Lord..please help me. Give me the ability to take captive every thought so that my mind may be obedient to you. Give me self control over what my intellect entertains and what my heart feels. I do not want to give the enemy a foothold. I do not want to accept pity, and therefore feel justified in my behavior. I want a heart that is undivided. Help me to want to do what is right, take action to do what is right, and consequently feel what is right, good, true, holy, and pure.
Philipians 4..."Whatever is good...think about such things." I despise this struggle. Help me to deal with it so it doesn't become part of who I am.
