Holy Spirit, keep me focused only on Jesus. Convict me when I move too close to your hedge of protection. Prick me with the thorns of the hedge to alert me to dangers and move me back to the center of God’s will and purpose for my life. I hope only in the promise of Christ for relationship with him now and eternal life together with Him in glory. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.” (1 Timothy 4:7-10 ESV)
