PRAYER AGAINST BAD THOUGHTS
Dear loving God,
Sometimes I have terrible thoughts that run through my head.
Do you see me, dear Lord? Do you see my struggle?
You are mighty. You are strong, and you love me.
Set me free Lord!
Remove the bad thoughts that torment me.
Cast the enemy out of my mind and my life. Let no attack, deceit or contamination affect me any more.
For I have been washed clean by the blood of the Lamb.
Your mighty Spirit protects me always.
All victory is yours alone.
Dear loving Lord, clear my mind, bring rest to my heart with the sweet caress of your loving grace.
In Jesus’ holy name,
