I praise You Lord for Your Word and the valuable lessons it contains. Thank You for protection it affords and the treasures that are hidden within. May Your Word become to me - my daily sustenance and my life-support, knowing that it alone can keep me from the evil one and enable me to live a life pleasing to You. I pray that day by day You will teach me and train me through Your Word, so that I do not go astray, and further I ask that You use me to guide others into You paths of peace. in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 119:11
Heavenly Father, I long to be like Jesus and know that in myself I will always fall short of His standard of perfection and purity, but Lord I pray that You would examine my inner heart and secret thoughts and identify in me those areas that need to be rooted out, so that Christ may live in me and work through me to Your greater glory.
Give me the grace to recognise any impure areas in my life that need to be rooted out – and make me willing to engage in the painful process of having all that dishonours Your name cut away.. by the Holy Spirit’s scalpel of truth. Help me to keep the eyes of my heart fixed on Jesus Christ my Lord and grant me the purity of heart and integrity of spirit that is becoming of a vessel fit for Your use.
Begin to search me today O Lord and know my heart, and see if there is any impurity of heart, evil intent or prideful thoughts and may I be willing to be stripped of everything that is not of You, so that I may be pure and holy in Your sight, in Jesus name I pray,
