Prayer: Set My Mind

Colossians 3:1-4

Heavenly Father,

I humbly confess that I allow the things of this world to distract me from the life You have called me to live.  The distractions politics, entertainment, fun, and pleasure prevent me from truly setting my mind and my heart on those heavenly things which lead to life.

Renew my heart and mind so I will desire heavenly things.  Strengthen my will so I can say no to the things of this world.  Give me eyes to see from an eternal perspective.  Empower me to live a life that glorifies you.  This is the true desire of my heart.  Help me Father to pursue You with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Amen.
