Daily Prayer for August 11th, 2020    

Good morning, God—thank you!! 🙂

Your word says to “eat, drink wine and be merry,” because you already approve what I/we do. However, I am a temple in which your Spirit dwells. Therefore, please help me keep alert and be sober-minded. The devil prowls around, trying to kill, steal, and destroy. And I/we become more vulnerable to his attempts while gratifying fleshy desires. Everything I do, I want to do to honor you!! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 9:7 ESV

Enjoy Life with the One You Love

Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved what you do.

1 Timothy 5:23 ESV

23 (No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.)

Psalm 104:14-15 ESV

14 You cause the grass to grow for the livestock
and plants for man to cultivate,
that he may bring forth food from the earth
15     and wine to gladden the heart of man,
oil to make his face shine
and bread to strengthen man’s heart.

1 Peter 5:8 ESV

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Romans 13:13-14 ESV

13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

1 Corinthians 6:19 ESV

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
