If we will be effective in spiritual warfare, the first field of conflict where we must learn warfare is the battle ground of the mind: i.e., the ‘place of the skull” To defeat the devil, we must be crucified in the place of the skull. We must be renewed in the spirit of our minds.
Gracious Father, you have called me out of darkness into you marvelous light, and for this I give you thanks and praise. Please continually crucify my old ways that I might be born afresh of your spirit, always and in everything, to the glory of your name. Amen
