Praying from Matthew 18:9. Themes: Repentance, Sacrifice, Hell.
Dear Lord, help me to recognize the things in my life that cause me to stumble and lead me away from you. Give me the strength and courage to remove them from my life, even if it means sacrificing something that I hold dear. Help me to prioritize my eternal life with you over temporary pleasures and worldly desires. May I always choose to follow you, even if it means walking a difficult path. Thank you for your love and guidance. Amen.
Verse: If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the Gehenna of fire.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to remove anything that causes them to sin, even if it is as drastic as removing an eye, in order to avoid eternal punishment in Gehenna.
