Renew My Mind
Renew My Mind
Father God, You who makes all things new through the power of the Holy Spirit, renew my mind I pray! May I not conform to the things of this world, but instead, may I be continually transformed by the renewing of my mind with Your Word.
Lord in many ways I have been lazy and undisciplined in regards to the use of my mind. Forgive me I pray and renew my mind. (I lay before you my use of my computer and technology, my TV and DVD viewing, the things I read…pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you) I have entertained philosophies of the world that are contrary to Your Word. Lord, forgive me and renew my mind. (I lay before you the way that I have rationalized behavior or condoned values of this world…pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you)I have watered down the truth of Your Word in order to condone my sin. Lord forgive me and renew my mind. (I lay before you the excuses that I have made for my thoughts, attitudes and actions that are contrary to Your Word…pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you) I have allowed fear and anxious thoughts to overwhelm me. Lord forgive me and renew my mind and make my heart steadfast. (I choose now to cast all of my cares and fears onto You and ask that Your peace be poured out on me…pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you)
I ask that I might have Your mind in the many situations that I encounter daily, and never turn away from Your truth. Give me I pray a fresh hunger to study Your Word, that I might be equipped for every good work. And Father, in a world of watered down truth, empty philosophies and hopelessness, empower me by Your Spirit to be prepared to answer everyone who asks me to give the reason for the hope that I have. May Jesus be seen clearly in my daily living. Strengthen my faith, Father, for Your Word says that if I do not stand firm in my faith I will not stand at all. O God, help me to stand. In Jesus’ name. Amen..
