We ask You, help us to adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. If we are fighting against sin–“the sin which easily beset us” (Hebrews 12:12)–Lord, lend us heavenly weapons and heavenly strength so that we may cut the giants down, these men of Anak that come against us. (See Numbers 13:33) We fell very feeble. Oh make us “strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” (Ephesians 6:10).

May we never let sin have any rest in us. May we chase it, drive it out, slay it, hang it on a tree, abhor it, and may we “cleave to that which is good” (Romans 12:9).
