Matthew 6 From the Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6 From the Lord's Prayer
Thy kingdom come

Wait in prayer for God's will or ideas to come to your mind.

Pray for the ideas that come to your mind using Scripture for faith in believing what you are praying for.

Give us daily bread
Ask for your daily needs. Don't assume your money will provide everything.
Such as:

Remember what you have done in the past that is not settled which is wrong
Ask for God's forgiveness.

Pray for help with current problems

Ask for wisdom from temptation.

Kingdom – Its God's kingdom we are His subjects.
Power – It is God's power
Glory – The purpose of our life is God's glory.

Follow God's ways and succeed.
Josh 1:8
Psalm 81:13-16
Luke 6:12

Guard Your Heart

Proverbs 4:23 "Watch over your heart with all diligence. For from it flows the springs of life."

One aspect of guarding your heart is addressed in Psalm 119:11 "Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against you."

Another aspect is addressed in Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely whatever is of good requite, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise dwell on these things." Don't let your mind dwell on what is not from God. Dwell on what is from God.

What you say reveals what is in your heart. Mark 7:17-23 If you find yourself complaining, gossiping, or cussing. Go to God and repent and ask Him to fill you with His word. Train yourself to speak words of grace to others. Speak words that will encourage others to follow Jesus.

Matt 26:41 Watch and pray against sin.
Acts 20:31 1 Cor 16:13 Col 4:2 Be on the alert day and night with prayer.
1 Cor 10:12 Don't think you have made it. Stay humble.
Rom 16:19,20 1 Pet 5:8 Don't forget we have an enemy but we are conquers through Jesus. Rom 8:37

The best defense is a good offense. Serve Jesus and your heart will be steadfast. Isa 58:6-14; 2 Cor 10:3-5;
Eph 6:10-18 Here is a list of the armor of God. Use it all and live victorious.

Here is a Bible study I wrote on this subject.
