Father, help me to remain unspotted from the world. Don’t let me become entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Guard my heart with all diligence, and keep me from the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. I want to please You, Father, not men. Take away my fleshly desires to be friends with this world, and place in me desires to follow after You. Father, I no longer want to be conformed to this world. I want to be transformed to do Your will. I want to be a city that is set on a hill and cannot be hid. No longer do I want to serve man. I want to serve you, Father. Help me to enter the narrow gate that leads to life. Remind me daily to take up my cross and to follow you, no matter what that cross may be. Grow me closer to you each day and take away the foolishness that is considered wisdom by the world. Thank You for answering prayer and leading me closer to You. You are truly my strength when I am weak. May I bring glory and honor to Your name by being unspotted by the world. In Jesus’ name, amen!
