Day 20: Receiving a Sound Mind

Let this mind be in you
which was also in Christ Jesus.
- Philippians 2:5
God is not the author of confusion
but of peace.
- I Corinthians 14:33
Lord, thank you for promising us a sound mind. I lay claim to that promise for David and Elizabeth. I pray that their minds be clear, alert, bright, intelligent, stable, peaceful and uncluttered. I pray there be no confusion, no dullness, and no unbalanced, scattered, unorganized or negative thinking. I pray that their minds will not be filled with complex or confusing thoughts. Rather, give them clarity of mind so that they are able to think straight at all times. Give them the ability to make clear decisions, to understand all they need to know, and to be able to focus on what they need to do. Where there is now any mental instability, impairment or dysfunction, I seek healing in Jesus' name. May they be renewed in the spirit of their minds (Ephesians 4:23) and have the mind of Christ (I Corinthians 2:16).
I pray that they will so love the Lord with all their heart, soul and mind that there will be no room in their hearts for the lies of the enemy or the clamoring of the world. May the Word of God take root in their hearts and fill their minds with things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8). Give them understanding that what goes into their minds becomes a part of them, so that they will weigh carefully what they see and hear.
You have said, "You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You" (Isaiah 26:3). I pray that their faith in You and Your Word will grow daily so that they will live forever in peace and soundness of mind.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that you may prove what is the good and acceptable
and perfect will of God.
- Romans 12:2
This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord,
that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk,
in the futility of their mind,
having their understanding darkened,
being alienated from the life of God,
because of the ignorance that is in them,
because of the blindness of their heart.
- Ephesians 4:17-18
