Today’s Prayer Challenge: Keeping My Head Buried in the Word

Penn-Speaks-Prayer-Challenge

“4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words. 5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therin with thanksgiving.8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” ~ Colossians 2:4 –8 (KJV)

Dear Lord,

We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.

Lord, we come with a special prayer today that You will help us to keep our heads buried in Your Word and not unrighteous ideas of the world. Father, sometimes what society deems to be permissible sounds really enticing, but thank You for guiding us along Your straight and narrow path. Thank You for letting us not only read Your Word and understand Your Word but have the heart and mind to actually heed and act upon it.  

It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
