Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain!
Lord, guide me into the proper priorities, seeking first Your kingdom and Your righteousness. Keep me from being concerned with my selfish desire, but direct me in serving my neighbors and into supplying their spiritual and temporal needs
Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things, and give me life in your ways.
Often times, Lord, I am tired and listless, not realizing that You are there to encourage and refresh. But when I shift my gaze from the trivial and temporal to the eternal and significant, that I begin to find life and joy. Righteousness, peace and joy is to be found in Your Word, it defines Kingdom living.
