This prayer exercise is designed to highlight the function of some of our major body parts in our spiritual development. In addition to what is written, look up the extra Scriptures and meditate on them. Meditate on one section per day.
Lord, thank you for allowing me to have the Scriptures to direct me in how to develop a Christ-like mind. Develop in me the ability to be constantly renewing my mind spiritually. “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” Romans 12:2. (Romans 12:16, Isaiah 26:3, 2 Timothy 1:7, Philippians 2:5)
Direct my eyes to constantly be turned away from the evil of this world. May my focus always be on the good things of God. “I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me” Psalm 101:3. (Psalm 32:8, Psalm 119:37, Psalm 121:1, Matthew 18:9)
Open my ears to hear clearly what You are telling me from Your Word and Spirit. Give me discernment when listening to others to tell if their speech is in accordance with Your Biblical principles. “The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge” Proverbs 18:15. (1 Corinthians 2:9, Revelations 2:7, Exodus 10: 2, Jeremiah 19:3)
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
