OUR SPECIAL FEATUREMelanie Beresh Smith

For our retreat’s Special Feature segment and to stay with our theme of “Standing Firm”, we asked Melanie Beresh Smith, Barrister/Solicitor and member of Christian Legal Fellowship to share with us on different issues facing the courts today.

As Christians, we live in challenging times.  There are various issues pushing through the courts that continue to shape our world, and it is important to be aware of these issues and how far-reaching the potential ramifications can be.

About Christian Legal Fellowship:

CLF seeks to advance the public good by articulating to our courts legal and
moral principles that are consistent with, and illuminated by, our Christian faith.  CLF continues to intervene in Canadian legal proceedings, seeking to advance justice, protect the vulnerable, and advocate for freedom of religion, conscience, and expression.

Below are some of the requests that she has asked us to lift up in prayer.

Heavenly Father,

Your Warrior prepares for Battle.

Today I claim Victory over Satan by putting on

The Whole Armour of God!

I put on the Girdle of Truth!

May I Stand Firm in the Truth of your Word

So I will not be a Victim of Satan’s Lies.

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!

May it Guard my Heart from Evil

So I will remain Pure and Holy,

protected under the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I put on the Shoes of Peace!

May I Stand Firm in the Good News of the Gospel

So your Peace will shine through Me

And be a Light to All I encounter.

I take the Shield of Faith!

May I be Ready for Satan’s Fiery Darts of

Doubt, Denial & Deceit

So I will Not be Vulnerable to Spiritual Defeat.

I put on the Helmet of Salvation!

May I keep my Mind Focused on You

So Satan will Not have a Stronghold on my Thoughts.

I take the Sword of the Spirit!

May the two-edged Sword of your Word

Be Ready in my Hands

So I can Expose the Tempting Words of Satan.

By Faith your Warrior has put on

The Whole Armour of God!

I am Prepared to Live this day

in Spiritual Victory!

AMEN
