I pray Christ: Truth and Righteousness, His.

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place Ephesians 6 v 14

Lord, I put on you today. I clothe myself with Christ. You are Truth. I fasten you around myself. All around me people are stumbling and are unstable in all their ways. But you are the answer. You have the final say in my life. How do I journey the relationships of my life? How do I submit? Do I do that through emotion and how I feel at any one time? Do I do that simply because I am told to? Is it because it is culturally acceptable? No none of those Lord. I do it because of you. I discover truth bows to TRUTH, to you, the Suffering Servant.

I live in a world of fake news and people being fake. I slow my mind so not to believe everything I see and hear. In order to resist deception I hide more in you.

So with the belt of Truth around me I now receive from you the breastplate of righteousness. I clothe myself with Christ. I am not unaware of the devils schemes. Voices of accusation penetrate my ears and mind and sometimes I see them from the unlikeliest of places. But I choose not to be clothed by accusation but by righteousness. It is not mine, it is yours. Your righteousness contains right thinking and right actions. It is not what I can drum up myself. All my righteous acts are like filthy rags. I guard my heart for it is the well-spring of life. It is protected by your righteousness; my thoughts, my feelings, my ambitions and conscience are precious to you and are crucial to my future. Where I have been wounded, heal me.

The accusations have no hold on me because I have the belt and the breastplate on me. The Truth and the Righteousness of Christ clothe me.

Spirit of God hide me in the Truth and the Righteousness of Christ.

Amen
