These are great confessions; affirm them with confidence.

I.  The Lord is the strength of my mind, so today I think sound, healthy thoughts.  I think upon those things that are true,
hones, just, pure, lovely and of a good report.  A strong mind is a positive mind, the mind of Christ.  “I have the mind of
Christ” I Corinthians 2:16.

II.  The Lord is the strength of my
ears, so I hear well today.  Seven times in Revelation 2 and 3 the command comes,
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith…”  Most important, with my renewed, sound, strong mind, I hear
what the Spirit saith unto me.

III.  The Lord is the strength of my
eyes, so I have good vision for today.  I see others through eyes of love, kindness,
and good will.

IV.  The Lord is the strength of my
mouth, so I speak those words that are edifying, ministering grace to those who hear
me.  Isaiah 50:4, “The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in
season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, He wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”  I refrain
from speaking those words that are negative, destructive, corrupt, critical, harsh or unkind.

V.  The Lord is the strength of my
heart, so I have a good sound heartbeat for today.  My prayer, “Lord be thou the
strength of my physical heart as long as I serve you on this earth.  Yea, 70 years and by reason of strength 80 years or
more.”  Oh heart, do your good work for this day.

VI.  The Lord is the strength of my
hands, so that whatsoever my hands find to do, they do it with all their might.

VII.  The Lord is the strength of every
organ, tissue, bone, fiber, nerve and cell in my body.  The Lord is the strength of
my life from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.  When my feet become tired, sore, aching, the Lord renews my
feet by the invigoration of His strength.

VIII.  The Lord is the strength of my life – my whole
life – spirit, soul and body.  He infuses strength into the hidden man
of the heart.

IX.  My affirmations for today: Daniel 11:32, “The people that know their God shall be strong and do exploits.”  Psalm 29:
11, “The Lord will give
strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.”  Philippians 4:13, “I can do
all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (not weakeneth me).  Nehemiah 8:10, “The joy of the Lord is my
strength.”  Deuteronomy 33:25, “As my days are, so shall my strength be.”  II Corinthians 12:10, “When I am weak, then
am I strong.”

X.  I affirm it five times:

      “The Lord is the strength of my life”
      “The Lord is the strength of my life”
      “The Lord is the strength of my life”
      “The Lord is the strength of my life”
      “The Lord is the strength of my life”

XI.  I think strength.  I believe in the Lord’s strength.  I talk strength.  Joel 3:10, “Let the weak say, I am strong.”  I confess
I am strong.  Often I say, “Strength, Strength, Strength,” as I speak the Word to my spirit.  Praise the Lord!

XII.  I,___________, affirm the Lord is the strength of my life.
