Praying from James 1:22 relating to Action, Deception, Self-Deception.
Dear God, please help me to not only hear your word but to also be a doer of it. May I not deceive myself by only listening but failing to act on your teachings. Give me the strength and courage to live out your word in my daily life. Amen.
Verse: But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding your own selves.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to not only hear the word but also to do it, otherwise they will be deceiving themselves.
