We have been continuing to pray through various themes this summer derived from this article: https://www.cru.org/us/en/train-and-grow/spiritual-growth/prayer/what-to-pray-for.html#12. This month we will be praying through different character traits that we would desire Christ to build within us.
Pray for Your Mind to Be Renewed
What the Bible says
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — His good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
Why it Matters
The way you think often determines the way you act. The church God has built to bring about change in the world always faces the danger of being corrupted by the widely accepted ways of doing things in the culture around it.
The letter to the Romans teaches us about the change that happens in you when you become a Christian and the change God continues to bring about in you. As you spend time in God’s Word and talk with Him in prayer, He shapes your perspective on what is most valuable, on your purpose in life and on the pathway to peace and joy.
How you Might Pray
God, please renew my mind so that I will know what You are calling me to do. Help me to do the right thing rather than the accepted or “normal” thing. As I read Your word, remind me of who I am, who You are and what my purpose here on earth is.
