His Mind

Lord, I pray for Your protection on my husband's mind.  Shield him from the lies of the enemy.  Help him to clearly discern between Your voice and any other, and show him how to take every thought captive as You have instructed us to do.  May he thirst for Your Word and hunger for Your truth so that he can recognize wrong.  Give him strength to resist lying thoughts.  Remind him that he has the mind of Christ.  Where the enemy's lies have already invaded his thoughts, I push them back to inviting the power of the Holy Spirit to cleanse his mind.  Lord, You have given me authority "over all the power of the enemy"  (Luke 10:19).  By that authority given to me in Jesus Christ, I command all lying spirits away from my husband's mind.  I proclaim that God has given (husband's name) a sound mind.  He will not entertain confusion, but live in clarity.  He will not be tormented with impure, evil, negative, or sinful thoughts, but be transformed by the renewing of his mind, that he may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).

Enable him to "be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might"  (Ephesians 6:10).  Help him to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let his requests be made known to You; and may Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, guard his heart and mind through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6,7).  And finally, whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, having virtue, or anything praiseworthy, let him think on these things (Philippians 4:8).
