Soldier Prayers for the Battlefield
page Live by the Spirit
Help me, dear Lord, to live by the Spirit so I don’t give in to the desires of the flesh or my sinful nature. My sinful nature only wants what is contrary to the Spirit, and that causes my nature and my spirit to war against each other.
But my desire, Lord, is to continually be led by the Holy Spirit. I purpose not to give in to the sinful nature of immorality, impurity, debauchery, idolatry, witchcraft (rebellion), hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissension, factions, envy, drunkenness, and the like. Living like this would mean I could not inherit the kingdom of God.
Instead, Lord, I want to live a life that is totally in the Spirit filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. I crucify my sinful nature and commit to living in the spirit, where I will continually walk.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
