Waging War in Hopeful Prayer

The Christian life is daily battle.  Each day we are called to wage war against the flesh, devil, and the world.  Most of my battles are fought in my thought life.  As I said earlier in my previous post, my thoughts tend toward despair.  I am learning to wage war in my mind with hopeful prayer based on God's Word. 

"I am broken, but by Your wounds I am healed."

When we pray like this, we replace our despairing thoughts with God's hopeful truth.  And, when our thoughts change, we begin to live like the triumphant people that God has called us to be.
