Praying through Exodus 20:4

Heavenly Father, I realise, more and more, how despicable and obnoxious is the practice of idolatry, when someone or something is seated on the throne of my life instead of Jesus Christ, the true and living God. Keep me from any form of idolatry. Protect me from the wiles of the devil, and help me to keep the eyes of my heart on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith. Knowing that I died with Christ and have been raised up in Him into newness of life, I pray that king self may be kept in the place of death and that I will not be hoodwinked into giving honour to anything, except my God and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:”

Praying through Exodus 20:12

Heavenly Father, thank You for my parents and for giving me life. Thank You for the lessons I have learned and the good times we have shared together. Forgive me for the times when I have not honoured my father and mother as I ought - for I am aware that this is dishonouring to You. From this day forward, I pray that I may honour You in all my interactions with my family and friends, and may my life be honouring to You. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”

Praying through Exodus 20:13

Heavenly Father, Your Laws are gracious and good and expose the dark thoughts of the heart that leads to the ungodly works of the devil. Satan was a murderer from the beginning and we understand how the thoughts of the heart can translate into murder - as brutal as an assassin's blade or the terrorist's murderous bomb. Keep my mind pure and focused on the Lord and I pray that my heart may reflect the grace and love of God for my fellow men and that many may come to faith as I testify of Your goodness and love. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“Thou shalt not kill.”
(Exodus 20:13)
