A Prayer to Adopt the Right Mindset
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your Word says, “be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2). I know that my thoughts influence my life. I also know that I can be transformed and my life can be transformed by the renewing of my mind. I’ve come a long way from who I used to be. Yet, I know there is so much more for me to become. I pray that You help instill in me the right mindset to go where You’d have me go next.
I can definitely identify some areas in my life where I don’t have the best mindset. Places where I’m selfish and inflexible or have low expectations of people (so what’s the point?). At the same time I know in order for You to answer my specific prayers (You know the ones) I have to adopt a selfless and flexible mindset. Furthermore, if I am to accomplish Your will for my life I can’t hold on to this same mindset. I’m praying for Your guidance. I’m praying for your grace.
To be honest, a part of me doesn’t want to change my attitude and mindset as it relates to some things. Life and circumstances have brought me to a place where compromise and serving others seems counter intuitive and self sabotaging. But I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I know that I am meant to grow and be molded by You. So even though a part of me is resistant I know my mindset needs to be renewed so my prayers can be answered and my life can be transformed.
Guide me, Lord. Plant in me a new way of thinking. Give me new thoughts and new beliefs. I pray for the strength to fully adopt a new way of thinking that aligns with Your Word and the things You have for me to do. Help me release the thoughts and beliefs that do not serve me and will actually hinder me in the places which You are taking me. Help me to trust You above all things that I might not be reluctant to think or do what my humanness believes is “unfair”. Help me to be confident in knowing that You are ordering my steps and can “right” any “wrongs”.
Thank you for hearing my prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen
