Today's Prayer: Self-Control
Tuesday, August 09, 2011
Your Word teaches that when we truly experience Your saving grace we find the power to say no to wasteful passions and to live self-controlled and productive lives. Lord, I need your help to overcome my laziness and self-deception. Teach me and change me, Lord. I want to become self-controlled. Today it seems that self-indulgence is the drug of choice on every corner, but I don't want my appetites to dominate my life! You promise to live powerfully through me so that I might love you and serve others. Lord, please, show me how to build the walls of self-control and restraint around my life. I relinquish my rebellious will, which robs me of the self-control You want me to choose.
Thank you for helping me today.
