Praying from 1 John 2:17 relating to Ephemerality, Temptation, Obedience
Dear God, I thank you for the promise that those who do your will remain forever, even as the world and its lusts pass away. I pray that you would help me to always seek your will and follow your ways, so that I may experience the eternal life that you have promised. May I never be swayed by the temporary pleasures of this world, but always keep my eyes fixed on you and your eternal kingdom. Thank you for your faithfulness and for the hope that you give us through your promises. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
