Prayer for Exodus 20:4

“Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.”

Heavenly Father, I realised more and more how despicable and obnoxious is the practice of idolatry, when someone or something is seated on the throne of our lives, instead of Jesus Christ, the true and living God. Keep me from any form or 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.. Who alone is worthy of my worship and praise. 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.
