Heavenly Father, forgive us for the times we have fallen into the trap of carnality and worldly thinking. I pray that I may keep the eyes of my consciousness upon the Lord Jesus and keep me from allowing the mind-set of the world to infiltrate my heart and affect my witness. I pray that I may develop spiritual wisdom before You and be equipped to forward the good news of the gospel of Christ in a mature manner, that does not engage in unnecessary squabbling or petty differences, but is ready to give an instructive answer for the hope I have in Christ. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.”
