Renew by Mind

Renew My Mind


Father God, You who make all things new through the power of the Holy Spirit, renew my mind, I pray! May I not conform to the things of this world, but instead may I be continually transformed by the renewing of my mind with Your Word.

Lord in many ways I have been lazy and undisciplined in regards to the use of my mind. Forgive me, I pray, and renew my mind. I lay before you my use of my computer and technology, my TV and DVD viewing, the things I read . . . (Pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you.)

I have entertained philosophies of the world that are contrary to Your Word. Lord, forgive me and renew my mind. I lay before you the way that I have rationalized behavior or condoned values of this world. . . (Pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you.)

I have watered down the truth of Your Word in order to condone my sin. Lord forgive me and renew my mind. I lay before you the excuses that I have made for my thoughts, attitudes, and actions that are contrary to Your Word . . . (Pause and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you.)

I have allowed fear and anxious thoughts to overwhelm me. Lord, forgive me and renew my mind and make my heart steadfast. I choose now to cast all of my cares and fears onto You and ask that Your peace be poured out on me . . . (Pause and allow the Holy Spirit

to speak to you.)

Give me, I pray, a fresh hunger to study Your Word, that I might be equipped for every good work. And Father, in a world of watered-down truth, empty philosophies, and hopelessness, empower me by Your Spirit to be prepared to answer everyone who asks me to give the reason for the hope that I have. May Jesus be seen clearly in my daily living. Strengthen my faith, Father, for Your Word says that if I do not stand firm in my faith I will not stand at all. O God, help me to stand. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer Points

Praise God for being perfectly just in all his works. Thank him for loving righteousness and justice (Ps. 33:5). Confess any ungodly bias you harbor toward any people. Commit yourself to viewing others with a loving, Christlike attitude. Ask God to help you value justice more highly in all relationships of life.

Pray for the uprooting of governments which oppress their citizens and withhold justice from them. Ask that justice will “roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing

Celebrate the Women in Your Life


This is Women’s History Month. We have a great history. Today let’s think about and pray for the women in our lives who have influenced our lives even in small but impactful, endearing and /or life changing ways. The woman may have influence you to be or to strive to become a successful entrepreneur. She may have shown you the loving example of what is true friendship or is a woman who models the message of Christ. She may be a marketplace influencer in her niche or mountain God has assigned her.

This woman may be someone who has poured into you and inspires you to follow your dreams with action. You love this woman’s spirit of excellence. She may have a kind loving spirit, she may be someone who inspires you to run on or who in love and with the right spirit tells you the truth and stretches you to excellence.

This woman may be someone who is unassuming, but is there when you need her, can be trusted and will step in when needed. She is the woman who has a praying spirit and is a faithful intercessor that bears fruit in the Kingdom. You may admire the way she manages her household, raises her children and loves her family. The fact that she is a faithful steward and a Doer of the Word in action inspires you. She may be the woman who always support you, knows all about you, yet loves you anyway, yet tells you the truth and what is right to do, and lets you know you can do all things.

You may have little contact with this woman, but you take notice of her spirit of excellence and what she is doing and you respect her. You may even just want to encourage this woman to keep the faith and not to grow weary in well doing.

Take action: 1. Pray for her, her business and family. 2. Tell her why and how you admire her or take note of her 3. Ask her what you can do to help her,

On the first day of Women’s History Month PRAY.

Pray for families, children, women and against human traffking(modern slavery) . Pray that women will be honored in their unique, God created glory; that every kind of injustice toward women will cease; for pornography to be stopped; for protection from sexual violence; that hope be renewed for the beauty of marriage and children; that single women will lay hold of God’s full purpose in their lives
