Prayer to purify your motives

Why do you do what you do? In your family life, at work – even at church – what motivates your actions? Do you want to control things? Do you want attention or recognition? Are you driven by greed? Or do you want to be a source of healing, service and love that glorifies God?

The enemy is very skillful at fooling us. He makes you think your good intentions are enough – even if mixed with selfish motives.

Seek the presence of God. Invest the time to examine your conscience. Let the Holy Spirit reveal to you where your motives might be impure. Then give up the things that make you a slave to your flesh. Be set free by the purifying work of Christ Jesus.
