To Conquer the Thought Life
In the name of Jesus, I take authority over my thought life. Even though I walk (live) in the flesh, I am not carrying on my warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of my warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God, for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds. I refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the (true) knowledge of God; and I lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
With my soul I will bless You, Lord, with every thought and purpose in life. My mind will not wander out of Your presence. My life will glorify You, Father—spirit, soul, and body. I take no account of the evil done to me [I pay no attention to a suffered wrong]. It holds no place in my thought life. I am ever ready to believe the best of every person. I gird up the loins of my mind, and I set my mind and keep it set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.
Whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, I will think on and weigh and take account of these things [I will fix my mind on them].
I have the mind of Christ (the Messiah), and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. In the name of Jesus, I will practice what I have learned and received and heard and seen in Christ, and will model my way of living on it, and the God of peace (of untroubled, undisturbed well-being) will be with me.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
