Turn My Heart and My Eyes

- This is a prayer we all should pray. We all struggle with selfishness more or less. The natural inclination of our heart is self-gain. Pray against covetousness and self-centeredness. "For the love of money is a root of all kind of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." (1 Timothy 6:10) Ask God to incline our heart (the center of the human spirit which dictates emotions, thoughts, motivations, and actions) to His statutes.

- We also need God to help us turn our eyes (the window to external influences) from looking at worthless things (the vain things of this world, idols), from looking at things that tempt us, lead us astray, and/or cause us to have discontent, envy, greed, covetousness, and lust. "If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell." (Matthew 5:29) "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness." (Matthew 6:22-23) Keep Christ in view at all times! Ask God to preserve our lives according to His Word in His ways.
