1. SUBMITTING TO GOD
•Because of all You have done for me, I present my body to You as a
living sacrifice for this day. I want to be transformed by the renewing
of my mind, affirming that Your will for me is good and acceptable and
perfect. (Romans 12:1-2)
2. ADORATION AND THANKSGIVING
•Offer a brief word of praise to God for one or more of His attributes
(e.g., love and compassion, grace, mercy, holiness, goodness,

character, eternality) and/or works (e.g., creation, care, redemption,
loving purposes, second coming).
•Thank Him for the good things in your life.
•Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed
sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His
forgiveness. (Psalm 139:23-24)
4. MY IDENTITY IN CHRIST
•”I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but
Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live
by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for
me.” (Galatians 2:20)
*I have forgiveness from the penalty of sin because Christ died for me.
(Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:3)

(Colossians 2:11; 1 Peter 2:24)
*I have fulfillment for this day because Christ lives in me.
*By faith, I will allow Christ to manifest His life through me. (2
5. FILLING OF THE SPIRIT
•Ask the Spirit to control and fill you for this day.
•I want to be filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18) When I walk by
the Spirit, I will not carry out the desire of the flesh. (Galatians
5:16) If I live by the Spirit, I will also walk by the Spirit.
6. FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
•Pray on the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)
•”Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag
and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its
own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does
not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all
things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1
7. PURPOSE OF MY LIFE
•I want to love the Lord my God with all my heart, and with all my soul,
and with all my mind, and I want to love my neighbor as myself.
(Matthew 22:37, 39) My purpose is to love God completely, love self
correctly, and love others compassionately.
•I will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness. (Matthew 6:33)
•I have been called to follow Christ and to be a fisher of men.
•I will be a witness to those who do not know Him and participate in the
Great Commission to go and make disciples. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts
•I want to glorify the Father by bearing much fruit, and so prove to be
Christ’s disciple. (John 15:8)
8. CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE DAY
•I will trust in the Lord with all my heart, and not lean on my own
understanding. In all my ways I will acknowledge Him, and He will make
my paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
•”God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28; also
I acknowledge that You are in control of all things in my life, and that
You have my best interests at heart. Because of this I will trust and
obey You today.
•Review and commit the events of this day into the hands of God.
9. PROTECTION IN THE WARFARE
Against the World: Renew
•I will set my mind on the things of the Spirit. (Romans 8:5)
•Since I have been raised up with Christ, I will keep seeking the things
above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. I will set my
mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
(Colossians 3:1-2; also see 3:3-4 and Hebrews 12:1-2)
•I will be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving I will let my requests be made known to
God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall
guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Whatever is true, whatever
is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything
worthy of praise, I will let my mind dwell on these things.
(Philippians 4:6-8; also see 4:9)
Against the Flesh: Reckon
•I know that my old self was crucified with Christ, so that I am no
longer a slave to sin, for he who has died is freed from sin. I will
reckon myself as dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. I will
not present the members of my body to sin as instruments of
unrighteousness, but I will present myself to God as one alive from the
dead, and my members as instruments of righteousness to God. (Romans
6:6-7, 11, 13)
Against the Devil: Resist
•As I submit myself to God and resist the devil, he will flee from me.
•I will be of sober spirit and on the alert. My adversary, the devil,
prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But I will
resist him, firm in my faith. (1 Peter 5:8-9)
•I will take up the full armor of God, that I may be able to resist and
stand firm. I put on the belt of truth and the breastplate of
righteousness; I put on my feet the preparation of the gospel of peace;
and I take up the shield of faith with which I will be able to
extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. I take the helmet
of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
With all prayer and petition I will pray at all times in the Spirit and
be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.
10. THE COMING OF CHRIST AND MY FUTURE WITH HIM
•Your kingdom come, Your will be done. (Matthew 6:10)
•You have said, “I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
•I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to
be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to me. (Romans 8:18)
•I will not lose heart, but though my outer man is decaying, yet my
inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction
is producing for me an eternal weight of glory far beyond all
comparison, while I look not at the things which are seen, but at the
things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal,
but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
•My citizenship is in heaven, from which also I eagerly wait for a
Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 3:20)
•(Also consider 2 Timothy 4:8; Hebrews 11:1, 6; 2 Peter 3:11-12; 1 John
