Dress me, Jesus

I read this at yesterday and liked it. It speaks of our need to have faith that in Christ we can prevail when we cannot in ourselves alone. Passing it on... 

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Dear Jesus,

You told me to resist the devil and he would flee from me, but I have no resistance. 
You have all the power and resistance I’ll ever need, so give me the power to resist.

You told me I could move my mountains if I had faith even as a mustard seed;
Yet my mountain won’t move even though my faith in you is as great as I can conceive it.
You made the heavens and earth; please move my mountain.

You said, “Flee the very appearance of evil!”
So I ran hard, but sin overtook me in my finest hour of effort.
You have power over all the power of the enemy with miracles, signs and wonders.
Deliver me from the trap of Satan.

I don’t even have the strength to put on the whole armor, so dress me as my armor-bearer.
Do for me what I know I cannot do for myself.

~ David Wilkerson
