Keeping Your Heart and Mind Focused

1. Lord, help me to not be conceited this week.

2. Keep me from envying my friend, my coworker, and other women that I may meet along the way.

3. On days that peace is unsettled, remind me to pursue peace with all people, even the difficult ones.

4. God help me to not window shop for what I don’t have or can’t afford. Help me to be content.

5. Check my spirit when I consider showing partiality among other women, esteeming one as more valued.

6. I will seek the best interest of others instead of becoming a self seeker. God, help me to put other people’s needs before my own.

7. Deceit will not be found in my heart. I will not become a woman that deceitfully uses others for my own agenda or gain.

8. And above all else, let me check and recheck those that are close to my inner thoughts, those that I call friends and glean from their advice. Help me to choose them wisely.
