Heavenly Father, Creator and Designer of everything we see, hear, smell, and taste. i humbly approach Your throne of grace and mercy. Lord, You created man and woman to be in relationship with You, Lord. it is the sin in us that creates a sick desire to have absurd thoughts. Father forgive me of my sin of lust. Restore me to focus on You, to fill my mind with Your Word, Truth, and Life. in everything I do and everything I say today Lord may it bring honor and glory to Your Almighty Name. Amen

Father God, Lord of All, we come to You today to thank You for giving us the wisdom to know when we are coveting the wrong things. This can be matters of the flesh, money, status, or anything that takes our focus from You. When we feel ourselves desiring, let us get our focus back on You and the cross. Empower us to feel, and believe, You are sufficient for us. Give us strength Father. Praying in the name of Jesus. Amen

In a world that preaches to gaze and lust after pretty much everything, this one has to be one of the hardest to control. The more I pray and catch myself it gets a drop easier. Amazing how the world accepts so much if this and wants us to sin openly. Could use the prayers I’m sure for a lot f us on this one. God bless brothers, you got my prayers

man that's some good stuff

DAY 165: When Lust Takes Over

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.    ~ Matthew 5: 27-28

Even if no one has noticed you gazing at her... your heart doesn't lie.  Be careful guys. Never allow a glance turn into a gaze.  

Jesus clearly teaches us that purity begins in our heart and mind.  You can appreciate beauty - just don't idolize it.   If you catch yourself staring a little too long... turn to look at God instead.

Switch that that pathetic thought into a powerful prayer for the person caught in your gaze.
