Amen.
