Prayer for 1 John 2:16

“For everything that belongs to the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one's lifestyle-is not from the Father, but is from the world.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the important instructions in the first letter of John and the dangers of being influenced by the things of the world - the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the boastful pride of life. Keep my eye looking to Jesus; my heart pure towards You and help me to renounce the things of this world so that I do not become enmeshed in in the lustful leanings and ungodly enticements of the world, the flesh and the devil. I pray that I may live my life in loving obedience to Your word and renounce all that is evil. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
