Good Spiritual Hygiene
Do we know about good hygiene in the spiritual realm? Each day offers the opportunity to engage with the world and share Christ's love. Pray for protection and cleansing, just as we would clean our clothes or brush our teeth. This book offers powerful and effective prayers for spiritual hygiene.
Daily Prayers for Every Interaction
In the natural, we know about clothes and jackets, washing and brushing, about soap and toothpaste and hair care.
But in the spiritual, do we know about good hygiene? Do we know how to protect and cleanse?
Each day offers us the opportunity to engage with the world around us and share the love of Christ.
Each of these engagements offers potential for good or ill, for glory or shame.
How lovely, to approach each day with prayers to stay protected from attack, and to clean ourselves off after an intense interaction.
And there’s no shame in these prayers! Just like we don’t have shame for needing to put on clean clothes and wash off after a workout … no shame in praying for protection and cleansing.
These are natural outworkings of life.
The authors literally pray these prayers every day, and can tell if they don't. Bob had been an intercessor for 38 years without praying these prayers, and when he started, he noticed an immediate advance in many areas of his life.
This is the book that has had the most testimonies as to its powerful and effective action.
As the apostle Paul said in his letter to the Ephesians: “Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet.”
Take all the help you can get.
My college mentor connie Anderson, now head of Intercessory Prayer for the college ministry InterVarsity, told of an interaction with a seasoned overseas missionary.
“You need to daily pray protection over yourself and your family.”
I put that in a category in my head named, “Things I should do, but don’t, and feel rather guilty about.”
My husband and I have always had an apostolic gifting to plant, or encourage those who are planting, new works of God in areas with little witness. Soon the opposition of the enemy became nearly unbearable.
We began to take our missionary’s advice seriously, and started to pray together daily with a commitment to protect ourselves in prayer from the enemy.
