I do not want to live in a world where I am only concerned with me. I do not want to miss out on anything, anyone, or an opportunity to spread the Gospel because I am so focused on me. Help me focus on the purpose and plan you have for my life.
If I am addicted, programmed, and lured to social media, Father, heal my mind. I desire to spent time in your Word, study Scripture, and worship the Living God. I do not want my life to be compared with another’s. I do not want to feel when I am not “like” enough. I rebuke any feelings of sadness, competitiveness, demeaning, or boasting on social media. If this has been detrimental to my spirit, then Lord, help me stay off the electronics.
I desire to live a different life. A life scheduled, structured, purposeful, joyful, and thankful each and everyday. I desire to keep my commitments, even if it means missing out on something else. I desire to teach my children by being a good example to them and to those around me. I pray to say thankful, paying attention to the cashiers, waitresses, and any service people I come in contact with. I truly desire change.
Lord, I do not want to put myself or my family in danger by driving while on the phone. Nothing is that important for me to pick up the phone while driving down a highway. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who can gently remind me to wait, pray, and seek Your kingdom first.
Thank you Lord electronics do not have to rule my life. Thank you I can say no, stop selfies, texting, posting, measuring myself against my “likes”, and always trying to gain the approval of others. Praise Your Lord for Your Truth. Bring me into a deeper relationship with Christ. Remind me this life is fleeting and I want to spend it with you. In the name of Jesus of Nazareth I pray, amen.
