Abba Father, you are the author and finisher of my faith, you knew me when I was within my mother’s womb. You know my destiny and you have orchestrated my life so that I may be successful. You have been a faithful friend throughout my life.
Heavenly Father, many times I find myself being cynical and unkind. Sometimes, I let the cares of this world harden my heart.
He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend. – Proverbs 22:11
Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me. – Psalm 51:10
Yet I know it shouldn’t be like this. My Lord, I pray that you give me a pure heart, as I am jaded by the hurts of this world.
I want to love as you love, and care as you care. I need that peace that passes all understanding. When I look at how carefree children are, I remember:
Matthew 5:5 God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.
I want Purity of Spirit
God, I want to be that way. I want purity of spirit, I want humility.
I want you to use me as a vessel of honor unto your name, so that whatever I do and whoever I speak with, they will see the Christ in me.

Abba, this world is not easy but you make my existence worth it. Father, help me to keep my eyes on you and help me to guard my heart.
Help me to look at every trial as an experience and learn from it so that I may be a blessing unto others with my testimony. Help me to conquer every obstacle, as you promised in your word.
Deuteronomy 28:13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail.
GIVE ME WISDOM AS YOU GAVE SOLOMON WHEN HE ASKED.
Father, help me to take my eyes off myself and my problems and give them fully to you. Lord. I want to be mindful of the plight of others.
Give me wisdom as you gave Solomon when he asked. Give me the wisdom to offer wise council to others.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. – Matthew 5:8
Almighty Father, put the words in my mouth to build up and not break down.
Help me to uplift and not destroy, to bring this tongue under subjection, Father. I want to be kind, Lord and I look to you for this kindness. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only and not be beneath. Click To Tweet
Nick Vujicic on Learn To Live The Life God Has Called You To
Jesus, Lover of chastity, Mary, Mother most pure, and Joseph, chaste guardian of the Virgin,
to you I come at this hour, begging you to plead with God for me.
I earnestly wish to be pure in thought, word and deed in imitation of your own holy purity.
Obtain for me, then, a deep sense of modesty which will be reflected in my external conduct.
Protect my eyes, the windows of my soul, from anything that might dim the luster of a heart that must mirror only Christlike purity.
And when the “Bread of Angels becomes the Bread of me” in my heart at Holy Communion, seal it forever against the suggestions of sinful pleasures.
Heart of Jesus, Fount of all purity, have mercy on us!
(Pray The Rosary Apostolate)
