Dear Heavenly Father,

Help me conquer my mind, so sin does not rule my heart: “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions” (Rom. 6:12).  Lord, often I am a victim to my own desires, though I want to live a life free from things that hurt you.  I thank you for being so faithful to me, for not abandoning me to my desires. Thank you for holding on to me, even when I’ve been stubborn and rebellious.  I don’t want to sin, but I frequently fail. At times, I allow sin to control me.  “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10).  Lord, you created the entire Universe, I’m confident you can help my heart, making it dynamically new, energizing it with the fuel of spiritual vigor.

I hate my sin, yet at times love it.  Let sin’s hold on me diminish, let me have less satisfaction, in its value.  Let my sin, become tarnished, and old, having less and less enjoyment in my life.  And let spiritual delights grow, satisfying me as nothing else can.  Let me be fully satisfied in you.  “Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit” (Psalm 51:12). Thank you for faithfully, lovingly, caring for me, and never letting me be satisfied with anything other than you.  Do not let success, wealth, passions, anything — replace you in my life.  Fill me with you, so my mind is like your mind, simply delighting in holiness, and satisfied in your love.

Then, let my life reflect you, so others get a glimpse of the divine.  I want people to see and know you. If you choose to use me, help me to be faithful.  I want to be fully satisfied in you, so others can believe that you truly are magnificent.  I pray this in Jesus’ name,   Amen.
