Thorns of the Flesh

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

God desires that you stay the course He has set for you.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I plead the blood of Jesus and declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper. I cancel every demonic strategy against me and the ones I am called to be connected with, to be covered by, or to cover. In Jesus Name, Amen.
