A prayer for my mind

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12 v 2)

For the word transformed, Paul uses the word from which we get metamorphosis. Transformation doesn’t lead to death any more than a cocoon leads to the death of the caterpillar. It is, instead, the beginning of life. It is an entrance into the kind of life that God wills for us. So here is my prayer this morning:

Lord, renew my mind. It is the area that becomes the playground for so many negative thoughts. Be my Saviour in that place. Save me from every anxious thought. These are not my thoughts, they come from the enemy, I must take hold of them and stop their destructive pathway. Saviour, save me. My hope is in you. My future is in you. I was saved, I am saved and I will be saved in the future.
