How to Have the Mind of Christ

Put on the mind of Christ. This is not a pithy saying by St. Paul. It’s a real, actual, and doable way of life. Richaél Lucero describes how praying declarations make this happen. Listen as she draws on the inspired plant metaphors used by God to unpack their transformative power. Bonus: You’ll also hear how this sets them apart from worldly affirmations/positive self talk..

Declarations to pray over yourself

In the name of Jesus, I declare and decree:

  • God is constantly sharing wisdom from heaven with me.
  • The word of God is living and active within me.
  • Through declarations, I put on the mind of Christ.
  • Jesus wants his word to grow deep roots into my heart and transform me.

Scriptures referenced

Scriptures to use for declarations in place of earthly affirmations: I am smart, I am strong, I am brave.

God will instruct and teach me in the way you should go; He will counsel me…
