{Philippians 3:8-11; ESV}
Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for delivering me from the kingdom of darkness and bringing me into the Kingdom of Your Son Jesus! Empower me to live a life that is worthy of him and that glorifies You!

Lord God I plead that You will change my heart.  Help me to see this world from the perspective of eternity.  Remind me of the temporary nature of the things that I possess and the achievements I have accomplished.  Give me a heart that longs to know Jesus as the most important part of my life.  A heart that is willing to suffer persecution in order to know Jesus a little bit better.  I need the strength and courage to break away from the things of this world and to set my heart and mind fully on Jesus.

Father help me to know Jesus and to experience his resurrection power in my life.  It is in the powerful of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!
