My Vision of God’s Commands-Lent 11, 2020

Prayer Focus: Why We Should Honor God’s Commands

Almighty God, Father in heaven, forgive me for those times when I view Your commands as being restrictive, limiting, and too hard to obey. Help me to see there is freedom in Your commands. There is peace with You and peace within as I obey them. Your commands are always worth honoring and all of mankind could save ourselves tremendous heartache and a world of problems by having obeyed them back in the Garden of Eden and today. Open my eyes to the life and light in obeying You. Give me a heart to know that Your commands are a discipline of love. Thank You, for forgiving me when I fail, for taking me back when I’ve wandered, and for seeking me when I was lost. There is no hiding from You when I’ve failed to live up to Your commands. There is no such thing as a secret sin. Help me to fear Your judgment, knowing all things of my life will be laid bare before You as they are already known by You. I deceive only myself when I try to hide. Please help me to keep short accounts with You, repenting quickly when Your Holy Spirit brings things to mind. I want to follow Jesus and to live as He did. Help me to find life in Your commands. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
