Prayer for Renewing the Mind
(From the book Prayers I, by Dr. Mary Craig)
Holy Father, I thank You that I shall prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers (3 John 2). I have the mind of Christ, the Messiah, and do hold the thoughts, feelings, and purposes of His heart (1 Cor. 2:16). I trust in You, Lord, with all my heart. I lean not unto my own understanding, but in all my ways, I acknowledge You, and You shall direct my paths (Prov. 3:5,6).
Today I submit myself to Your Word which is able to expose and discern the very thoughts and purposes of my heart (Heb. 4:12). The weapons of my warfare are not carnal, but mighty through You to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down vain imaginations, I refute arguments and every proud and lofty thing that exalts itself against the true knowledge of God; and I lead every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor. 10:4,5).
Today I shall be transformed by the renewing of my mind, that I may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2). Your Word, Lord, shall not depart out of my mouth; but I shall meditate on it day and night, that I may observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then I shall make my way prosperous; then I shall have good success (Joshua 1:8).
My thoughts are the thoughts of the diligent which tend only to plenteousness (Prov. 21:5). Therefore, I will not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, I will make my requests known. Your peace which transcends all understanding shall guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Today I fix my mind on whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is kind. If there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, I will think on these things (Phil. 4:6-8).
Today I commit to You, Lord, whatever I do, trusting that my plans will succeed (Prov. 16:3).
With my soul, I bless you, Lord (Psalm 103:1). Grant me grace to keep my mind stayed upon You (Isaiah 26:3) and that I might remain in your presence. Help me to walk in love and not keep records of wrongs (1 Cor. 13). Help me to set my mind on things above and not on earthly things (Col. 3:2).
In Jesus' Name, I will practice what I have learned and received and heard and seen in Christ and model my way of living on it, and the God of peace will be with me (Phil. 4:9).
Thank You, Father, that my life is hid with Christ in God and that I have redemption and renewal in Jesus (Col 3).
In the Name of Jesus. Amen.
