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.”

Praying through 1 John 2:16

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.
