Day 17 - 40 Day Prayer Pledge
Posted on March 13 2020
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. James 4:7-8
God is so eager to teach us, guide us, and lead us to fulfillment we long for, but He respects our freedom. We have to choose to follow Him. And we have an enemy who tries to discourage us from that, the devil. What kinds of things tend to keep me from “drawing near to God”? What kinds of things tend to help me “draw near to God”? How firmly do I believe that God wants to draw near to me, if I will keep letting Him? Read the verses again, exercise your faith in God’s desire to be near to you.

A Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
