 Prayer for a Clean Heart

Prayer for a Clean Heart
"Father in Heaven, take away from my heart: anything that does not bow before Thee as Lord; whatever in me does not have Thy name on it; all that is resistant to thy Spirit; everything impure and unworthy of thee; attitudes and opinions and convictions that do not originate in Thee; desires and motives and plans and ambitions in conflict with Thy will for my life; anything that runs and hides when You enter, that laughs when I believe, that squirms when I pray, that fears when I trust; whatever in me does not give Thee joy, make Thee proud, or serve Thy purpose; all of this, and everything else that holds me back, weighs me down, and cheapens the product."
Dr. Joe McKeever***

 Re: Prayer for a Clean Heart

Check this out:

The Holy Club of Oxford, which was made up of John Wesley, Charles Wesley, George Whitfield and others, asked themselves the following questions each day in their personal devotional time:

1. Am I consciously or unconsciously creating the impression that I'm better than I really am? In other words, am I a hypocrite?

2. Am I honest in all my acts and words, or do I exaggerate?

3. Do I confidentially pass on what was told to me in confidence?

4. Can I be trusted?

5. Am I a slave to dress, friends, work or habits?

6. Am I self-conscious, self-pitying or self justifying?

7. Did the Bible live in me today?

8. Do I give it time to speak to me everyday?

9. Am I enjoying prayer?

10. When did I last speak to someone else about my faith?

11. Do I pray about the money I spend?

12. Do I get to bed on time and get up on time?

13. Do I disobey God in anything?

14. Do I insist upon doing something about which my conscience is uneasy?

15. Am I defeated in any part of my life?

16. Am I jealous, impure, critical, irritable, touchy or distrustful?

17. How do I spend my spare time?

18. Am I proud?

19. Do I thank God that I am not as other people, especially as the Pharisees who despised the publican?

20. Is there anyone whom I fear, dislike, disown, criticize, hold a resentment toward or disregard? If so, what I am doing about it?

21. Do I grumble or complain constantly?

22. Is Christ real to me?

I have a copy of this on my bulletin board. I need to make one for the refrigerator also.

Brings to mind one of my favorite verse's:

"Therefore let him who thinks he stand take heed lest he fall." 1 Cor 10:12
